I'm happy to help with any campaigning to get the Smoke back for a second series - just let me know what to do :-)

Thanks. While we'd love to help bring the show back for a second series, it appears there is no hope. :( We rarely reach out to Jamie or his people, but, given Jamie's tweet and some discussion going on online, we thought it best to verify if there was a chance, even a small one, for 'The Smoke' to return. Sadly, there isn't.

It seems that while Kudos wanted to continue on, Sky isn't interested. And I'm assuming no other network has expressed an interest in picking it up, which wouldn't surprise me given the UK has fewer networks compared to the US. Also,'The Smoke' not yet having aired in the US, I believe, may have played a role in the cancellation. I know international sales are increasingly important for renewal and, for example, The CW picked up 'Beauty and the Beast' for another season, to the dismay of many, because it does well in Europe.

So, that's my long winded way of saying, I wish we had better news to share, but there's nothing we can apparently do that would make a difference. :/
