There have already been 3 season of a British historical drama series Mr. Selfridge. It’s been familiar to the American audience thanks to the PBS channel. The lucky UK-based viewers have the possibility to watch it right before it is broadcast in the US. But let’s stick to the point of this post: those of you who have been hoping for a renewal, can let out a sigh of relief — season 4 of Mr. Selfridge will be out in 2016.
What is Mr. Selfridge about?
The British drama show tells a story of the founder of Selfridges department store, Harry Gordon Selfridge.
