The Circle fans are saddened to discover the Channel 4 show is CANCELLED and will not return for a fourth series

The Circle fans shared their disappointment on Friday after it was reported that the Channel 4 show has been cancelled and will not be returning for a fourth series. 

The reality television programme saw contestants housed in one apartment block, but in separate apartments, communicating through their profiles on a social media device called The Circle. 

The contestants competed against each other through their online identities and the participants with the least likes on each episode were ‘blocked’ from The Circle.

Meanwhile the player with the most votes from their fellow contestants was crowned the winner of the series. 

Channel 4 confirmed in a statement that they have decided to end to the social media experiment to focus on other TV productions. 

A spokesperson for the channel said to The Sun: ‘The Circle has been a huge hit for young audiences and has grown successively over three seasons on Channel 4, consistently outperforming slot averages.

‘We’re incredibly proud to have worked with Studio Lambert North and Motion Content Group to invest in such an innovative show and to have given it a springboard for its international format success.

‘In much the same way as when we originally commissioned The Circle, Channel 4 has a responsibility to continually look at how we reinvent and create space for new ideas, and so we have decided not to commission the show for a fourth season. 

‘We’d like to thank Studio Lambert, Motion and all those involved for The Circle’s huge success over the last three series.’

A second wrote: ‘The last 15 months have been dark enough without the added issue ofthe Circle being cancelled on Channel 4…… WHAT. THE. BLOODY. #TheCircle.’
