ITV ‘rest’ Law & Order UK

by | Jun 5, 2014 | All, TV News

ITV have announced plans to ‘rest’ Law & Order UK after Bradley Walsh has decided to leave the long-running crime drama.

The final episode of series 8 of Law & Order: UK scheduled for Wednesday 11 June (9pm on ITV) will be the last to be transmitted for the foreseeable future, ITV and producers Kudos have said.

“There may well come a time when we re-visit Law & Order: UK,” said ITV’s Director of Drama Commissioning Steve November.  “For the moment we’ll be resting the series whilst we continue to refresh our drama slate,” he added. 

The move coincides with Bradley Walsh’s decision to depart the successful crime drama to pursue other projects, both in drama and entertainment.

Ronnie Brooks is one of my best friends,” said Bradley.  “It’s been an absolute pleasure to inhabit Ronnie’s Mac for as long as I have.  Eight series is a wonderful achievement for everyone involved in the production. This has been one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make.  I hope one day to revisit him, but for now I’d like the opportunity to pursue other drama projects which ITV are developing,” he added.  

The Final episode of the series was postponed as its plotline was eerily similar to a recent high profile news story. ITV will now broadcast the final episode at 9.00pm on Wednesday 11th June on ITV.
