Indian Summers is cancelled after two series

The sun has set on Channel 4's period drama


Much like the British Empire itself, Indian Summers has retreated into history. Channel 4 has confirmed that the period drama, set during the British Raj, will not be returning for a third series.


“We’re incredibly proud of Indian Summers and have loved having it in the schedule, the channel said in a statement. “But with a number of new drama launches already confirmed for 2017, we have decided not to commission a third series.”

The drama’s second run is currently showing on Sunday nights on Channel 4, and stars Henry Lloyd-Hughes, Nikesh Patel and Julie Walters among others.
