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?

    It is very annoying BBC to cancel Paradise Season 3. It left no room to develop the characters further. Another season was cancelled for another series I was watching a few years back. It makes a person not want to start watching any BBC series in the future in fear of cancellation!!!

    I really liked watching The Paradise . I was wishing they would continue it for a third season. I do hope they reconsider saving this show. I will miss all the characters and it seemed the story was just getting started .

    Please bring this show back! I haven’t been able to stop watching it on Netflix. I never even knew about it. This has become my new obsession!
