E4 has cancelled Drifters after four series. The British sitcom will not return for Series 5, star Jessica Knappett revealed on Richard Herring’s Leicester Square Theatre Podcast:
“There’s no more Drifters. The people at Channel 4… they said they couldn’t make a decision about it until 2019, and I just think I haven’t got that amount of time to wait around.”
“I would like to do some more but it’s very turbulent at Channel 4 at the moment apparently.”
Drifters survived a total of 24 episodes before being caught by the cancellation reaper.
