Channel 4 has cancelled Lee & Dean after airing two seasons of the comedy series. The announcement was made be series co-creator and star Mark O’Sullivan on Twitter, who cited poor ratings as the key factor behind the cancellation.

Lee & Dean is set in Stevenage and centres around builder best mates Lee and Dean. It’s a story of cheap builds, cheap lager, bark rubbing, break ups, and bad poetry, but at the heart of it lies the heart-warming bromance between Lee and Dean. The comedy series is produced by Bingo Productions and stars Mark O’Sullivan, Miles Chapman, Anna Morris, Camille Ucan, Cariad Lloyd, Colin Hoult, Tom Bennett, Jason Barnett and Ricky Grover. Eleven episodes were produced across the show’s two seasons.
