Thirteen Series 2 has been ruled out.
Ahead of its first season finale, writer Marnie Dickens has revealed that there wont be a second series of Thirteen, telling RadioTimes that the drama was always envisaged as a “very finite story” with the promise of closure:
“I did imagine this as a very finite story in terms of Ivy’s story and her family because hopefully, as you watch it all, by episode five it pays off.”
Dickens notes that while she warmed to the idea of continuing the story into Series 2, she ultimately sees Thirteen as a one-and-done:
“But of course when you spend all your time with those characters and you are lucky to get incredible people like Jodie involved you do feel it would be nice to go back and write more.”
“I don’t think I will [do a second series], no. All I want is that people watch and enjoy series one, that’s enough for me.”
Of course, should things change, we’ll keep you posted.
