ITV has cancelled The Halcyon after one series/season, having decided not to move forward with Season 2 of the period drama, despite the cliffhanger ending.
In a statement, the broadcaster said of the decision to wield the axe:
“ITV regularly considers the range of dramas we commission to ensure the right balance and breadth, together with the best mix of returning series and new dramas.
“It does mean on occasions we have to take tough decisions, and not all drama can be recommissioned. We are really pleased so many people enjoyed The Halcyon and we are proud of what the series achieved. We’d like to thank The Halcyon production team and actors and everyone at Left Bank Pictures for their hard work.”
