Davies' BBC/HBO dystopian mystery drama ended its brief first season Monday night by raising some questions. "Will we ever know? What’s the truth these days? That’s the whole point to that ending, what’s true, what’s false? Can we believe in anything?" says Davies, who created Years and Years. When asked if Years and Years could return for a second season, he responds: "No, I’m afraid that’s it. I mean, that’s such a perfect ending. It was always devised as a one-off for the BBC. It was originally pitched to them as just six episodes, and I always knew that we’d end on that question." Davies also says of Years and Years: "I wanted to show every single stage that is happening around us now, in real life and in the story. The Brexit Channel has done similar things post-referendum here, this is becoming the darkest time in this country. What a ridiculous parade of clowns that is that the Brexit Channel now exists, and these tricks are being pulled on us all over the world. Look at Trump, or Boris Johnson now over here. That is the greatest lying clown I’ve ever seen in my life. It’s terrifying, and all over the world. We’re living in some extraordinary times."
