A Channel 4 spokesman said: “The Circle has been a huge hit for young audiences and has grown successively over three seasons on Channel 4, consistently outperforming slot averages.
‘We’re incredibly proud to have worked with Studio Lambert North and Motion Content Group to invest in such an innovative show and to have given it a springboard for its international format success.
‘In much the same way as when we originally commissioned The Circle, Channel 4 has a responsibility to continually look at how we reinvent and create space for new ideas, and so we have decided not to commission the show for a fourth season.
‘We’d like to thank Studio Lambert, Motion and all those involved for The Circle’s huge success over the last three series.’
Studio Lambert have confirmed that they are in talks with other broadcasters, noticeably Netflix, about the future of the show.
