‘The Honourable Woman’ won’t return for Series 2

Posted Filed under

The Honourable Woman writer Hugo Blick has revealed that BBC Two’s political thriller will not continue for a second series.

Currently airing at 9pm on Thursday nights on BBC Two, the eight-part series is set against the present day backdrop of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The cast includes Maggie Gyllenhaal (The Dark Knight), Andrew Buchan (Broadchurch), Stephen Rea (The Shadow Line), Lindsay Duncan (The Hollow Crown) and Katherine Parkinson (The IT Crowd).

Speaking at the TCA summer press tour, Blick commented: “Part of the trust we offer the audience is that it’s this story [and only this story]. We’re not trying to wink and say ‘Maybe there’s another one.'”

He explained: “It’s got something profoundly engaging to say… because the conclusion it takes is final.”

The Honourable Woman begins in the US on SundanceTV next week.
