Scott & Bailey is coming to a close after five seasons, and actress Suranne Jones tells RadioTimes that she knew it was time for the police drama to end, despite being enticed by one final season:
We knew we were saying goodbye, so now that it’s out there, well, it’s good I think. It’s good to move on”
“We said we weren’t going to do another one last series, and then when ITV said, ‘Would you like to do another one?’, we kind of thought [why not], because there’s been quite a break between the last one and this one. I was pregnant so I knew that I couldn’t do more than three episodes,” she continued.
“And then I said, ‘Oh I’d quite like to produce as well,’ so they said yes come along and do that. So the whole thing was a goodbye in a sense: we were going to do a short thing, I was going to produce, and be properly on the team, because I’ve always put my nose in.”
Stay tuned in the event that Scott & Bailey is ever revived for Series 6…
