A BBC spokesperson is quoted as saying: "It hasn't found the mainstream audience it was hoped."

Hunted launched with 5.69 million viewers in early October, but the most recent episode - the show's sixth - managed just 2.59m on November 8.

Star George had previously voiced her desire to shoot a second series of Hunted - which is co-produced by US cable network Cinemax.

The Australian actress stated that her role as Hunter "could potentially be long-term" with a projected series run of up to "five years".
