You have to wait a year, but new episodes of Foyles War will be returning to PBS in 2013.
Masterpiece Mystery, along with Acorn Media and Eleventh Hour Films, have come together to do a trio of episodes starring Michael Kitchen and Honeysuckle Weeks as Inspector Foyle and his assistant, Sam (short for Samantha).
Foyles War was a series based during World War II and set in the English countryside. Foyle dealt with local tensions caused by a number of challenges: American troops clashing with locals, German POWs, threats to the American aid for Britain, and art theft.
The new series is based in the hungry years after the war, 1946-1947, when England was still suffering from rationing and other problems.
According to PBS, Foyle has become a senior intelligence officer dealing with communist sympathizers and traitors. Hes involved in the world of espionage in support of Britains security, defense and the government.
The Foyles series has been part of PBS Masterpiece Mystery for eight years. For the new series, Acorn Media worked with the creator, Anthony Horowitz, and producer Jill Green, who also founded Eleventh Hour Films. Foyles War has been a hit in the U.K. since 2002.
In June, Acorn Media released The Best of Foyles War, a collection chosen by actor Michael Kitchen of six feature-length episodes. Also included were interviews with Horowitz and Weeks.
