London Spy premieres on BBC America on January 21st.
Speaking at the TCA winter press tour, Rob Smith confirmed that the spy series will be limited to five episodes. The series stars Ben Whishaw as Danny, a London party boy who becomes involved in romantic relationship with Alex (Edward Holcroft), a mysterious stranger who Danny later discovers works for the British intelligence agency MI6.
Rob Smith said that extending the series to more episodes would lose “the clarity of that journey” in the first season. Supposedly, the cable channel has yet to make a decision.
