Channel 4 Cancel Matt Berry’s Year Of The Rabbit

In news that will hit fans of the series right in the jam tart, despite previously renewing the show for a second run, Year of the Rabbit has been cancelled by Channel 4. Here’s what they had to say for themselves in a statement from a spokesperson for the channel.

“We’re hugely proud of this hilarious and fearless comedy series, but as result of the impact of COVID on our schedules we have made the difficult decision not to enter into a second series with a heavy heart.”

Year of the Rabbit starred Berry as a Victorian-era copper forced to work with a plucky new partner (Freddie Fox), and is aided endlessly by Mable, the first female police officer played by the brilliant Susan Wokoma. I say this as no insult to the late great John Hurt, but Year of the Rabbit has a unique take on John Merrick aka The Elephant Man( Merrick don’t freak for free!). On the upside, there might still be a slither of hope that Year of the Rabbit will rise again as the producers are attempting to find the show a new home.

“Year Of The Rabbit is a victim of the devastating effects of Covid. IFC are very committed to the show, but we will need to find another partner — and we’re working on that.”

Perhaps this will leave Susan Wokoma available to take on a soon to vacant role having adventures in time and space?

You can stream Year of the Rabbit on All4.
