Patrick Ness leaves the Class

Not that there was much suggestion series two might be happening, but Patrick Ness has made it clear, via the medium of twitter, he will not be involved in any new series. He held out until the end of the BBC America run, but has now made it public. The odds were against a follow-on, but now it needs a new lead, and someone able (perhaps) to move the minds of the BBC schedulers.

Patrick Ness’s tweets are widely reported, including PATRICK NESS EXITS SPIN-OFF CLASS, SERIES 2 IN SERIOUS DOUBT.

I’m not surprised, but am I bid disappointed. He’d done a largely decent job, backed it into a bit of a corner and it needed a refresh (see all the past tense!), but potential there was. Thoughts?
