Endeavour - 2nd season. Americans can catch this excellent Inspector Morse prequel every Sunday on PBS, from July 6 to July 20. Bringing back Shaun Evans as Endeavour Morse, and the lovely Roger Allam as his ursine mentor, Inspector Fred Thursday, the show follows the pair as they investigate a series of murders among Oxford's evocative spires. Needless to say, there shall be opera, ale, romance, and old cars. For those of you who can't wait, check out my reviews: Trove, Nocturne, Sway, and Neverland.
Acorn.tv every Monday from July 28 to August 25. Update - Reviews thus far: The Big Four, Dead Man's Folly, Elephants Can Remember, The Labours of Hercules.
Gracepoint - 1st season. Already filmed, and also starring David Tennant, this American remake of the superb British miniseries Broadchurch will air this fall on Fox. Frankly, I'm skeptical. The trailer seems a point-for-point copy of the original - nothing unique. Another thing: will they keep the religious element? It was essential. My review of the original.
Foyle's War - 9th season. Filming has concluded on this superb historical crime drama set during the Cold War, but no word on a release date. From Anthony Horowitz's twitter feed:

The final episode of this season's Foyle's War wrapped last week. Today I'm writing my new series for ITV. It opens in Delhi...

Watched the season finale of Foyle's War last night - and shed a tear. It's a blinder, I promise you.

Inspector Lewis - 8th (7th if you're an American) season. Originally, it seemed that the last season would be the conclusion to this other Morse spin-off, but Kevin Whately and Laurence Fox are back, finished filming in June according to Fox (and air at 9PM Oct 5, 12, and 19, on PBS):
That's a wrap on The 30th Lewis Film. 60 glorious hours of Donald and myself. What a treat... pic.twitter.com/3DCciNUdBL

My review of the first season.
We now know that Sherlock season 4, consisting of three episodes and a special. The special will start filming in January 2015 and will mainly be concerned with working out the ramifications and explanation for the third season finale twist. My reviews of season three: The Empty Hearse, The Sign of Three, and His Last Vow.
Still off in the abstract lie a third season of Endeavour (unconfirmed), a seventh series of Inspector George Gently (confirmed), and the vague rumors about a Discworld crime show featuring Sam Vimes (legit, but still doesn't seem anything solid has been done.)
