However, it’s now been reported by The Sun that, “the gang won’t be reunited for a third series, with a source saying the show is ‘two and done”.

When approached, a spokesperson for Channel 4 said: “We’re incredibly proud of Hullraisers and all it’s achieved, in particular, the show championed regional voices both on and off screen and was widely praised for its celebration of Hull and its authentic representation of Northern working-class women.

“As part of our Fast Forward strategy, we’re focused on giving Channel 4 viewers the best range of programming, innovating with new shows and driving our streaming growth. That means we have to think really carefully about which shows to return, rest, or conclude.

“We’d like to thank Fable Pictures, the wonderful cast and all those involved in the show’s success over the years and we look forward to working with them again on future projects.”
