Channel 4’s ‘Indian Summers’ Axed Due To Tumbling Viewing Figures | TV News



Indian Summers was envisaged by its creators to be a five series show, a 50-part retelling of the birth of modern India, and one of the most expensive dramas in Channel 4’s history. Unfortunately the show, the channel’s biggest hit for 20 years has been axed due to falling ratings.


The series debuted with an audience of 3 million viewers last year – consolidating an audience of 5 million by the finale of the first series. The second series debut has seen that bonanza drop to just 1 million views, the result of possible scheduling against JK Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy and BBC One’s The Night Manager.
