"We are incredibly proud to have made two successful series of period drama The Paradise for BBC One," said a spokesperson.

"However, in order to make room for new dramas to come through, The Paradise won't be returning."

The Paradise - written and created by Bill Gallagher - was adapted from the classic French novel by Emile Zola and starred Emun Elliott, Joanna Vanderham and Ben Daniels.

Launched in September 2012 with 6.61m, the series premiered its second run in October last year to 6.04m.

The series finale, airing on December 8, pulled in 5.07m.
