Mr Sloanne will not see a season 2

Mr Sloanne has been cancelled by Sky

The Nick Frost fronted comedy drama consisted of six-episodes set in 1969 with Frost as the hapless titular character, and was created by Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Bob Weide.

Posting on the show’s official Facebook page, the team spoke of their disappointment and confusion over the cancellation.

“The thinking behind this decision is a bit baffling even to us, since Sky had been very supportive during the first series, and claims the show to have been a success for them by every measure,” the post read.

“However, there is a new channel head at Sky who, it seems, has a new agenda for the channel that doesn’t include our pal, Sloaney. What that agenda is, we imagine, will become more evident over the coming year.

“We all had a great time bringing you the first series, and all the love and support received from the viewers (and the critics) was greatly appreciated.

“As for Jeremy Sloane (with an “e”), we’ll just have to leave him on Mrs Wyndham’s couch, bringing in the 1970s, with that silly grin on his face. If you ask us, he seemed pretty happy there, so maybe it’s all for the best.”

Olivia Colman and Peter Serafinowicz also starred in the series, which aired on Sky Atlantic back in May and June.

A Sky spokesperson said: “We can confirm that Mr Sloane will not be returning to Sky Atlantic HD. We’re incredibly proud of the series and would like to thank its creator Bob Weide, marvellous cast led by Nick Frost, and Big Talk Productions.

“Sky has made a huge investment in original new content but as part of that, we do still have to make difficult decisions as to which series we should bring back and where we should explore new opportunities instead. In this case, we have decided not to bring back Mr Sloane but would love to work with the team behind it again in the future.”

Meanwhile, Sky Living comedy Trying Again will also not be returning, according to Radio Times.
