We were big fans of Sky 1’s end of the world comedy/drama You, Me and the Apocalypse and after the cliffhanger ending we were looking forward to seeing where next season would have went, given that the world, you know, ended.
However, it seems that Sky 1 have pulled the plug on the show.
According to Premier Date: “Unfortunately for the fans, the British/American sci-fi dramedy You, Me and the Apocalypse was canceled in a joint decision by Sky1 and NBC. The only series that aired opened to over 5 million viewers and lost 2 million over the course of the season. In spite of the positive reviews, excellent scores on review aggregator websites and an audience eagerly awaiting the post-apocalyptic continuation of the story following the season one finale where the meteor hits the Earth, the series will not be picked up for renewal.”
Radio Times reported that Sky 1 have told them: “A story with the end of the world at its heart was always going to be hard to bring back and has reached its natural conclusion,” the broadcaster told RadioTimes.com.
“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”.
We’re upset that we’ll not find out what happened to the characters in the bunker but we guess… the world DID end.
What do a rebellious priest, a white supremacist, a mediocre bank manager, a cyber terrorist and an American general have in common? That’s right, a comet that is headed for Earth and is about to destroy all mankind. In this series, they all try to make it to a bunker beneath the English suburb of Slough, thus, causing a hilarious and unexpected chain of events.
