Atlantis will not return for third series on BBC One

Atlantis will not return for a third series.

The fantasy drama will not be re-commissioned once the current run has finished airing, Digital Spy has learned.

Speaking exclusively to DS, a BBC spokesperson said: "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."

The second series of Atlantis is comprised of 13 episodes - the first six aired late last year before the show went on hiatus, while an exact date for the final seven is yet to be confirmed.

The series, inspired by ancient Greek myths, starred Jack Donnelly as Jason, Mark Addy as Hercules and Robert Emms as Pythagoras. »
