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 (ChloĆ« 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.

    This was a superb show. If ever there was a chance to show the transgender issue to the public, this was it. I liked the show for many reasons but mostly because of the seriousness of the interactions of the plot and quality of the acting. Someone needs to step up and find out why this show was cancelled. Shame on the person who failed to pick up on how this show was leading edge for a variety of reasons.

    That’s just nuts, this was a great series and there were far too many things left open-ended to have been intentional to end after 6 episodes – those were cliff-hangers, not wrap-ups even in the most existential of flix! This was a great show, but if someone doesn’t get on the stick to keep it going the kids will be too old to pull it off…Shame.

    That really sucks!!! Why the heck would you bother creating such deep characters and way original script-writing just to tease viewers for 6 measly episodes???!!! I just discovered the series only 2 weeks ago. We miss it terribly since the awful night we discovered there was no more of it to see. Major, major screw-up to discontinue Hit & Miss. I don’t think the producers realized what they had on their hands. What a cast! What a theme!

    I just finished binge watching on Netflix. I miss the characters already. I realize it’s probably too late to bring back, but this show proves there are creative minds out there that can surely come up with something!
