For those of us anxiously awaiting news on Dominic Mitchell’s excellent zombie drama In The Flesh, the last few months have been pretty tough.

However, speaking at the Wales Comic-Con (via Digital Spy), Mitchell said that the future of In The Flesh is “”up in the air”.

“”I think everyone would love to do a series three – I would love to write it,” he said. “It’s down to the BBC.

“BBC Three is going through a transitional period where they might be going online [and] that decision hasn’t even been made yet. That decision will be made in mid-December, so until then it’s still up in the air.”

When asked about the potential direction for a third series, Mitchell said that we could see the village of Roarton become further divided. “I think that’s what [the villagers] would see as a good thing – ‘We can’t get along so let’s be separate’ – but of course that breeds more trouble.”

The show has an incredibly vocal and loyal fanbase who have been tweeting their support with the hashtag¬†#saveintheflesh and at this point it’s important to stay positive.

We’d love to see a third series of this excellent, original and heartfelt show, so fingers crossed that the BBC make the right decision.
