It was announced back in August that sex-positive comedy Chewing Gum was unfortunately being cancelled, throwing adoring fans of the Michaela Coel-starred show into a frenzy.
The news came from a quote by head of Channel 4, the UK network which aired the series, published in a now dead article link which claimed:
"Chewing Gum is a vibrant, hilarious and unique comedy of which we are incredibly proud.
Though there currently aren’t any plans for a third series, we hope to work with the hugely talented Michaela Coel again soon."

It appears that some miscommunication might have occurred, as the story hit a new and rewarding turn of events over the weekend.
Michaela herself clarifies the ordeal and explains she never actually told a journalist (or anyone) she had no plans of creating a third season of the series– she even explains she found out about the 'cancellation' the same way fans did. Ouch!
However, the biggest trickle of silver lining in the scenario seems to be found in a response Michaela gave a Twitter user when clarifying whether a third season will come our way. When asked, “So, season 3?” she responds, “YAS sis”.
Okay SO: I never spoke to anyone, (no channel no journalist) about there not being a season 3, I learned the news the same guys you did, same shock! I was offered other opportunities way before I was offered a 3rd season, I took them because I don't like being unemployed— Michaela Coel (@MichaelaCoel) November 10, 2017
The TV industry here is very different from USA, but I didn't wanna bore you guys with economy I myself prefer comedy, non-exploitative porn and this mother fucker, who has taken it upon himself to fall asleep in the back of MY fuckin ambulance. @OlisaOdele pic.twitter.com/A1Qs8lDyrf— Michaela Coel (@MichaelaCoel) November 10, 2017
YAS sis, but not now, my boat had sailed by the time the offer came & by now half my cast will be in Hollywood swimming in some sort of environmentally unfriendly pool. It will return (but be prepared to be surprised) lol. Thank u ❤️ https://t.co/ZRB2CsJUKf— Michaela Coel (@MichaelaCoel) November 10, 2017
With Coel being understandably busy with starring in the upcoming season of Black Mirror and the musical Been So Long, there isn't a definitive answer on when exactly Chewing Gum will make its return. In the meantime, we'll just wait patiently and watch seasons 1-2 on repeat till then.
