Car Share has reached a dead end. The BBC sitcom has been cancelled after two series/seasons.
Star Peter Kay told BBC Radio Manchester that there wont be a Car Shares Series 3 or Christmas special, claiming that the decision to end the series was a creative one:
“There’s not going to be a series three so it won’t ever happen. You’ve got to get out while the going’s good. No Christmas special, no.”
Adding more nails to the coffin, Kay continued:
“I am absolutely delighted and overwhelmed by everybody’s support and the fact that everyone’s loved it so much has been wonderful for everyone who’s made it, but you’re better quitting while you’re ahead.
There’s only so much you can do in a car and the last thing you want to do is ruin it because I think it’s a lovely thing.
It’s been wonderful working with Sian, who’s one of my closest friends in the world. We have a good laugh but I think sometimes you’ve got to just leave things.
“You need good ideas – that’s the problem. You need good strong stories. A lot of series tend to go on for one series too many, especially with comedies, and I think people say ‘ooh, it’s gone off, that’.
