The show launched as a pilot of Sky Arts in 2014, before coming to Channel 4, where it ran for two series. The first run was in 2016, with the second series screened in February and March of this year.
The format picked up good reviews, with the press noting the show was “tragi-comedy at its best” and that it made “unfunny subjects hilarious”.
A Channel 4 spokesperson told British Comedy Guide: “Across two series of Damned, Jo Brand, Morwenna Banks and the What Larks team created a warm, poignant, and pointed comedy of which we’re incredibly proud. However, with a number of other brand new comedy series already commissioned for 2019, there are currently no plans for a third series.”
