'It's A Sin' Showrunner Confirms Show Will Only Have One Season

It’s A Sin will not be returning for a second season, its creator has confirmed.

The series is set in 1981 and centers on Ritchie (Olly Alexander), Roscoe (Omari Douglas) and Colin (Callum Scott Howells) who strangers at first, after leaving home at 18 and heading off to London with hope and ambition and joy and walking straight into a virus that most of the world ignores.

The show crosses a whole decade of their lives, and they change as the mystery of that illness starts as a rumor, then a threat, then a terror, and then something that binds them together in the fight.

Russell T. Davies revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that it will end with just one season.

“There isn’t a second season. It was lovely. It said everything I wanted to say,” he said. “The only long-running thing I’ve ever done is Doctor Who and that’s because Doctor Who is designed to be long running.”

He added that he’s “not quite sure [what's next]. A couple of people have contacted me asking them to mentor them, which I’ve done. I love doing that; both of those shows have been picked up. Strangely, I find myself as a script editor after all this time. I will start writing. I don’t know how I follow something like It’s a Sin. I think I’m just going to write something funny. I look at my career and I’m a bit puzzled on when I became such a tragedian, when I’m a really big laugh actually.”

If you missed it, Olly opened up about the show’s impact.

It’s A Sin is streaming now on HBO Max.

'It's a Sin' Star Olly Alexander Talks About Sex Scenes & the Show's Impact

Olly Alexander, the lead singer of Years & Years, is starring in the new HBO Max limited series It’s a Sin and he’s opening up about his work on the show.

The acclaimed series follows a group of gay friends who leave home at 18 and head “off to London with hope and ambition and joy… and walking straight into a virus that most of the world ignores.” The show was created by Queer as Folk‘s Russell T Davies and it follows the early days of the AIDS epidemic.

“I hope that young queer people watch and it gives them maybe a rich understanding of themselves and where we’ve come from,” Olly, 30, told Variety in a new interview. “We’re really standing on the shoulders of everyone that came before us. And I think it’s so important to acknowledge and recognize that and there’s a lot of courage and inspiration that I take as a queer person from seeking out my own history and my elders and how I’m connected to them, and how that’s impacted my own life growing up.”

Olly also spoke about the sex scenes in the show and how he prepared his family for them.

“I told my family, I told my mom, ‘Just so you’re aware there are some sex scenes,’” Olly said. “I actually, I spoke to my mom recently about this, and she was like, ‘I wasn’t bothered by it at all. It didn’t make me feel funny in the slightest.’ She said because I warned her about it, she was expecting it. I had a quite awkward conversation on WhatsApp with my cousins. But everyone was very sweet about it.”

All five episodes of It’s a Sin are streaming now on HBO Max.
