BBC Two drama Giri/Haji has been axed after the BBC and Netflix made a joint decision not to continue with the show, RadioTimes has revealed.
A BBC spokesperson said: “We are incredibly proud of Giri/Haji and the recognition that it achieved, however in order to create room for new dramas it will not be returning. We are very grateful to Joe [Barton] and the cast and crew for all their hard work on it.”
A SISTER spokesperson said: “We’re obviously very disappointed to not be going again with the BBC and Netflix as Joe Barton had so much planned for the characters. Everyone at SISTER is enormously proud of Giri/Haji and would like to thank our brilliant directors Julian Farino and Ben Chessell, Joe of course and the entire cast and crew who together have created something very special. We hope audiences will continue to find Giri/Haji and enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it.”
A Netflix spokesperson added: “Giri/Haji is a show of huge ambition and style, crossing cultures and continents in a way rarely seen on television, and we are so proud to have worked with creator Joe Barton and the amazingly talented team at Sister to bring the series to a global audience.”
