The Paradise: Cancelled After Two Seasons

The Paradise canceled, no season threeWhile Mr. Selfridge has supposedly been renewed, BBC1 has pulled the plug on The Paradise. There won’t be a third season for the period drama.

The Paradise revolves around the people who work and shop at the first English department store. Set in 1875, castmembers have included Emun Elliott, Joanna Vanderham, Elaine Cassidy, Sarah Lancashire, Matthew McNulty, Peter Wight, David Hayman, Stephen Wight, Sonya Cassidy, Ruby Bentall, Finn Burridge, and Patrick Malahide.

Of the cancellation, a BBC spokesperson said, “We are incredibly proud to have made two successful series of period drama The Paradise for BBC1. However, in order to make room for new dramas to come through, The Paradise won’t be returning.”

The show airs on PBS here in the US and only the first season has been shown. That ended in November and there’s been no word of airing the second season yet.

What do you think? Have you seen The Paradise? Would you watch season two? Are you sorry it’s been cancelled?

I love The Paradise! The characters, the actors portraying them, notably, Emun Elliott and Joanna Vonderham are delightful. Mr. Selfridge pales in comparison. I was looking forward to the return of this show. I love BBC programming but am hesitant to become attached to a series due to the lack of continuity. Jeremy Piven does not hold a candle to Emun Elliott’s multi-faceted, elegant performance as John Moray. I am deeply disappointed.

I love the show. I didn’t like Mr. Selfridge! Paradise was delightful. Great love story. I would love to see Season 2. Please PBS make that possible here in America. I do love Downton and Call of the Midwife.

I am shocked the decision was made not to bring back The Paradise. It was superbly written, had an excellent cast and completely outshines the other shows on PBS. This program was bumped to “make room” for other shows? Mr. Selfridge doesn’t even compare. Other than Downton Abby, this was the only other PBS show that captures such attention of many. Please bring it back.
