BBC loses its taste for bisexual zombies

BBC3 have today announced there will be no third season of “In The Flesh”.

The programme, about the social tensions between zombies and humans after a zombie apocalypse has turned into a kind of truce between the living and undead, included one of TV’s few bi male characters, Kieren Walker.  His two romantic interests depicted in the series have both been male but in interviews about the programme the show’s creator Dominic Mitchell has talked about Kieren as a bisexual man.

A statement from the BBC said that “BBC Three is very proud of the two award-winning series of In the Flesh. However, given there is only budget for one original drama series a year on the channel it won’t be returning.

“We loved the show but have to make hard choices to bring new shows through and create room for emerging talent.”
