In what will come as little surprise to fans who have been suspecting as much, according to an article published on the Guardian website today, series 10 will be the last for Spooks. The decision has come from the production company who create spooks, Kudos, and not from the BBC.
Kudos chief executive and Spooks executive producer Jane Featherstone told MediaGuardian.co.uk: “I feel very sad about it. It was a very difficult decision to make. But we didn’t want to get to the point where the BBC said we don’t really want another one, we wanted to kill it off in its prime.”
As a dedicated Spooks fan it is a little sad to receive this news, but a decade of great television is a pretty mean feet! One can only be pleased that the show has stuck around for this long and has maintained such a great quality. I can not WAIT to see how they finish it!!
See Ian Wylie’s blog for some commentary on the show’s end.
There is no news on when series 10 will be aired yet, but if it is broadcast around the same time as it was last year, except it to be on our TV screens some time in late October.
Spooks 10 is expected to go to air in September!!
The end of Spooks does not mean the end of this blog! Fans will be talking about this show for a long time to come :)
