The show will not be returning for a second series on ITV, a Demons spokesman confirmed today. "It has not been re-commissioned," TV.com were told, and although no official reason has yet been given it's believed that budget cuts are again the reason behind the cancellation.
ITV suffered substantial financial losses at the beginning of this year and announced that it would cut jobs and drama production to compensate. The cancellation of popular drama Primeval was also blamed on cost-cutting.
Demons, starring Zoe Tapper and Mackenzie Crook, saw its ratings plummet earlier this year--losing a quarter of its audience in its first two weeks. The show also gained mixed reviews on TV.com, but still managed to gain a respectable average score of 7.4.
Are you surprised the show was axed?
