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?

    So we now know a trans can be real character… A hero, a villain….
    We know the queerness of life is just a part of it all.
    We know danger is part of all our choices. This shows the courage of humans being flawed and fabulous….
    Bring it back!
    Mia is the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Nikita, my crazy girl friends, my alter ego, an extraordinary character. Each one of the characters has depth that comes from a gifted moment in story telling…..
    Que viva Mia!

    The show was dark, fascinating, and incredibly well written and well acted all around. The musical choices were also great. It is worthy of being mentioned in the same breath as shows like The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, and Sons of Anarchy. A show like this deserves some kind of resolution that would come from another short season. Treat it with the vision of a mini-series but don’t let this one rot on the vine.

    Just finished season 1 on Netflix only to find out there is no 2 season. The plot is as good as the one on the show Dexter. That show has ran for 6 seasons now. Please give the second season a chance. The characters in the Hit and Miss have depth and you are drawn into the story. I would like to find out what happens in the next show.

    Not that my opinion will ever see the light of day, but I think it was cancelled because how heartwarming (even though she is an assassin) a transsexual could appear. And she was influential with the children.
    My opinion is that there was fear by wealthy religious bigots in the media that this genre might be accepted and they put the kibosh on this series.
    The series was very well done. As other people said very well acted, great story line. Well filmed, very good cinematography and the story fell right into place.
    Why would someone write only one season? Doesn’t make sense.

      I agree with you whole heartedly. the way the episode ends leaves it open for a second season nothing is resolved yet with the children or the dragon. what happens. this should have had many seasons. I loved it and it should come back.

    There is no way that this was intended to be a series complete without a second season. It ends with a stand-off. What an absurd claim. Just plain ridiculous, and such a ridiculous claim, it’s downright insulting. This show was engaging in the same way as DEXTER or BREAKING BAD, engrossing drama all the way.

    “According to Sky Atlantic’s official statement, they only planned for the UK TV series to run for just one season anyway.”

    Right, and that’s why they ended the season with a cliffhanger.

    but they keep renewing drivel, that you can miss and not even know it. this is stupid.
    the scenery, and cast were so good. loved the offbeat reality of life.

    I love this show. Please bring it back! I don’t understand why it would be cancelled. The acting is excellent. It should get picked up by HBO, Showtime, or Starz, but it should not be cancelled!!!!
    It really ticks me off that producers or critics or whomever decides these things make the decisions without asking the public what it thinks. Big mistake cancelling this one!!

    Yes, I am very sorry they cancelled the show. There were two questions left unanswered like did the son shoot the gangster? If the show was suppose to last for one season, you would have thought the series finale would have been written so the viewers could have some closure.

    Noooooo… Pleaaaaaaase? you can’t cancel a season 2? This serie is brilliant – the rythm so peculiar and everything is so weird – Chloe S. such a beautiful androgyn that you can’t do that?
    It is such an original serie that it is a shame to not make a season 2. I can’t believe that you let it down now.

  11. Nia says

    This was a GREAT show! I have been checking to see when season 2 would start, and I’m disappointed to see it is not. Please reconsider your decision and give us more if Hit & Miss!!!!
