Most British drama series are produced as short-run series, with only a few episodes produced each season. In some cases, we are able to get the first few seasons all at once but then have to wait months or even years for new episodes to be produced and made available in the U.S.
Each program we air comes with a set of broadcast rights that define how long the program can be aired. We generally cannot go back and repeat earlier seasons of a program because the broadcast rights have expired. Often the program is no longer being offered by the distributor, or if it is offered, the rights must be repurchased. We have limited funds for purchasing programs and spending those funds on repeats isn’t always possible.
