Sky comedy Bloods cancelled after two series

Won't be a series three

Sky comedy Bloods has been cancelled after two series.

The series starred BAFTA nominated Samson Kayo and Golden Globe nominated Jane Horrocks.

It followed tough-acting loner Maleek (Kayo) and over-friendly divorcee Wendy (Horrocks), a pair of mismatched paramedics and their fellow ambulance station colleagues through the life-saving world of a south London emergency service.

A hit first series was quickly followed by a second outing last year, but there will be no series three.

According to Deadline, the show was cancelled despite initial plans for more episodes.

Writer and co-creator Nathan Bryon told The Comedy Loser he was “gutted” by the cancellation.

He shared: “I was GUTTED for loads of reasons. I was living my writers DREAM, that show was my first baby I had co-created so hearing it is finished before I am finished telling it sucks and I can’t lie, for a good two weeks I thought f**k writing hahahah.”

Bloods series one and two are currently available on Sky on demand and streaming service NOW.

A teaser about the series shares: “When tough-acting loner Maleek is paired with over-friendly divorcee Wendy, their partnership looks dead on arrival. But pretty soon they’re giving each other life support.

“With heart-warming characters, set within the fast-paced, never-ending rush of 999 call outs, Bloods charts Maleek and Wendy’s struggle to gain the respect of their fellow paramedics.”
