HUNTED, the British spy drama starring Australian actress Melissa George, has been cancelled.

The series had been flagged as a possible successor to the BBC's long-running espionage franchise Spooks, but falling ratings in the UK have sealed its fate.

Hunted launched in October in the UK to an audience of 4.5 million but it has since slipped to only 2.6 million.

The UK newspaper The Guardian confirmed overnight the series would not return.

It is damaging news from an Australian perspective, as the series has not yet launched here. It begins on SBS on November 24.
