One of the best new British shows to come out last year was the World War II drama Home Fires about the women of the Great Paxford WI and their efforts on the homefront during the War.
It’s a great show – dramatic (if a bit melodramatic sometimes) but we loved it. A lot of other people loved it too. It was renewed last year for a second series and that has just finished airing in the UK (it will air in the US later this year).
The bad news is that the show will not be renewed by ITV in the UK for a third series. Which sucks, not just because the show is good and we want more, but because the show ended on a huge cliffhanger that will no never be resolved.
There’s not much we can do other than complain loudly on social media and throw our support behind a petition making the rounds asking ITV to reconsider. Hopefully the show can be picked up by one of the streaming services, as has happened with other British shows that were cancelled.
Let’s make our voices heard!
