Sadly though, it’s not good news for fans hoping to see more of Vicky McClure and her co-stars.
Speaking to the Radio Times, writer Joe Ahearne explained: “It’s very much a self-contained drama.
He continued: “A lot of writers want something to write for five years. You try writing it.
“It’s absolutely exhausting trying to find out new angles on a character. How many stories really do you want to be with the same characters for years and years and years?”
‘The Replacement’ isn’t the only show to come to an end recently, and TV fans recently expressed their annoyance at ITV’s decision to call time on ‘The Halcyon’, after just one series.
But while ‘The Replacement’ writer Joe is quite adamant that his programme shouldn’t return, the team behind the hotel-based period drama are doing their best to see if it can return to our screens after all.
