Mr Selfridge to end after fourth series

Mr Selfridge  creator Andrew Davies has revealed the hit ITV drama will likely end after series four.

The drama starring Jeremy Piven was “always conceived” with four seasons in mind.

Davies explained to Digital Spy: “It was always conceived of as four series – that is, if people liked it enough. People seem to love it, so I think we can do the four series.”

The shows creator also hinted the show’s upcoming third run will see Jeremy Piven’s Harry Selfridge grow “darker and wilder”, following the death of his wife.

“He was just such a good boy all through the second series – I’d like him to cut loose in the third,” the writer said.

“[In real life] he became increasingly wild and reckless and finished up penniless – so it’s got a tragic arc at the end. I guess we’re going to stick to that.”
