The supernatural drama, which aired on BBC Americain the U.S., followed Kieren Walker (Luke Newberry), a dead teenager who is re-animated as a zombie and then reintroduced into society. The cast also included Emily Bevan, Emmett J. Scanlan, Wunmi Mosaku, and Ricky Tomlinson. The show only ran for two seasons before the BBC cancelled it in 2015.
On Twitter, Mitchell asked In the Flesh fans if they’d like a 90-minute special:
Would fans of #InTheFlesh like a 90 minute special?

The series creator explained the suggestion to Den of Geek:
The context of the tweet was to see if there would still be interest in concluding the show with a ninety-minute special. And if that were so, I’d start putting ideas to paper. The idea for the special had been forming in my head ever since BBC Three cancelled the show.”
I’ve always said I’d dearly like to write a conclusion to a world I’m so in love with and whose themes are even more pertinent than ever considering Brexit and Donald Trump’s win in the United States.”
What do you think? Have you seen In the Flesh? Would you watch a wrapup special?
