Lindy Woodhead, author of Shopping, Seduction and Mr Selfridge, the book that inspired the series, continues in her role as advisor on retail history.
Filming will take place on location in Greater London on the lavish replica of the Selfridge’s shop floor that is housed in a former carpet warehouse in North West London.
Dominic Barlow (The Mill, The Crash, Garrow’s Law) will return as Series Producer and ITV Studios’ Kate Lewis (Lightfields, Vera, Marchlands) will executive produce alongside the lead writer, Helen Raynor. Rebecca Eaton executive produces for WGBH.
The new series has been commissioned for ITV by Director of Drama Steve November and Controller of Drama Victoria Fea.
“We’re delighted to commission a fourth series of Mr Selfridge,” said Steve. “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”.
Kate Lewis, executive producer for ITV Studios said: “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.’
