Intruders: Cancelled by BBC America, No Season Two

27 February 2015 4:49 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

As suspected, the Intruders TV show has been cancelled after one season of eight episodes. BBC America and BBC Two have decided not to order a second season.

On Intruders, a former Lapd detective (John Simm) investigates strange occurences which lead him to a secret society whose members seek immortality by taking over the bodies of others. The rest of the cast includes Mira Sorvino, Tory Kittles, James Frain, and Millie Brown.

Executive producer Glen Morgan broke the news of the cancellation on Twitter and wrote, "Well, Reverti, this life is over. Intruders will live only in 8 episodes. We can't thank those that supported us enough... #Intruders such an intelligent audience willing to be challenged and face tough questions. Hope we will all be triggered in 9 years. What goes around, comes around. #Intruders. Thank you! 9!"

27 February 2015 2:41 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The BBC has called time on the John Simm-headlined Intruders, after eight episodes...

Sad news today for fans of the BBC America/BBC Two co-production Intruders: there's not going to be a season two.

The show, which starred John Simm and Mira Sorvino, had completed its first season run of eight episodes. Based on the novel The Intruders by Michael Marshall Smith, there were plans for more episodes, but they've come to nought.

The news of the show's demise was Tweeted by its showrunner and lead writer, Glen Morgan....

Well, Reverti, this life is over. Intruders will live only in 8 episodes. We can't thank those that supported us enough... (more)

Glen Morgan (@GlenMrgn) February 27, 2015

Season one of the show didn't set ratings alight in either the UK or the Us, and its dark subject matter always meant it was facing an uphill battle. It's available on DVD now. »

Intruders axed: No second season for John Simm's BBC America series

27 February 2015 1:15 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Intruders has been cancelled by the BBC.

Showrunner Glen Morgan confirmed that the John Simm series "will live only in eight episodes" after failing to impress the broadcaster with its performance.

The BBC America and BBC Two co-production stars Simm as Whelan, who has escaped a dark, violent past for a quiet life in the Pacific Northwest.

Morgan tweeted: "Well, Reverti, this life is over. Intruders will live only in 8 episodes. We can't thank those that supported us enough..."

Meanwhile, author Michael Marshall Smith - who wrote the book the series was adapted from - praised Morgan and his team for the 'brilliant' job they did on the series.

He wrote: "It was never a given there would be more - though we did discuss ideas for future arcs - and for a variety of reasons the first season had to out-perform the norm in order to continue. Unfortunately it did not. »
