The End of Footballers Wives
One of the greatest TV shows of all time has been cancelled! Footballers Wives just ended their 3rd season here in the US on BBC America, but has just finished showing their 5th and final season in the U.K. The show's last season wasn't doing so well in the ratings, so the network and producers decided to close the door on this beloved gem.
An insider said that the hugely successful formula, which included weird storylines such as hermaphrodite babies, orgies, rapes, murders and over the top weddings "had run out of steam", and axed because of "falling ratings".
ITV director of drama Nick Elliott said: "It was one of the best series of its time and caught the mood of the early 21st century."
Brian Park, boss of makers Shed Productions, added: "Footballers' Wives has had a great run and we're proud we created one of the most talked about TV shows of recent times. It really caught the mood of the nation.
This saddens me and I'm going to need some time to pull myself together. What saddens me even more is that the show was never given a proper finale. Damn them! Bring Tanya Turner back!
