Michaela Coel has confirmed that she will not be working on a third season of 'Chewing Gum' anytime in the near future.
Will we ever get to binge watch another season of Chewing Gum? Sadly, the answer to that question is unclear.
The Fader reports that the comedy's lovable show runner, Michael Coel, is not planning on producing a third season of the show in the near future, though a cancellation of the show has not been confirmed. A representative for the British-Ghanaian actor, shared the writer's plans to pursue new projects in the meantime.
"Michaela is not currently writing a third series of Chewing Gum as she is focusing on some other projects," said the rep "but is not closing the door to the possibility in the future."
Coel confirmed the news herself via Twitter.
Thank you to all of you. Chewing Gum has been amazing but it's only the beginning, 🤓, more stories to tell, & my latter will be greater. 🙏🏾

We can't say we're happy to hear this news. We're just not ready to say goodbye to Tracey or all the other colorful folks on the estate. WE NEED OUR CHEWING GUM! Nonetheless, we're sure whatever is next in line for Coel will be a major success. The woman is insanely talented.
