Global won't renew Bomb Girls series

  • Print

TORONTO -- Bomb Girls has been defused.

The Global TV series about munitions workers in the Second World War is no more, according to a statement from Muse Entertainment and Back Alley Film productions.

Tuesday's release said producers were "saddened to learn that Bomb Girls is not being renewed as a series for a third season."

It went on to say that a TV movie will be produced for Global this year, tying up loose ends in the storylines.

There were hints this cancellation was coming. Casting director Lisa Parasyn sent out an email Monday urging people in the industry to petition Global programmers to save the series.

"ITV wants more," she wrote. "Reelz and Netflix want more but we can't do it without Global."

The series was a domestic hit in its first season,often topping a million viewers a week.

This season, however, ratings fell in the Monday night time slot.
