Michaela Coel’s Chewing Gum is one of Netflix’s many gems, but the creator and star of the series says she currently has no plans for a third season.

Speaking with The Fader, the star’s rep revealed, "Michaela is not currently writing a third series of Chewing Gum as she is focusing on some other projects, but is not closing the door to the possibility in the future.”

Channel 4, which airs the show in the UK, released a statement confirming the news, adding, "Chewing Gum is a vibrant, hilarious and unique comedy of which we are incredibly proud. Though there currently aren’t any plans for a 3rd series, we hope to work with the hugely talented Michaela Coel again soon.”

Coel took to Twitter to thanks fans for their support, explaining that there’s much more on the way.

“Thank you to all of you. Chewing Gum has been amazing but it’s only the beginning, more stories to tell and my latter will be greater."
