‘Atlantis’ axed by BBC One

Posted Filed under

Atlantis will not be returning for a third season.

The first half of Season 2 concluded last month with ‘The Grey Sisters’, but the show will not be recommissioned once the remaining episodes have aired later this year.

A BBC spokesperson told DS: “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.”

Starring Jack Donnelly as Jason, Mark Addy as Hercules and Robert Emms as Pythagoras, Atlantis launched in September 2013 as a replacement for Merlin.

Robert Emms tweeted: “Very sad. BBC have pulled A tlantis. Huge amounts of fun working with an amazing crew and cast. Thanks to all the very loyal fans!”

He added: “I’m excited to be moving onto new projects but will miss everyone from Atlantis so much!”
