It looks like there won’t be a fifth season for the Mr. Selfridge TV series. “It’s the last series,” co-star Amanda Abbington reportedly told What’s On TV, “We won’t be doing any more, which will be really sad because it’s been a part of my life for four years.” While ITV hasn’t confirmed or denied Abbington’s statement, last year series creator Andrew Davies said, “It was always conceived of as four series.”
Mr. Selfridge follows flamboyant businessman Harry Selfridge (Jeremy Piven) who decides to build the biggest and finest department store in the world at the “dead end” of Oxford Street in London. In addition to Piven and Abbington, the series stars Frances O’Connor, Katherine Kelly, Gregory Fitoussi, Aisling Loftus, and Trystan Gravelle.
The third season of Mr. Selfridge, which airs on PBS here in the States, is currently airing. The show has already been renewed for a fourth season of 10 episodes. They’re expected to begin airing next year.
