The BBC has dropped fantasy drama 'Atlantis'. It will not be recommissioned once the second series has finished airing in the spring.

"The final seven episodes of 'Atlantis' will transmit on BBC One in the spring," a BBC spokesperson told Digital Spy. "We would like to thanks Urban Myth Films and all the cast and crew but the series will not be re-commissioned.

"We are very proud of both series but to keep increasing the range of BBC One drama we have to make difficult decisions to bring new shows through."

The first six episodes of series two were broadcast late last year. Then the show went on hiatus.

The series was like an X-Men of ancient Greece, with Jack Donnelly as Jason, Mark Addy as Hercules and Robert Emms as Pythagoras.

There is still hope, however. Both Amazon and Netflix have picked up series dropped by traditional broadcasters to the delight of fans. A petition to give the recently-axed 'In the Flesh' a new home online attracted more than 20,000 signatures. Amazon hasn't ruled out commissioning another series of the BBC zombie drama, so who knows.
