THE BBC has confirmed the renewal of four of its biggest series in recent months – but it hasn't gone down well with fans.
Vigil, The Tourist, The Responder and Time were some of the broadcaster’s biggest new shows of recent years, hitting the screens in late 2021 and early 2022.
On Tuesday, it was confirmed all four would be renewed for a second season, after huge success the first time around.
BBC’s Chief Content Officer Charlotte Moore told the Radio Times: "In its first 30 days, 12million people watched The Tourist – that’s twice as big as the largest recent show, Stay Close, on Netflix.
"The power that the BBC has to reach millions of people is far greater than we perhaps realise."
However, fans have been very split on the decision of the programmes’ renewals, with many feeling all but The Responder would be better left as singular series.
Alongside an emoji of an angry face, one person penned: "Time needs to be left alone. Why do we have this notion that more is better? Sometimes it’s just great as it is."
Echoing their comments, someone else said: "I absolutely loved Time – it was an outstanding series, but there's no need for a second season."
While a third added: "Tourist and Time had a beginning, middle and an end – now leave it be."

Some fans were keener on the news and looked forward to more, as one said: "Binged all four of these. Quality drama – loved it – can’t wait for more."
It’s not yet known when the four series are expected to return, but it seems likely they’ll be back on the BBC in 2023.
Vigil, Time, The Responder and The Tourist can all be streamed on BBC iPlayer in full now.
