ITV has commissioned a fourth series of Mr Selfridge.
The period production – dramatising the life of Selfridges’ founder Harry Selfridge – will return to the broadcaster’s schedules in 2016 with ten new episodes. Jeremy Piven will reprise his lead role of the colourful but deeply troubled American entrepreneur while former cast member Katherine Kelly is set to return as alluring socialite, Lady Mae Loxley.
Series four will focus on Harry Selfridge’s dramatic fall as he loses hold on the empire and social status that he worked so hard to attain.
“We’re delighted to commission a fourth series of Mr Selfridge. It’s so pleasing to see the audience take the characters and storylines into their hearts. We’re looking forward to seeing Jeremy reprise his role as the visionary yet deeply troubled Harry alongside simply stunning production values” – Director of Drama, Steve November
Series regulars Tom Goodman-Hill, Ron Cook, Amanda Abbington, Amy Beth Hayes and Trystan Gravelle, Sacha Parkinson and Samuel West will also be back to chart further developments in their character’s lives. The fourth run will also feature a major new character played by Sacha Dhawan and guest roles for newcomers Lottie Tolhurst and Mimi Ndiweni.
Filming will once again take place on the lavish reproduction of Selfridge’s shop floor that is housed in a former carpet warehouse in North West London.
“We’re delighted to be embarking on production of the fourth series of Mr Selfridge and thrilled to be welcoming back Katherine Kelly along with introducing some talented new faces. This series marks a dramatic turn in fortunes for Harry as he loses grip on his empire. It’s a bit of a game changer for all the characters in the series.” – Executive Producer, Kate Lewis
Mr Selfridge is distributed internationally by ITV Studios Global Entertainment and has now been sold to over 150 countries. The third series will have its US premiere on Sunday 29 March, on MASTERPIECE on PBS.
