There won’t be a third season of =In the Flesh. The drama, which aired on BBC America here in the States, has been cancelled after two seasons and just nine episodes. The last episode aired in June 2014.
The reason for the cancellation? Economics. Here’s the official statement from BBC Three in the UK:
BBC Three is very proud of the two award-winning series of In the Flesh. However, given there is only budget for one original drama series a year on the channel it won’t be returning.
We loved the show but have to make hard choices to bring new shows through and create room for emerging talent. Huge thanks to the BAFTA award-winning writer Dominic Mitchell and the superb cast.
Mitchell responded to the news on Twitter and wrote, “Sad news today. I’d like to thank the BBC, the incredible cast & crew and the amazing fans for making & supporting #InTheFlesh”
