ITV medical drama won't be returning to the channel for a second series, reports suggest.
Maternal is about three female doctors returning to post-pandemic frontline medicine after maternity leave and having to heroically balance the intense demands of the NHS and motherhood.
A source told The Sun: "It’s been a very difficult decision because the show was much liked at the channel and the viewers who watched it really loved it too." You can watch Maternal now on ITVX by clicking here.
Maternal explores working motherhood with wit, warmth and humour and offers a unique perspective on our beloved, overstretched NHS, and the people who hold it together. Sometimes.
Viewers are introduced to Paediatric Registrar, Dr Maryam Afridi, played by Parminder Nagra, who is full of doubt that she can cope with the emotional demands of treating children now that she has her own.
Maternal is available on ITVX.
