A BBC spokesperson said: "We are very proud of Bad Education, but in order to make room for new comedy shows, sometimes difficult decisions have to be made, and we currently have no plans for another series."

BBC Three's reboot of Bad Education is set to be axed after two series after star Layton Williams suggested the series won't be returning. TV Zone has approached the BBC for comment.

In an interview Digital Spy, Layton Williams said: "I don’t know how much I can say on this, but I will say it’s been a bad time," he told us. "Sometimes, all good things must come to an end. We usually film in the summer. I’m a little bit busy, so you can probably connect the dots."

Williams continued: "I will look back on Bad Education memories so fondly... I feel so lucky that I got to revisit that show for a couple of years and put my own spin on it and lead a company."

Since returning to BBC Three in 2022, Bad Education has featured lead actors Layton Williams (Strictly Come Dancing, West End’s Everybody’s Talking About Jamie) as drama teacher Stephen Carmichael and Charlie Wernham (EastEnders) as PE teacher Mitchell Harper.

Plus British comedy stars Mathew Horne (Gavin & Stacey) as Mr Fraser and Vicki Pepperdine (Getting On) as headteacher Ms Hoburn.

The new generation of Class K at Abbey Grove were glamorous gossip Usma (Asha Hassan), wannabe roadman Inchez (Anthony J Abraham), himbo Harrison (Bobby Johnson), clueless slacktivist Jinx (Laura Marcus), eccentric Warren (Ali Hadji-Heshmati) and energetic hustler Blessing (Francesca Amewudah-Rivers).

Bad Education is available on BBC iPlayer.
