The drama will not be returning for a second series, according to reports.
The Nest was an emotional thriller about love and money, and the price of being able to buy whatever you want, which first aired in the first half of 2020.
A source told the Daily Star "Execs at the BBC had meetings about the future of a number of shows. It was decided they wouldn’t commission another run of The Nest. The show was a really big deal for Martin. It was his chance to prove he can be a star away from Line Of Duty. And while he gave a great performance, it wasn’t enough."
Another added: "The virus has thrown the TV world into chaos. It is much harder to make shows at the moment because of all the restrictions. All channels are having to prioritise some shows and ditch others. The Nest is a casualty of that."
The show is described: "Dan (Compston) and Emily (Rundle) are crazy about each other. They live in a huge house in a beautiful location just outside Glasgow and want for nothing. All that’s missing is a baby - and they’ve been trying for years.
Through a chance encounter they meet Kaya (Mack), an 18 year-old from the other side of the city, whose life is as precarious at theirs is comfortable. When Kaya agrees to carry their baby, it feels like they were meant to meet - but was it really by chance?"
