“Professor T,” the crime series produced by Eagle Eye Drama, and starring Ben Miller (“Bridgerton”), has been greenlit for a fourth season by ITV and PBS Distribution.

Attracting audiences of over four million viewers on ITV and making a successful debut on France 3, the highly acclaimed drama has been sold to almost 120 territories worldwide. 

Most recently, Telekom acquired rights in Germany, TV3 bought the series for Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova 1 for Moldova, and BBC and TVP for Poland. Seasons 1 and 2 were sold to Nova in Greece and Cyprus.

The series is handled internationally by Beta Film, while PBS Distribution holds North American rights. 

“Professor T” is produced by London-based Eagle Eye for ITV and PBS Distribution, in association with Flanders-based Happy Duck Films, tapping the Belgian Tax Shelter.

Its Season 4 will be directed by Belgian helmers Dries Vos (“The Couple Next Door”) and Kaat Beels (“Hotel Beau Séjour”) with Eagle Eye co-founders ‘s Jo McGrath and Walter Iuzzolino returning as executive producers.   

In the brand new season, Frances de la Tour (“Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” “The History Boys”), Juliet Stevenson (“Truly,” “Madly, Deeply”) and Barney White (“Masters of The Air”) will reunite once more with Professor Tempest (Miller) using his unique insight and analysis to help the police.

The show is set against the stunning backdrop of one of the most prestigious of educational institutions, Cambridge University. It returns six months after the shocking finale of Season 3, and the team must overcome their grief to tackle a dangerous crime wave.

This time, the gloves are well and truly off for Professor T in his lectures and a new musical pursuit, romance is very much alive for his mother Adelaide Tempest (De la Tour), and the lines between professional and personal become blurred for therapist Helena Goldberg (Stevenson).

Meanwhile, DI Maiya Goswami (Sunetra Sarker) takes charge of the police force with series favorite DS Dan Winters (White) fiercely at her side.

“’Professor T’’s unique mix of clever cases, compelling series arcs and an outstanding cast of warm, memorable characters have proven to be a big hit with audiences around the world,” said McGrath, CCO at Eagle Eye, which launched Belgian company Happy Duck Films in 2022. 

Leading actor Ben Miller added: “There’s nothing out there quite like ‘Professor T,’ with its unique mix of complex crimes and captivating characters, all set against the beautiful backdrop of Cambridge; the central enigma being the Professor himself… a mystery I hope to investigate for many seasons to come.!”

“The perfect mix of exciting and tumultuous cases paired with the incredible cast has turned ‘Professor T’ into an audience favorite in over 120 territories worldwide. We are very proud of our partnership with Eagle Eye Drama and the tremendous success stories stemming from it,” commented Oliver Bachert, chief distribution officer at Beta Film.
