BBC2 sitcom Hebburn will not be returning for a third series, creator Jason Cook has revealed.
BBC2’s Tyneside sitcom Hebburn has come to an end after the creator Jason Cook has taken to Twitter thanking the cast and crew for their hard work.
Cook, who also plays Ramsey on the show, said “Just so everyone knows, the BBC will not be renewing Hebburn for a third series,” he wrote. “We’ve had such a great time making series 1 and 2 and I’d like to thank the BBC for allowing us to do this. The team that made Hebburn were so committed to it and those both in front of and behind the camera were what made Hebburn so special.”
The sitcom has aired two series and two Christmas Specials and starred Chris Ramsay as a young lad who was forced to take his new wife (Kimberley Nixon) back to the titular Tyneside town in order to care for his parents (Gina McKee and Jim ‘Vic Reeves’ Moir).
Cook spoke of his experience on the show saying, “It was such an honour to be able to put my little hometown on TV and to show the country and little bit of Tyneside with some of the best actors I could ever have dreamed of. The response from fans all over the world has been overwhelming with Hebburn being shown in Australia, Canada, America and all over Europe. But now we have to move on to new projects and I’m looking forward to doing more stuff with the Hebburn team as soon as possible!”
