‘Still Up’ Axed By Apple TV+ After One Season

EXCLUSIVE: Still Up, Apple TV+’s insomnia comedy starring The Good Doctor fan favorite Antonia Thomas and Craig Roberts, has been axed after one season.

The series was quietly shelved earlier this year, we are told, having launched in September 2023.

Produced by I May Destroy You maker Various Artists and created by Natalie Walter and Steve Burge, Still Up followed the exploits of Lisa (Thomas), an impulsive and free-spirited aspiring illustrator whose questions over her daughter’s future start keeping her up at night, and the socially anxious yet gifted journalist Danny, played by Submarine’s Roberts. The pair have no secrets, except their feelings for each other, and while the world sleeps they spend their long nights talking despite never meeting.

Other cast included Blake Harrison (The Inbetweeners), Lois Chimimba (The One), Luke Fetherston (Flowers in the Attic), Rich Fulcher (The Mighty Boosh) and Sam Spiro (Sex Education).

Apple will not be taking the show further. Thomas and Roberts are, however, combining again on comedy-horror feature The Scurry, which will star the former and be helmed by the latter. Thomas played Dr. Claire Browne for four seasons of ABCs The Good Doctor and we recently revealed she is returning. The British actress has also starred in the likes of top-rated Channel 4 drama Suspect.

Apple is selective over its international comedy shows. Only Rafe Spall-starrer Trying, which launched its fourth season earlier this week, has run for multiple seasons.

Apple declined to comment.
