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?

So sorry to read that two seasons is all we get of this wonderful show.
I was so hoping to search and find that the third season was forthcoming.

This petition is Closed. And we who has written on this petition have no idea if it is submitted to the BBC, unfortunately. It had over 11,000 signatures but what good is s that if it does not get sent off to the BBC. Sad very sad because I really liked this series very much.

My favorite show along with Call the Midwife. Downton Abbey, Homeland, Game of Thrones and Mr Selfridge come in right behind those two.
