Get your sinking puns at the ready, Atlantis will not be returning after the end of series two…
While Wizards Vs. Aliens may return eventually though, it seems that Atlantis is well and truly cancelled. A BBC spokesperson told Digital Spy that “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,” they added. The show was devised by Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy (who used to helm Merlin), alongside Misfits’ creator Howard Overman. These chaps must be feeling particularly unlucky at the moment, but we look forward to »
Richard Wilson has told Digital Spy that the BBC have talked to him about starring in a sitcom.
Wilson told DS: "I wouldn't mind considering another sitcom. The BBC have talked about me coming back to do something, but I don't know whether that will happen.
Asked if he planned to present more factual television, Wilson replied: "No, no. I can still consider myself an active actor, »
Asked by Digital Spy whether he missed the show, Wilson replied: "No, no. It was too hectic.
"Merlin was made in France and Wales, and I was an associate director [of New Sheffield Theatres] in Sheffield and I live in London, so I was running between Sheffield, London, France and Cardiff which was a wee bit hectic.
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.
Since then, we've had plenty of shows that focus on the lives of a group of youths, from Skins to Misfits to Made in Chelsea. But there was one show that arguably kickstarted the modern teen drama without getting the kudos it deserves, and that show was As If.
Last year marked the 10th anniversary since the series came to an end, and so Digital Spy decided to look back on the show and find out what happened to some of its main cast members.
As If launched on January 22, 2001 on Channel 4 in the midweek early evening slot, and was later repeated on Sunday afternoons on T4. From series two onwards, it stayed as a T4 staple, but maintained its young adult themes, running for »
The Musketeers' winning streak continues this week, but is the supporting cast starting to eclipse the Musketeers themselves?
This review contains spoilers.
2.3 The Good Traitor
Last week’s An Ordinary Man brought excitement and danger through some strong writing and performances, and could certainly be considered up there with the best the series has had to offer. It was a good example of how a Musketeers’ story can be told that reflects the excitement and adventure of the source material but in a manner that modern audiences would enjoy – exactly what we’ve been wanting from this adaptation. The question was of course – is this a one-off? Have they peaked early ? Well, in The Good Traitor the cast and writers have done an excellent job of picking up where An Ordinary Man left off – certainly being the equal in writing, performance and direction.
On the surface, there is a »
