Looks like The Interceptor is officially retired. According to Digital Spy, the BBC action series has been cancelled after only one season.
The thriller starred OT Fagbenle as a UK Customs agent who specializes in catching high-profile criminals. Jo Joyner, Robert Lonsdale, and Ewan Stewart also starred.
Fagbenle told Digital Spy that the cancellation came about due to staff changes at the BBC:
There won’t be any more Interceptor. I think there was a changing of the guard at the top of the BBC just when those kind of decisions were being made. I get people all the time on the internet – Twitter and all that – asking me about this very question, wanting some more. But you’ll have to get the DVD and watch that again and again, I’m afraid.”
What do you think? Did you watch season one of The Interceptor? Are you sad it’s been cancelled?
What great series, well acted excellent storyline and a star in the making – O.T Fagbenle, as the character, Ash. Shame the BBC are so out of touch with who their audiences are these days.
Let’s hope that we see O.T Fagbenle in another classic series, hopefully not via the BBC.
Can’t believe it’s not coming back. Loved the show….
