What’s This TV Show About?
A Showtime thriller, Ill Behaviour stars Chris Geere, Tom Riley, Jessica Regan, Lizzy Caplan, Christina Chong, John Gordon Sinclair, Helena Day, Hemera Day, Tom Bell, and Anjana Vasan. The dark, British wish-fulfillment comedy from creator Sam Bain centers on Joel (Geere), a recently divorced underachiever. After receiving a £2 million divorce settlement, he reunites with his old schoolmates, Charlie (Riley) and Tess (Regan). When Joel and Tess learn Charlie has Hodgkins Lymphoma, but is refusing chemotherapy for it, they spring into action, despite their friend’s wishes.
The ratings for this series were very low. That’s not unusual for a Showtime series but Ill Behaviour originated on BBC Two. The BBC would have to commission a second series (i.e. season), first. Generally speaking, the Brits seem to be a bit more relaxed about ordering subsequent seasons of their TV programs. Compared to the way in which things are done on this side of the pond, it sometimes feels as though they view television as an art form rather than a business model. Fancy that! I’ll remove my tongue from my cheek and update this page with breaking developments. I’m not expecting a second season. Subscribe for free alerts on any Ill Behaviour cancellation or renewal news.
