THE GOOD KARMA HOSPITAL 'AXED' BY ITV AFTER FOUR SERIES

The Good Karma Hospital, the hit drama set in tropical Indian hospital, has reportedly been axed by ITV after four series and 24 episodes.



Set in Southern India and shot on location in Sri-Lanka, the six-part drama averaged audience of 5.9m viewers across Series 3, and returned to ITV earlier this year for what turns out to be its last series.



Series 4 saw the return of Amanda Redman, Amrita Acharia, Neil Morrissey, Darshan Jariwala and Nimmi Harasgama who reprised their roles in the drama which is full of heart, unforgettable characters and set against the most stunning backdrop of Sri Lanka.


A source told The Sun: "The show ended with a storyline which delighted viewers — marriage between two people who clearly loved each other very much. Plus, audience figures had been slipping of late, almost three million down from the show’s debut series, which isn’t a great sign...



"It felt like the right time to end the story."


An ITV spokesperson said there are no plans for future series of The Good Karma Hospital.


The Good Karma Hospital is available on ITV Hub.
