ITV has cancelled Scott & Bailey after five series (seasons).
The broadcaster has decided not to renew the police drama for Series 6, per RadioTimes:
“It’s a mutually agreed decision by all parties,” the broadcaster told RadioTimes.com of the series end, noting that the drama has always been commissioned one series at a time. Both actresses have mentioned in recent interviews that they thought this would be their last outing as characters Rachel Bailey and Janet Scott. “We totally respect that decision,” a spokesperson for ITV added.
