ITV cancels Home Fires after two seasons

ITV has cancelled Home Fires after two series. 

The show, which followed the women of Great Paxford Women's Institute and their efforts to bring together their community during the Second World War, had just finished its second run on the channel, but it will not be returning for a third series. 

It starred Samantha Bond, Claire Rushbrook, Fenella Woolgar and Leanne Best, it was created by Simon Block, previously best known for his work on Hotel Babylon. 

An ITV spokesman said: "We are incredibly proud of what Home Fires has achieved, but the ITV commissioning team continues to refresh the channel's drama portfolio, hence the decision not to commission a further new series." 

The second season of the show was released on DVD on Monday (May 9th) and is available to purchase on the right-hand side of the page.
