Intruders_bbc_cancelledDescription: From writer and executive producer Glen Morgan (The X-Files), Intruders is about a secret society devoted to chasing immortality by seeking refuge in the bodies of others. A contemporary, chilling, paranormal tale set in the moody Pacific Northwest, the eight part series spins a fascinating and complex web of drama. As strange, apparently unrelated events start happening, multiple story-lines – a missing wife, an assassin covering his crimes, a child on the run – begin to intertwine to reveal a conspiracy that will forever change our understanding of human nature.

Comment: This freshman series debuted well enough for an original BBC America production, but its numbers faded down the stretch and in February of 2015 the network quietly cancelled the show.

    Intruders is not a british import, its home country is the US and it has not yet premiered in Britain. It is an Original BBC America series produced for BBC Worldwide Productions. BBC Worldwide distributes the series internationally. Britain’s BBC 2 has picked up Intruders from BBC Worldwide and have announced they will air it in autumn (late Sep or Oct) in UK.

      You are correct. I thought I saw premiere numbers for it in Britain, but that was just BBC America ratings.

    I think it is a good show. It has a “Fringe” quality to it. I was looking forward to it tonight…..but instead there is Graham Norton. 8 episodes are not enough!

    I don’t think the BBC even aired the last episode I had to watch it on iplayer. Little or no chance of a second season yet they continue to make drivel like Eastenders 🙁

      Have you heard anything confirming the show will not be back? We have not heard anything concerning its status. It’s ratings weren’t great, but maybe okay for a BBC America entry.

    Typical BBC in the UK. They have form for burying later episodes of these edgy dramas. They used to do it with Damages.

    IT is a interesting show. I wish they would say it’s fate. They cancelled ‘atlantis’ and I don’t like to hear that ‘helix’ , ‘sleepy hollow’ and ohers are on the bubble. it’s not a good thing for sci fi and horror fans. However ‘nbc which owns ‘scy fy channel has hinted that Constantine will move there. But it’s really not a good thing that ‘intruders’ is not been announced for a return. The bbc cancelled ‘in the flesh’ and many other sci fi shows over the last ten years.

    I just about recovered from the shocking axing of Torchwood (a few years ago). I was totally into Intruders. That show should definitely be given a season 2 go-ahead! If it wasn’t for Doc Who and Orphan B I’d boycott BBC America forever. I refuse to recognize the American disaster of the T’wood’s last season’s American disappointment.

    We all have to come to grips with the reality, that television is no longer written for the creative mind, or the
    seeker of a deeper story that calls for independent thought or reflection. Stories that, ask of the viewer, that
    he, or she question their reality, or beliefs simply can’t survive on main stream tv. It is a sad truth, but one that
    can be easily observed by simply turning on the television. (HEAVY SIGH…)

    Bummer that is was cancelled. I really enjoyed this show; it was way above the regular mediocrity of network TV, especially the mindless drivel of reality shows.

    I wasn’t 100% certain, but I just did a search because I curious: of course it was canceled! A multilayered should with a
    storyline that makes the viewer pay attention. Another “too goof for TV” show bites the dust! It suks …
