It was announced this week that the BBC/Cinemax co-production will not be returning to BBC One, following disappointing ratings.
Series 1 concludes on BBC One next Thursday.
Discussing the final episode exclusively with CultBox, the show’s creator and lead writer, Frank Spotnitz, revealed: “Well, it’s not a cliffhanger because I don’t know whether there’ll be a second series at this point. You have to design it for both possibilities. If this is the end then it’s a great ride and that was a really satisfying ending, but if it’s not the end then there’s plenty more ground to cover in future series.”
It has been reported that Hunted may continue on HBO’s Cinemax in the US, despite the BBC not a commissioning second series.
Spotnitz teased: “…from doing The X-Files all those years I’m very good at answering one question and asking three others! So that’s kind of what happens in these first episodes. I think hopefully it’s a very satisfying emotional journey and you feel you’ve got a lot of answers by the end of the eighth hour, but there’s certainly a lot of room to go forward if the audience are so inclined.”
