The final series of ITV‘s The Durrells begins tomorrow night.
Keeley Hawes (Bodyguard) reprises her role as matriarch Louisa Durrell in the drama, which is set in Corfu. She is joined by Josh O’Connor (Les Miserables), Callum Woodhouse (Cold Feet), Daisy Waterstone (And Then There Were None) and Milo Parker (Mr Holmes) who play her unruly and spirited on-screen children.

Other cast returning include Alexis Georgoulis (My Life In Ruins) as the charming Spiro, Miles Jupp (Howards End) as hapless cousin Basil, Anna Savva (Genius) as housekeeper Lugaretzia, Yorgos Karamihos (Love Is…) as Dr. Theo Stephanides and Lucy Black (Jericho) as Florence Petridis.
The Durrells is based on conservationist and author Gerald Durrell’s trilogy of books about his family’s time in Corfu during the 1930s. The fourth and final series has been written by BAFTA award nominee Simon Nye (Men Behaving Badly).
Following the events of the last series, the future is looking bright for the Durrells, with all of the family channelling their heartbreak in different ways. Choosing to keep herself busy, Louisa (Keeley Hawes) has opened the doors of the family villa as a guest house, but with Basil as their only paying guest, the business is still to find its feet and customers.
Meanwhile, Larry (Josh O’Connor), struggling to get his risqué Black Book published, is enjoying the love of two ballet dancers, whilst heartbroken Leslie (Callum Woodhouse) has thrown himself back into his job and shooting.
True to form, Gerry (Milo Parker) continues to collect animals, ambitiously planning to open a zoo with a new owl and some lemurs joining the menagerie, and Margo (Daisy Waterstone) seeks a new challenge, starting her own beauty salon.
The Durrells returns on Sunday 7th April at 8pm on ITV.
