Series overview
 
ITV returns to the blue skies of Corfu this Spring for the final series of much-loved drama, The Durrells.
 
Produced by successful drama indie, Sid Gentle Films Ltd. in a co-production with MASTERPIECE, the new series will see acclaimed actress Keeley Hawes (The Missing, Bodyguard) reprise her role as matriarch, Louisa Durrell, for a final set of sun-soaked episodes.
 
She is once again joined by young acting talents 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 in the ITV drama.
 
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.
 
Based on conservationist and author Gerald Durrell’s trilogy of books about his family’s time in Corfu during the 1930s, the fourth series has once again been written by BAFTA award nominee Simon Nye (Men Behaving Badly, Reggie Perrin) and been filmed on the beautiful Greek island.
 
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.
 
Episode 2
 
Leslie runs into Daphne and admitting seeing her makes him want his own family, agrees to help her out with childcare. The very same day he’s set to look after the baby, however, Leslie offers to host a hunt for new guest, Colonel Ribbindane, much to Gerry’s disgust.
 
Desperate to bring in the money now that he’s the man of the family, Leslie cajoles Basil into pretending to be a wild boar when there appears to be a lack of them on the island, whilst Gerry voices strong objections to the hunt and together with Galini tries to sabotage it.
 
Meanwhile, confused over his feelings, Basil declares his love for Louisa, even going as far as buying her a bridge and Margo moves in with Theo in an attempt to fly the nest.
