Channel 4 series I Hate You, which stars Sex Education's Tanya Reynolds, has been axed after just one series.

The show premiered last year in September, and follows two flatmates called Charlie and Becca (played by Reynolds and Melissa Saint) as they navigate their 20s in London.

However, it has now been confirmed that the first series will be its last, with Channel 4 and production company Big Talk saying in a statement (via British Comedy Guide): "There are currently no plans for a second series."

I Hate You was overseen by Robert Popper, perhaps best known for creating hit Channel 4 sitcom Friday Night Dinner, which came to an end in 2020 after six series.

Reynolds is well known for playing Lily in Netflix's Sex Education, and spoke to Digital Spy last year about I Hate You, expressing hope that it would get a second run.

"I really hope there is a second season. I think with comedy especially, it's just good to have... I feel like you need a couple of seasons, or at least two seasons, to find the stride of it," she said.

"The great thing about the show is because the episodes are kind of self-contained, there are so many things that can happen to these girls – so much shit can happen!"

Speaking further about the show coming into her life around the time she turned 30, Reynolds added: "There's something quite cathartic about having done this show.

"Just as I was leaving, I had my 30th birthday on the show, and there's something quite cathartic about it because I'm really glad to have left my 20s behind. They were great, I'm very grateful for the lessons, but they were a mess!"

I Hate You is streaming now on All4. Sex Education seasons 1-3 are streaming now on Netflix.
