Doctor Who spinoff Class has been cancelled after one season, according to reports.
Per The Mirror, low ratings have put paid to the show’s chances of Season 2:
Ratings were so low, both online and for the BBC1 repeat, it now looks like school’s out forever.
Class launched on BBC iPlayer in October, but despite Peter Capaldi appearing as the Time Lord in the first episode, got just 660,000 views.
Not one of the eight episodes made it into the top 50 weekly shows viewed on-demand. The series also fared badly in the late-night BBC1 repeats, where it was aired in four double bills.
A show source said: “Class hasn’t been the success the BBC were hoping for.”
The cancellation comes ahead of the show’s April 15 US launch on BBC America.
Is the Beeb bluffing or has Class been axed as reported? Stay tuned for further updates.
