'Thirteen' Won't Return For Season 2, But The Cast Is Already Keeping Busy
There have been several stories about abductees in film and television lately, and Thirteen on BBCA always leaves you wanting more in the best way. Will Thirteen get a Season 2? The series' creator Marnie Dickens confirmed that Thirteen has ended in an interview with RadioTimes, but there's no reason to fret the end of the thriller.
If you haven't been watching on BBC America, the riveting drama asks the question "what happens next" after a women, who has spent exactly half of her life in captivity, finally escapes and comes home. Ivy Moxam, played by Jodie Comer, is trying to kickstart her normal life, but the past is haunting her at every corner.
Personally, I think it's good that Thirteen tells a complete, contained story in one season. This show doesn't need a Season 2, and that's not a bad thing. On one hand, the subject material is rough — we might not necessarily want to see the continuing adventures of Ivy, her family, and her friends after the series finale. Sometimes, the happiest ending is a quiet one. Plus, since the cast is full of British actors who are just brimming with new and old exciting projects, you'll never miss them. Here are a few places to find some of your Thirteen favorites.
Next, Comer will star in the Starz spinoff The White Princess as Elizabeth. You can also catch her in old episodes of My Mad Fat Diary.
Speaking of... Barnard plays King Richard III in The White Queen and can be seen in the War & Peace miniseries. He's also playing Mozart (the person, not on an instrument) in Interlude in Prague , which also stars Samantha Barks from Les Miserables.
While Alia is only in a few episodes, you can find this actress as Mary Magdalane in A.D. The Bible Continues or in the 2011 series Camelot as Vivian.
That's right — hot detective from Thirteen just appeared on Outlander as grown-up Roger, and should appear more in Season 3.
The other detective will actually be playing "Lyra Erso" in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story — who I assume is either the sister, or mother in flashback, of Felicity Jones' character Jyn Erso, pictured above.
The actor who played Ivy's father can be found when you finally watch The Fall (and you totally should) as well as a new British thriller series called The Secret and 2015's The Frankenstein Chronicles. The cast of Thirteen is everywhere, and while the story is almost over, you don't have to mourn the fact that it isn't coming back at all.
