Sadly the brilliant dark comedy, penned and performed by former League of Gentlemen stars Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton, will not be getting a third series.
Despite a great critical response ratings for Psychoville just weren’t high enough to convince its creators to continue with it. Reece Shearsmith confirmed on Twitter this week that the show would not be coming back, he told one fan “sadly, no one watched it”.
Shearsmith did explain that the show was not cancelled by the BBC, rather he and Pemberton had made the decision not continue with it, so it didn’t become an axed show. The comic did promise that he and Pemberton have other ideas they are working on and will not be gone for good.
