Cancelled ITV series The Halcyon is not dying quietly. Following its brutal Season 2 axing last week, producers of the WWII drama are looking for a new home to continue the story that was planned to run 5 seasons — but the clock is ticking, producer Chris Croucher warns RadioTimes:
“Andy Harries, [CEO] at Left Bank hopes that there might be somewhere else that we could go. Nothing is confirmed at the moment. I believe he is trying.
It’s difficult with timeframes, because actually our option period on the actors is about to run out, and we have our beautiful hotel standing in West London, and every week that’s costing us and that adds up.
So I think a decision would need to be made very quickly.”
The Halcyon lost its race against the reaper, can it win the race against TIME for a surprise Season 2 revival, or are the halcyon days most definitely over? Stay tuned…
