The Durrells in Corfu and in Bournemouth and Beyond

Keeley Hawes who plays Louisa Durrell and The Durrells scriptwriter Simon Nye.

ITV have announced that they have commissioned a fourth series of The Durrells to be broadcast in Britain in spring 2019, while PBS says it will be shown in America that autumn (where it is called The Durrells in Corfu).

And scriptwriter Simon Nye discusses the longer term future, suggesting the story of the Durrells might well run to five series before the family leaves Corfu, after which the action would shift to Bournemouth and maybe look in on Larry in Egypt.
