I was enjoying this on 5* but it appears to have stopped after episode 10. Anyone know if more episodes will be shown?

They are airing them in 2 blocks of 10 episodes, same as they did in the U.S. It will return but no date has been confirmed yet.

Season finale March 5, 2012 so all 20 episodes should be online.

I hate it when I'm enjoying a show and it stops mid season for no apparent reason. I might have to resort to watching online/alternative means. Channel 5 are terrible for pulling shows or having breaks unnecessarily. If there are 20 episodes to show just show them!

I'm confused. We're currently NOT on a break (like what they do in America). 5* has shown ALL the eps for this season. So season is now over.

^or have I got this all wrong ?

But why? The last episode that was shown was intended to act as a midseason finale. No harm in taking this break, especially since it's currently the holidays.

My bad , I was watching US pace, stopped, started watching UK pace, and thought UK had caught up with US and that this last one was the end of season ep20 one, my brain hurts.

On a :yay: side note, turns out I've got eps 11-20 already saved on one of my external HDs, so I can marathon my way thru the rest of the season.

Why? I would think that would be fairly obvious. If I am enjoying a 20 episode show and it disappears from the planner after 10 episodes (with no info as to when it wil be back) then understandably I would prefer this not to happen. I would far rather watch the entire series without the "mid season break" that they had in the USA. Five (presumably) have all 20 episodes so why not just run them consecutively? Furthermore, yes, it has been an Easter long weekend however I don't see how that constitutes "the holidays"? I for one was straight back to work Tuesday morning so no holidays for me!

Totally agree! stupid isn't it. At least 5 could do a voice over and let us know. Jeez (and I'm american)! There is absolutely no reason to follow the US schedule UNLESS, the US have held the final 10 back to force a break for whatever reason. OR 5 waited for viewing figures to decide whether to buy the second half?

I know there are people that are male that will like it, I'm male, but then again, I'm gay, but I think the show's target audience is females.

I'm very pleased about this. I was sure it was going to be cancelled. Glad I was wrong.

Saw a trailer earlier this evening for the "new series" [sic]. Described as 'coming soon' so I guess that means sometime within the next month, maybe, but before Christmas. But which Christmas is unclear

I stopped waiting for the second half of the season yesterday, and began watching online from where 5* left off. I'm now on episode 14, it's getting better and better.

Channel 5 have now scheduled The Lying Game to 5* return on Thursday 6th September at 8PM. Hopefully they won't pull it from the schedule again.

That's good to know, I've been waiting for this to return for ages, like you said hope they won't remove it from the schedule again.

Can`t wait for it to start. I think this has been the surprise package. I bet a lot thought it would be axed.
