‘Doctor Who’ Spin-Off ‘Class’ Officially Cancelled By The BBC
This doesn’t come as a great surprise, but the BBC have officially confirmed ‘Class‘ is out for the ‘Doctor Who’ spin-off.
The news of Class’s cancellation had largely been expected after the shows creator, Patrick Ness, announced he would be walking away from the series back in June.
The cancellation was confirmed today by BBC Three controller Damian Kavanagh who said at a Broadcasting Press Guild event today “I thought Patrick did a great job, he explored an amazing world. In honesty, it just didn’t really land for us on BBC Three. Things sometimes don’t, and I’ve got to make decisions about what we’re going to do from a drama point of view.” He continues “There’s always times when you do something and you have to decide that it’s not going to come back. ‘Class’ is just one of those things.”
Speaking on Twitter about the official cancellation, Ness added “I’m not an unopinionated man, but all I’ll say re the Class news is how proud I am of that show & how lucky I am to have had the opportunity. What a great experience to make it. And SUCH a great cast. And thank you for all the love for it, too! Would that things were different…”
Whilst we’re sorry to see ‘Class’ go, I do want to wish all the best to the lovely cast, who we’ve interviewed and chatted with over the past year at various Comic Cons. Such a nice bunch of people and we’re looking forward to seeing what you get up to next!
