MELISSA George's British spy series Hunted may have endured the shortest cancellation in television history.

Only a day after the BBC confirmed it would not proceed with a second series of the show, its US producer, HBO, has said that in the truest Hollywood tradition, the show must go on.

"We are making plans with creator and executive producer Frank Spotnitz and star Melissa George to present a new chapter in the Sam Hunter mythology," said HBO's Kary Antholis, in a statement issued to Fairfax overnight.

Antholis is the HBO executive in charge of the network's miniseries, and programming for its Cinemax channel; the first season of Hunted was part of Cinema's programming slate.

"We are very pleased with what Hunted has done for Cinemax's brand and are very excited about what lies ahead," Antholis said.
