Russell T Davies said the Channel 4 hit drama “said everything I wanted to say” and as such will not be renewed for follow-up.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, the Queer As Folk and Pickle writer explained why he wouldn’t pursue things any further. “There is no second season. It was lovely. It said everything I wanted to say. The only thing I’ve ever done in the long run is Doctor Who, and that’s because Doctor Who is designed to run in the long run. “
Davies continued, “I’m not exactly sure [what’s next]. A couple of people contacted me and asked them to take care of what I did. I love doing that; Both shows were recorded. Oddly enough, after all this time, I find myself working as a script editor. I will start writing. I don’t know how to follow something like It’s a sin. I think I’m just going to write something funny. I look at my career and am a bit confused about when I became such a tragedian when I am really a big laugh. “

Last month, It’s A Sin was announced as Channel 4’s most-watched new TV box on All 4. The show, which chronicles the lives of gay friends in London during the AIDS crisis of the 1980s, garnered 6.5 million views of All 4 of the 4 in early February to make it the largest instant box set on Channel 4 Secure Streamers.
Davies also recently revealed that the five-part drama series should be longer. He told The Literary Salon that eight episodes were originally planned. “It could have been eight episodes and there would have been an extra roommate and he would have had adventures,” Davies said.
“But I was offered four episodes and that’s fine. Everything I would have done was somehow condensed inward. “
In the end, the show ran for five episodes. Davies added that it was “always meant” to be another episode that catches up with contemporary characters. “It was never written so it doesn’t exist, but it was kind of budgeted. We would catch up with Jill at the age of 55 and she’s still working in mental and sexual health, ”he said. “It’s too long a story to describe, but it feels like it’s actually trapped in this world.”
It’s A Sin can now be streamed on All 4. In the US, viewers can catch up on HBO Max.
