It appears that plans for season three of BBC’s Atlantis have sunk. The TV show, which airs on BBC America here in the States, has been cancelled after two seasons.
On Atlantis, a young man named Jason (Jack Donnelly) goes in search of his long-missing father and ends up on the shores of ancient Atlantis. He’s befriended by a pair of unlucky locals — former prize fighter Hercules (Mark Addy) and intellectual Pythagoras (Robert Emms) — as well as a revered Oracle (Juliet Stevenson). Others in the cast include Sarah Parish, Aiysha Hart, and Jemima Rooper.
BBC announced the show’s cancellation this way: “The final seven episodes of Atlantis will transmit on BBC One in spring. We would like to thank Urban Myth Films and all the cast and crew but the series will not be re-commissioned. We are very proud of both series but to keep increasing the range of BBC One drama we have to make difficult decisions to bring new shows through.”
Six of the 13 episodes of season two have aired so far in the US. No word on when they’ll be released here.
What do you think? Do you like the Atlantis TV show? Do you think that it should have been cancelled or renewed for a third season?
j’aimeriai vraiment voir la saison 3, j’ai vraiment besoin de cette saison
Yes continue season 3
I just found this show on Hulu. Before that I had no clue about it but, I’ll tell you this I binge watched it like there was no tomorrow. I was hooked. I’m disappointed there won’t be another season. The show was captivating. Not just that but it taught you a little more about the Greek and their gods. Could always do an “and 7 years later….” Comeback. Lol
Can’t believe the BBC ended season 2 like that. This is one of the few family friendly tv shows on nowadays that we can watch with the kids. Please make season 3!
Please continue with season 3. How could season 2 end that way? What a great series!
Yeah!! Absolutely right. It’s a great series I swear! Please continue the season 3…
This show is definitely one that needs to be saved by Netflix or another provider, just like Manifest. This show literally JUST got spiced up and set up for more, and its just cancelled, BRING IT BACK!!!
The show was getting very good and you just cancel it? Could you at least find a way to end it properly? Evil cannot win in this scenario.
It definitely shouldn’t have ended the way it did. They need to bring it back.
The final episode had a terrible, inconclusive ending. No one who watched the two seasons wanted to see Pasiphae regain the throne after her death! Very disappointing last episode where evil triumphs. There should be a third season or at least one last episode of season 2 to set things right.
The series should have properly finished. Not end when it got really interesting.
