Sky calls time on The Lazarus Project

Posted Filed under

The show won’t be resurrected for a third series. 

Despite its recent BAFTA Cymru win and a TV BAFTA nomination for the show’s star Paapa Essiedu, Sky won’t be commissioning a third run of The Lazarus Project.

The sci-fi thriller, from writer Joe Barton (Giri/Haji), followed the exploits of an agency with the ability to turn back time and a mission to avert extinction level threats to mankind.

The series’ impressive ensemble cast included Anjli Mohindra, Charly Clive, Vinette Robinson, Rudi Dharmalingam, Caroline Quentin and Tom Burke

Confirming the cancellation news, a Sky spokesperson said:

“The Lazarus Project has brought audiences jaw-dropping action and time-bending storylines across two seasons, and we are incredibly proud of this BAFTA-winning series.

“Whilst we won’t be commissioning another season, we would like to thank the incredible team who made this show possible.”

Unfortunately, the second series ended on a killer temporal cliffhanger which will now go unresolved.

You can still find Series 1 and 2 of The Lazarus Project on Sky Go and NOW.
