No 'Extras': Two seasons it for series


The BBC2/HBO series "Extras" won't be returning for a third season. Writer-directors Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, who also star alongside Ashley Jensen, have decided to forgo another season in favor of ending the series with a special finale -- the same way the ended their previous show, "The Office." It is understood that the details of the finale are still being worked out. "Extras" was nominated for an Emmy last year in the comedy series writing category; guest stars Kate Winslet, Ben Stiller and Patrick Stewart also received Emmy noms.
