If you’re wondering what your Sunday night summer plans will be this year, there’s a PBS premiere you should know about. Season 6 of Endeavour, the prequel to the long-running Inspector Morse detective series, will be airing on the network beginning in June.

Endeavour is set in Oxford, England, in the 1960s and follows the life of Endeavour Morse—the hero of Inspector Morse—in his younger years. The first season of Endeavour premiered in 2012. Inspector Morse aired for seven seasons, the first of which began in 1987, and the last of which finished in 1993. You can catch a glimpse of the upcoming season in the preview video below. A few changes are afoot, including a new mustache for the titular character.

Watch the Season 6 preview:

According to PBS, in this new season Endeavour Morse “will be facing new challenges, with Morse having started a new role as a uniformed officer at the Woodstock police department and embracing the fashion of the period by growing a moustache.” As for where this new season begins, PBS sets the scene, “In Episode 1, “Pylon,” the murder of a schoolgirl brings Endeavour back to Oxford. When he refuses to accept that the main suspect is guilty, Endeavour must uncover the truth and rescue a victim before it’s too late.”

Endeavour stars Shaun Evans (Being Julia, Boy A) as Endeavour Morse. It also features Roger Allam (V for Vendetta, Parade’s End) as Detective Inspector Fred Thursday, Anton Lesser (Game of Thrones, The Crown) as Chief Superintendent Reginald Bright, Sean Rigby (Gunpowder, Crossing Seas) as Detective Sergeant Jim Strange, James Bradshaw (Primeval, Brideshead Revisited) as Dr. Max DeBryn, Caroline O’Neill (Doctors, Waterloo Road) as Win Thursday, Sara Vickers (Watchmen, Shetland) as Joan Thursday, and Abigail Thaw (Casualty, Doctors) as Dorothea Frazil.

Season 6, Episode 1 of Endeavour will premiere on PBS June 16, 2019 at 9:00 p.m. ET. Check local listings to confirm, and for more PBS dramas to watch this year, check out Grantchester and Les Misérables.
