The BBC have revealed that their axed fantasy series ‘Atlantis’ will begin showing what is left of its second and final season from Saturday 11 April at 7:45pm.
The series was revealed to have been cancelled earlier this month due to the fact that its weekly numbers slipped from what they were during the shows first season, which was much lighter in tone. The show when it first began was loosely being tipped as the successor to the hugely successful ‘Merlin’, but unfortunately the heady highs that ‘Merlin’ managed to climb in the weekly ratings were a little too steep for ‘Atlantis’. Much like its namesake. The series sank.
‘Atlantis’ stars Jack Donnelly, Robert Emms, Mark Addy, Aiysha Hart and Sarah Parish, and was co-created by ‘Misfits’ writer Howard Overman and ‘Merlin‘s’ Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy.
