Holby City the long-running medical drama to end in 2022
The long-running medical drama Holy City has announced it is coming to an end after 23 years.
The series first aired in 1999 as a spin-off from another medical show, Casualty. The final series of Holy will be aired in March 2022.
The BBC said it was “incredibly proud” of the show but it “had to make difficult decisions to make room for new opportunities.”
The ending of the show will see around 250 employees – including cast and crew affected by the decision.
“We are incredibly proud of Holby City but it’s with great sadness that we are announcing that after 23 years, the show will end on screen in March of next year”
“We sometimes have to make difficult decisions to make room for new opportunities and as part of the BBC’s commitment to make more programmes across the UK, we have taken the difficult decision to bring the show to a close in order to reshape the BBC’s drama slate to better reflect, represent and serve all parts of the country.”
It added: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank the amazing team at BBC Studios and all the cast and crew who have been involved in the show since 1999.
“Holby has been a stalwart with audiences, delighting millions of viewers each week and winning hundreds of awards with a compelling mix of cutting edge medical stories and explosive personal stories.
“We look forward to working with the team over the coming months to ensure that when it ends, Holby goes out on a high.”
