Kudos kills off ‘Spooks’

British spy series to end after 10-year run

Brit spy skein “Spooks,” known as “MI-5” in the U.S., will exit this fall following the end of its 10th season.

Spooks” bowed on pubcaster BBC1 in 2002 and has since aired in more than 200 territories. In the U.S, it played on BBC America, PBS and A&E.

Show, created by David Wolstencroft about the British intelligence service, was hailed as the first of a new generation of U.K. TV dramas to copy the slick, almost cinematic-style of U.S. crimers.

“It feels like now is the time for ‘Spooks’ to bow out and make way for new spy dramas that reflect the changing world around us,” said Jane Featherstone, CEO of Kudos Film & Television, which produced the drama.
