SAS: Who Dares Wins cancelled but good news for celeb spin-off
A longer, eight-part celebrity season will be filmed this summer.
The news was delivered alongside confirmation that the show's Celebrity edition would be continuing, with a fifth season expected to arrive later this year and season 6 set to film this summer.
A spokesperson for Channel 4 told The Sun: "Due to the huge success of Celebrity SAS we have shifted our focus to prioritise this strand. A longer, eight-part series is to commence filming in the summer."
Meanwhile, a spokesperson told Deadline that the civilian version of SAS: Who Dares Wins was being "rested", rather than necessarily being permanently cancelled.
The most recent civilian season of SAS: Who Dares Wins featured a number of switch-ups, with Mark Billingham becoming Chief Instructor and the location being shifted to the jungle in Thung Ui, northern Vietnam.

Meanwhile, the last Celebrity season saw four contestants emerge victorious - Maisie Smith, Ferne McCann, AJ Pritchard and Calum Best.
Smith said of finding out she had completed the process successfully: "It was a pretty amazing feeling. It was like nothing else because when you're there, it did really feel like life and death.
"All you wanted was to make it and I think my biggest fear on the show wasn't the heights, it wasn't the beatings, it was the fear of failing.
"So, I think at the end when I actually passed, it was just the most overwhelming feeling. I've never felt anything like it!"
