James Nesbitt's Monroe axed
Hit ITV show Monroe has been axed after two series.
The medical drama, starring James Nesbitt as a neurosurgeon, debuted in early 2011 and pulled in an average of 5.7 million viewers.
However, ratings for the latest series dropped to four million, and now a spokesperson for the channel confirms it will not be renewed for a third run.
A statement from ITV reads, "It has been a fantastic series, which we have been proud to have on the channel, but continuing to refresh our slate is an important part of the creative process for ITV Drama."
