Seven ends development on A Place to Call Home
Seven has ended development of its third season and actor contracts have lapsed.
A decision made last week means the show’s future is now in doubt, and not expected to hit screens in 2015.
“The development of series three is off the deck,” a spokesperson told TV Tonight.
“It’s no longer on the list. It’s put aside.
“The decision not to proceed on Series 3 was a Programming decision not a creative decision.”
The drama was created by Bevan Lee, who originally spoke about a vision of the show in three stages, driven by the characters’ past, presents and future. This season has also included ‘flash-forward’ moments as part of the storytelling.
While Seven has not ruled out an open door for the drama some time in the future, it made similar murmurs when City Homicide and Packed to the Rafters ended.
Other drama projects in development, include a completed pilot called Hartman’s Solution and more of Rebecca Gibney’s Killing Field vehicle, most likely under a new name.
Filming for Season Two of A Place to Call Home has been completed and is currently airing on Seven where it is winning its timeslot.
