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.

    This was a really good show. The acting and the writing were really well done. I can’t believe that it won’t be coming back. Is there any way to change their minds? :)

    I really hated to hear the show won’t continue with a second season , I really do hope there is enough positive response that they decide to go forward with season two

    Really?! Get me hooked on a great show then not renew it? I loved it. Chloe was amazing as the other actors. Can’t just leave us hanging line that.

    I just watch all six shows of this on Netflix and am very impressed. Wish there was more but I am sadly getting used to this type of entertaining, well produced and acted videos that are canceled after a short run.

    Sterling writing, acting, direction; so naturally it’s producers opted to end it — particularly when there is so, so much TV of better quality. I GIVE UP!

    Its par for the suites that think they are doing great work within Network television but it’s just another prime example of how there are a lot of none creative people within the entertainment industry that think about money first, and the audience that makes it possible for them to have a job last.
    It’s just how the entertainment business works unfortunately; I think however if Netflix was able to buy a several season s of this show, the can fan base would grow to be point, where this show could because very completive with a lot of mainstream American dramas. And could even move over to other TV mediums such as HBO, Showtime, Starz to say a few.

    It is a compelling show and really needs to continue. It would be a shame if they just stop it here.

    It’s hard to believe a season would end with such a cliff hanger and have no intention of picking up for another season….it’ s just cruel. I really enjoyed it and naturally assumed that it would keep going. What a disappointment!

    I just finished this series on Netflix. Definitely needs a season 2. I really enjoyed the storyline and began to have a good attraction to the characters. Hopefully some bigwig will see the quality in this program and sign on for a new season.

    I started to watch the show because of Jonas Armstrong , I love his work. Is a little bit strong concerning the scenes where she is naked but is interesting. I would like to see another season where she can have the surgery and end with Ben. Something like that.
