With Showtime spending $13m on Cloudstreet last year observers consider the third season was very lucky to see the light of day, but it returned at 6 episodes, now totalling 22.
Production sources tell TV Tonight they are unsure if a fourth season will get the go-ahead, particularly with the changing face of Pay TV ownership and the looming outcomes of the Convergence Review.
Asked about a future for Tangle, a Showtime spokesperson told TV Tonight, “Officially -nothing confirmed yet.”
There have also been rumours that Showtime might pick up axed drama Spirited, but there is still no word if this may proceed, while actors Claudia Karvan and Rodger Corser are busy with producer John Edwards on Puberty Blues for TEN.
Without production on either project, Showtime will be without any current Australian drama projects on the table.
Tangle ends 8:30pm Sunday on Showcase.
