The news was announced by the BBC, with a press release stating:
“We are incredibly proud of Waterloo Road, and would like to thank Shed Productions and all the cast and teams involved across the ten series.
“However, we believe it has reached the end of its lifecycle and won’t be returning after series 10 finishes in 2015. On BBC One it’s important to make room for new drama and we are committed to commissioning new drama series for 8pm. There are some really exciting ideas currently in development but nothing to confirm yet.”
– BBC One Controller Charlotte Moore and BBC Drama Controller Ben Stephenson
Waterloo Road is currently the only output from company Shed Productions, who also produced Bad Girls and Footballers Wives.
Ending after an impressive ten series, Waterloo Road became a staple part of the TV schedule, and launched the careers of many young stars.
Goodbye, Waterloo Road!
