You might be wondering where to watch Endeavour seasons 1-8 and the final season as Morse’s journey in the prequel is finally over

Where to watch Endeavour explained. Seen here are SHAUN EVANS as Endeavour and ROGER ALLAM as Fred Thursday.

The matter of where to watch Endeavour seasons 1-8 might be on your mind as season 9 brought DS Morse’s journey with DI Fred Thursday to a dramatic end.

11 years after Endeavour first introduced fans to a young Endeavour Morse’s early career as a detective the hit drama has finally ended. Throughout the 9 seasons we’ve seen Morse’s experience grow as he learnt from DCI Fred Thursday and impressed him with his determination to leave no stone unturned in the quest for the truth. They’ve become just as iconic a duo as Morse and Lewis in the original Inspector Morse series. And whilst fans will never get to see them investigating new cases, you can enjoy the drama from the very beginning again.

Here we reveal where to watch Endeavour seasons 1-8 and the final season so you can revisit Endeavour Morse’s most ingenious deductions and challenging cases in the Inspector Morse prequel…

Where to watch Endeavour seasons 1-8 in the US

US-based Endeavour fans might have had to wait a little longer than those across the pond to see Endeavour end for good in heart-wrenching style, but you can also enjoy the Morse magic all over again too. Endeavour seasons 1-8 are available to watch via an Amazon Prime subscription which offers a 30 day free trial. Unlike in the UK where ITVX has all seasons of Endeavour in one place, fans would have to add a PBS Masterpiece subscription to their Amazon Prime account to be able to stream season 9 this way.

Seasons 1-8 of Inspector Morse can be watched via Amazon Prime with a BritBox subscription and seasons 1-8 of Lewis - titled Inspector Lewis in the US - can also be watched via Amazon Prime, with a PBS Masterpiece subscription.
