Overnight, Class has been officially cancelled by the BBC.
This is confirmation from the BBC, after Patrick Ness posted in June that he would not be writing any more episodes.
The BBC3 controller, Damian Kavanagh has been quoted as saying:
“No, [we’re not bringing it back]. There was nothing wrong with it – I thought Patrick did a great job, he explored an amazing world.
In honesty, it just didn’t really land for us on BBC Three. Things sometimes don’t, and I’ve got to make decisions about what we’re going to do from a drama point of view.
“There’s always times when you do something and you have to decide that it’s not going to come back. Class is just one of those things.”
Ness, added on Twitter
“I’m not an unopinionated man, but all I’ll say re the Class news is how proud I am of that show & how lucky I am to have had the opportunity
What a great experience to make it. And SUCH a great cast. And thank you for all the love for it, too! Would that things were different…”
