The writer of Rev has admitted there will not be a third series of the award-winning BBC2 sitcom this year because the cast, including Tom Hollander and Olivia Colman, are “too bloody successful”.

So far the BBC has made two series and a Christmas special, and has attracted a range of impressive guest stars including Ralph Fiennes, Richard E Grant, Hugh Bonneville, Geoffrey Palmer, James Purefoy and the veteran actor Sylvia Syms.

James Wood, the co-creator with Hollander of the comedy about a London inner-city vicar, told MediaGuardian: “The cast are too bloody successful.”

Wood said he was “cautiously optimistic” about getting the cast together in 2013 but this could not be guaranteed.

“The other thing of course we need to do is to make sure that we maintain the same standards as with the other two series,” Wood added. He said he was currently working out whether a third series was creatively feasible as well.
