‘In the Flesh’ won’t be back for Season 3

The BBC has confirmed that In the Flesh is not being recommissioned for a third season.

The official statement reads: “BBC Three is very proud of the two award-winning series of In the Flesh. However, given there is only budget for one original drama series a year on the channel it won’t be returning. We loved the show but have to make hard choices to bring new shows through and create room for emerging talent. Huge thanks to the BAFTA award-winning writer Dominic Mitchell and the superb cast.”

The second season concluded last June on BBC Three.

    This makes me sad and mad…We want to know what happens! Can’t BBC at least give us a wrap up episode!

    Is this because BBC 3 is going online only and won’t be showing any programmes longer than 30 minutes ?

    Two of my fave shows cancelled now. First Utopia now In The Flesh. So frustrating… Wonder how long it’ll be before America tries to remake this one too 😐
