Hit & Miss: No Season Two for DirecTV Series

Hit and Miss TV seriesSky Atlantic has opted not to bring Hit & Miss back for a second season. The TV show has been running on DirecTV here in the US. According to Sky Atlantic’s official statement, they only planned for the UK TV series to run for just one season anyway.

It reads, “Hit & Miss was commissioned as a self-contained drama. The series was the first UK drama commissioned for Sky Atlantic and the response from our customers and the press has been overwhelmingly positive. Following the success of this series, Sky Atlantic continues to be committed to investment in original British scripted productions with upcoming drama Falcon, and other productions which will be announced soon.”

Hit & Miss follows Mia (Chloë Sevingy), a contract killer with a secret: she’s a pre-op transsexual. Mia’s life is sent into a tailspin when she receives a letter from an ex-girlfriend who’s dying from cancer. The letter reveals that Mia fathered a son eleven years ago. Faced with a difficult decision, Mia becomes the guardian to a new family, a choice that forces her to mix her killer instincts with her newly acquired maternal ones. Hit & Miss is the story of a lethal killer at the heart of a troubled family and how all of their lives are dramatically changed.

Others featured in the show include Peter Wight, Jonas Armstrong, Vincent Regan, Ben Crompton, Karla Crome, Reece Noi, Jorden Bennie and Roma Christensen.

The six episodes began running on DirecTV on July 11th and finished on August 15th.

What do you think? Are you sorry to hear there won’t be a second season of Hit & Miss? What would you liked to have seen happen?

Found it to be a fairly realistic view of pre-opt life/problems/needs/fears & rejection. Would really like to see it continue to evolve knowledge/info for who do not live in this life with it’s challenges. Well done!

From what I read, it was really commissioned as a one season mini-series.
Found this short interview with Chloe Sevigny, so do not lose hope yet.

Caught this on Netflix and was hooked. It was a nice surprise. Loved it. Can’t believe they left us with the cliff hanger and aren’t renewing. I can’t see why, it was so different and interesting.

Madelyn is right…This show has the potential of becoming another Dexter. I really hope the decision to end the series with only 1 season.

ZOMG!!! PLEASE bring this show back for at least a TV Movie to close up loose ends!!! I so very identify with Mia (The gender issues, not the assassin part, LOL) and would love to know how on earth she and the Family get out of the cliff hanger that the production company left us with!!
