There will be no more entries in the “Secret Diary of a Call Girl” after next year.
Showtime said Friday (June 18) that it’s picking up a fourth season of the series starring Billie Piper as a high-end prostitute — but also that the new season will be its last. Production on the eight episodes is scheduled to begin in London in August; a premiere date hasn’t been set.
The fourth season will follow Hannah/Belle (Piper), who’s now a best-selling author, as she continues to waver between her career and the feelings she has for her best friend, Ben (Iddo Goldberg). The final season will also feature Belle visiting New York.
Missing from Showtime’s announcement is any mention of Ben (James D’Arcy), Belle’s editor and lover — until the end of the last season, when they had a bad falling out. We asked a network rep if he’d be back but haven’t heard yet.
