Eternal Law Axed After Just One Series

ITV’s Eternal Law– which featured angelic lawyers – has been axed after one series, according to star Samuel West.

West played Zak Gist on the show and broke the news of its cancellation on social networking site, Twitter.

Speaking to his 9, 195 followers, West said: “Alas there will be no more Eternal Law,” he confirmed.

“Not enough people watched it. A thousand thanks to those of you who did, and said such kind things.”

He added: “I’ll miss Zak and the gang enormously, but I’m very proud of the work we did. And we’ll always have York. Onward!”

Despite showing a strong start with 5.43m viewers tuning in when it premiered on ITV1 in January, that figure dropped to a less-than-heavenly 2.9m by the final episode.

The show also starred Orla Brady, Ukweli Roach and Tobias Menzies – not that it matters anymore.
