Rumour: Class cancelled after one series?

A new tabloid report from the Mirror suggests that the BBC has decided to cancel Class after one series.

The Doctor Who spin off premiered online on BBC Three last year before debuting on BBC One in January. The article in question focuses on its low ratings, as it failed to make the Top 50 on iPlayer throughout its initial run, while its TV figures dropped from 1 million to just 300,000.

Its writer and creator, Patrick Ness, has since taken to his Twitter to falsify the claim.

Fans will just have to wait and see what the future of Coal Hill holds, but it’s likely that an announcement won’t be made until after it’s aired in the US. It will debut on BBC America straight after the first episode of Series 10 of Doctor Who on Saturday 15th April 2017.

    It wouldn’t surprise me if this turned out to be true as the show really doesn’t have mass recognition or popularity as far as I can tell but I really hope it does get a second season, it is a fantastic show, a worthy add on to the Doctor Who mythos and it would be a shame for it to end so soon, on a cliff-hanger no less!

    If it has been cancelled, I won’t lie and say I didn’t like it. There were moments that I liked, the final episode was exciting and the series ended on a shocking cliffhanger, but can I say I liked Class as much as I liked Torchwood Series 1 and 2?

    Unfortunately not and that was seen in my disinterest in the DVD, where I have rewatched Torchood quite a few times. It was good to have something to watch in a year without Doctor Who, but if Class has been cancelled, I can’t say I’m that upset about it.

    That is a real shame. I think it showed a lot of promise and enjoyed some of the episodes. The characters could really have been developed in a second series too. TV channels are more interested in nurturing “reality” and “let’s find yet another boyband” type TV rather than good quality, thought provoking, drama. Shame. I hope the cast and crew of ‘Class’ know that some of us appreciated their work.

    Oh good. That was terrible.
