Torchwood revival still possible
Starz CEO Chris Albrecht hasn’t ruled out the possibility of further seasons of Torchwood.
The fourth series of Torchwood, titled Miracle Day, aired on Starz and BBC One last year – it was a co-production between the BBC and Starz. As yet though no further seasons of the Doctor Who spin-off have been ordered but Starz CEO Chris Albrecht has said there is still a chance a new series will happen.
“You know, Russell is so busy….Obviously, we’re in touch with the BBC all the time. They are our partners on DaVinci’s Demons and Harem. We told them, we stand by ready for any news, but I think it would be a while before Russell came back to Torchwood.” – Chris Albrecht speaking to Multichannel News
Following the co-production deal for Torchwood Starz and the BBC signed a new deal to collaborate together on future projects. The deal gave Torchwood fans hope that a further season could follow. The mixed reception to Miracle Day and its average ratings have, to some, put the future of the spin-off in doubt though.
Lead star John Barrowman previously described the series as being “in limbo”. However, the series shouldn’t be written off completely as there was a noticeable gap between the third season – Children of Earth – and the recent fourth series. So its entirely possible there may be another gap of several years before any new episodes of Torchwood are produced.
