Mr Selfridge to return for 4th series

Mr Selfridge will be returning to the small screen for a fourth series. The period drama starring Emmy award-winning American actor Jeremy Piven as the eponymous Harry Selfridge will air ten new episodes in 2016.

Jeremy and former Coronation Street actress Katherine Kelly will return to the show, ITV has confirmed, alongside series regulars Tom Goodman-Hill, Ron Cook, Amanda Abbington, Amy Beth Hayes, Trystan Gravelle, Sacha Parkinson and Samuel West.

Line of Duty actor Sacha Dhawan will join the cast for the new series playing a major new character, while newcomers Lottie Tolhurst and Mimi Ndiweni have been cast in guest roles.

ITV's Director of Drama, Steve November, said: "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."

Meanwhile, executive producer Kate Lewis has teased that the fourth series will be a "game changer" for the characters in the period drama as Mr Selfridge "loses grip on his empire", which he has worked so hard to create.

The third series continues on Sunday 15 March at 9pm on ITV.
