It’s the end of the world. Sky and NBC have cancelled You, Me and the Apocalypse after just one season.
The co-produced sci-fi comedy drama will not continue into Season 2, RadioTimes.com confirms.
Despite the first season ending on a cliffhanger with creative plans for Season 2, the UK and US companies have opted not to continue the story:
“The news that a comet was on a unavoidable collision course towards earth triggered a joyous, fun, 34 day dramatic countdown to the end of the world in You, Me and the Apocalypse. Our cast of characters did things they never believed they would do and gave us a show that was loved by critics and the audience alike.
“We thank the entire creative team, cast and everyone working at Working Title Television and NBCUniversal International Studios”.
You, Me and the Apocalypse‘s demise comes despite Sky voicing early optimism for the series, which, ultimately, didn’t deliver big enough ratings to survive the Cancellation Reaper.
Stay tuned to find out whether You, Me and the Apocalypse is one day resurrected for Season 2…
Argh! get hooked on a show and then no season 2… Just like Backstrom – was an awesome show, then cancelled. Hard to find a good series to follow because the good ones keep getting cancelled so the stupid lame ones can go on for season after season.
Loved the show, shouldnt have killed off Rob Lowe’s character tho! Hate that it was cancelled. I agree with Sheli, Backstrom was a good show, cannot believe it got cancelled either!
Wasn’t this kind of a given.. I mean the world blew up. This was a stellar one-season show with a great cast. I really have hated to see them all just living daily lives in the bunker. How mind0numbingly boring that would have been. Get in, get out, and leave ’em wanting more.
True. However, I would like to know if the good twin gets into the bunker OR if the survivors are stuck with the evil twin OR if the good twin was actually the evil twin all along … A one off show to wrap things up would be nice. How about it SKY? Just one episode to wrap it all up. ITV did it for Vicious.
That’s what I wanted to know! Will twin get in bunker? I think that the destruction would not have been as bad as thought and it would have been life afterwards. (I didn’t like Rob Lowe killed off- would have like to see him ive hapily ever after)

Wow. Why bother even putting the show on if even after good viewing numbers you cancel. Hope at least a book or something comes out of it so the suspense won’t drive me crazy !!!
No surprise, i gave up on it after 4 episodes, a really poor show.
Rick Rod says
goddammit! I am so tired of good shows getting you hooked and ending with a cliffhanger! It makes you not want to give anything a try. Sometimes they stop a show before season end and you have to wait for the dvd’s to see how it ended. That is irritating but ending on a cliffhanger? inexcusable
I was just saying the same thing to myself seeing all the cancellations and reading the reviews. What is going on with TV these days. Very few god programs stay on for more than couple seasons. I fear the rating system must be outdated and not giving the networks proper info. Blacksails, Di Vinci’s Demons, The Grinder, and now You, me and the Apocalypse and many other good shows cancelled without closure. Maybe a class action lawsuit is in order for the mental trauma (lol). Seriously I’m wondering if the rating system is no longer accurate – so many people are watching shows from download sites and the like. So many bad shows go on season after season probably because they cost very little to produce. I’m going to go back to reading books – the stories are complete and I’ll stimulate my imagination.
suppose to be good not god programs
noooooooo, I need more!!!
The show got great reviews and good ratings so why not try another time slot?

So sick of good shows being cancelled.
Sad that it’s been cancelled but form what I’ve gathered it was supposed to be a single season show anyways. It’s just a shame that entertaining shows like this & the Muppets get cancelled or are on the bubble yet shit like The Kardashians keeps going !!
I agree Tim. Have you seen the film ‘Idiocracy’? Watch it and you’ll understand why shows like The Kardashians, Toddlers in Tiaras, The Bachelor(ette), The Real What-evers, etc…keep going, but smart shows get cancelled. There are FAR more stupid people watching mind-numbingly stupid shows for the brain-dead who can no longer follow any kind of plot line. That’s why we (the people with brains that function) can’t have smart shows (there are a few exceptions, very few) last more than a season or get cancelled with no resolution 2 or more seasons in. It should be a law that any show that airs more than 8 episodes MUST shoot a series finale if they want to cancel it. I don’t care what they do. They can kill the whole cast in a natural disaster after the unanswered questions ARE answered. Anything will do be it funny or horrific. Just don’t keep those of us who have invested time and money in it hanging. That’s BS!

holly maffia says
wow can’t believe it was really a good show!
I Cannot believe this WILL not be renewed!?!?! It was fantastic!?!?! Is NBC losing it mind!!??!?
WOW this is cancelled. WHY? Its a great show and so many story lines for more seasons. Sad
Really? How disappointing ! NBC finally gets something interesting and then just drops it. Not a good move.
Wow… Really hate that it’s over. Loved it. Just got done watching the cliffhanger. I bet the “Son of God” would have found a way in and there would be a lot of ways to keep the action going inside that bunker!! NO!!! Bring it back!!
Bring it BACK, please. Very good show. So much better than reality crap!!!! I loved it.
This should have been renewed!! Great actors/characters/storylines .
It’s a fun show about doomsday. I guess fake boring reality shows win again. It really is the Apocalypse !!!!
This was such a smart, funny show. So sad that crap shows continue on and good tv gets the ax.
Booooooooooo! This show was fantastic. So refreshingly different from the rest. It should have continued. Lame.
I really liked that show. Hopefully they change their minds.
It was only a limited series, lauded that at the start. was not intended to be a continuing series. how could you after the world ended at end of last episode?
Totally agree with the “continue this show” comments! NBC, are you listening???
I don’t agree that the planet was completely destroyed. There might have been a lucky remnant left on the surface, including Jamie. I know that cannot have been the end of him.
Please NBC/Sky1, listen to your viewers!

I am disgusted that there will be no season 2. Why bother watching anything new? I haven’t watched Survivor or DWTS or any of the other reality shows since season one. The moron parade is not for me. But I’m assuming it’s cheap. As for Castle, when I read they couldn’t pay Stanic equal pay the male lead and would eliminate her for season 9, I stopped watching from that day on.She worked hard and frankly Castle has put on a good 30 pounds or more. You cut the wrong one. The network the doesn’t value women doesn’t value me.
Robin Weidner says
ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME. NO NO NO NO. I am so sick of NETWORKS CANCELING SHOWS THAT ARE ACTUALLY GOOD. Here we finally get to the damn bomb shelter. and NOW WE DONT KNOW WHAT HAPPENS> I FOR ONE AM REALLY PISSED OFF. THIS SHOW WAS BY FAR one of the best and original shows out there. and you take it off the air. WELL THATS JUST FLIPPEN GREAT. OOOO MY GOD IAM ACTUALLY PISSED OFF. WHAT THE HELL????
GREAT SHOW BUT KILLING OFF THE PRIEST TO END THE SERIES WOW WHAT A WAY OUT O
I know way too many people who loved this show for there to be a legitimate reason for it to be cancelled. Seriously people…what the heck were you thinking? This is such an awesome show!!! What is wrong with you guys???
Rose Duran says
I can believe another good show canceled what wrong with you NBC, you have good shows running and then you cancel the good one and keep the bad one. I am so sick of all these different channels just cancelling good show and just keep the really bad ones, my be the people should just cancel watching all these bad channel like NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox.
