'HOME' AXED BY CHANNEL 4 AFTER TWO SERIES
The comedy will not be returning.
Creator Rufus Jones said: "Sadly we will not be having a third series of Home on Ch4. It's rare you get to write a hero's quest in such literal terms. I'll never have a greater privilege than writing for YoussefKerkour, Rebekah Staton, OakleeP, _AaronNeil and everyone else. Sami. Habibi. Yalla."
The synopsis of the series was: When new couple Peter (writer and star Rufus Jones – W1A, Inside No. 9, Camping, Hunderby) and Katy (Rebekah Staton - Happy-Go-Lucky, Pulling) – and Katy’s son John – go on their first family holiday to France, the plan is to bring back a tan, a few happy memories and six crates of vintage champagne.
What they actually bring back is going to come as a big surprise… Sami (Youssef Kerkour - Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, Baghdad Central), a Syrian refugee who enters Britain illegally to claim asylum. Living in with Peter, Katy and John, Sami and his adoptive family discover and come to terms with what a home really means.
