'Lewis' will end on ITV after seventh series, confirms Laurence Fox

By
Laurence Fox has revealed that the seventh series of ITV1 detective drama Lewis will be the show's last.

Fox claimed that the programme's star Kevin Whately and himself had agreed to call it a day to prevent the series becoming "a bit samey".

"Kev and I have decided we want to do other things, otherwise it all gets a bit samey," he told The Daily Telegraph.

"I mean we could have gone on forever, but... Oh God, was I supposed to say that? I have no idea if I'm allowed to tell you it's ending. Bloody hell, what if I wasn't?"

ITV gave the show a seventh run in May, claiming that they "remain committed" to the Inspector Morse spin-off. The show has been a regular hit in the ratings for the broadcaster on both Sunday and Wednesday nights.

ITV1's Inspector Morse prequel Endeavour, which stars Shaun Evans in the lead role, was granted a full series commission earlier this year.
