UK mystery drama Agatha Raisin has been renewed -but by US subscription service Acorn TV and not its original British home Sky One.
The series, starring Ashley Jensen as a former PR whiz turned village sleuth, began as a one-off 2014 drama, before it was picked up to series with an eight episode order in 2016. Following that first season Sky quietly cancelled the series.
“When the UK broadcaster chose not to renew it, Acorn decided to step in and fully commission the show itself in-order to keep this terrific series going for our subscribers,” said Shane Murphy, Managing Director of Acorn Media Enterprises.
At present there is no UK broadcaster attached for the second season.
It aired in Australia on ABC.
