The Halcyon cancelled – fans react

Fans have been reacting to the news on social media, with some accusing ITV of moving too hastily with a show that had much “potential”.

Others have compared the fate of The Halcyon to that of ITV’s other wartime drama Home Fires, which was cancelled last year after two series.

Read ITV’s reason for cancelling The Halcyon in full below.

“ITV regularly considers the range of dramas we commission to ensure the right balance and range together with the best mix of returning series and new dramas.

“It does mean on occasions we have to take tough decisions, and not all drama can be recommissioned. We are really pleased so many people enjoyed The Halcyon and we are proud of what the series achieved. We’d like to thank The Halcyon production team and actors and everyone at [producers] Left Bank Pictures for their hard work.”
