Fans of the racy British comedy Chewing Gum won’t be happy to hear this. A representative for the show’s creator and star Michaela Coel told The FADER the popular Netflix series will not return for a third season…that is, anytime soon.
“Michaela is not currently writing a third series of Chewing Gum as she is focusing on some other projects,” the rep said, “but is not closing the door to the possibility in the future.”
U.K. television Channel 4 confirmed the news in a statement. “Chewing Gum is a vibrant, hilarious and unique comedy of which we are incredibly proud. Though there currently aren’t any plans for a third series, we hope to work with the hugely talented Michaela Coel again soon.”
The statements follow a report in Broadcast which claimed that Coel had told Channel 4 she had “reached a creative peak” with Chewing Gum.
“It’s bittersweet but it’s always been part of what we do here,” she told the publication. “We establish people and then there’s a point where they have to move on.”
