BBC Two has banished Banished, cancelling the penal drama after only one season.
Banished, the story of survival set in the stark historical reality of the founding of the penal colony in Australia in 1788, will not move forward into Season 2, actor Russell Tovey has revealed.
Writing on Twitter, he confirmed:
“The history of Australia will have to tell it’s story without us – #banished on @BBCTwo has ended it’s adventure.. Sad day for drama”
