The BBC launched the first series of The Nest in 2020 following the lives of married couple, Dan Docherty (played by Martin Compston) and Emily (Sophie Rundle) who couldn’t conceive a baby on their own, so turned to a teenager, Kaya for help to be the surrogate. Little do they know that Kaya (Mirren Mack) had some dark secrets from her past.
It has now been reported that the drama, which is set in Glasgow, has been axed.
This is despite pulling in eight million viewers when it aired in spring 2020.
An insider told the Daily Star: “It was decided they wouldn’t commission another run of The Nest.
“The show was a really big deal for Martin. It was his chance to prove he can be a star away from Line Of Duty. And while he gave a great performance, it wasn’t enough.”
Another source added: “It is much harder to make shows at the moment because of all the restrictions.”
The five-part series followed the lives of Dan and his wife Emily who tried every option possible to conceive a baby.
Emily was left unable to have children herself and Dan was against adopting a child.
After deciding to go down the route of surrogacy, Emily had a chance encounter with Kaya and she offers to be the couple’s surrogate.
At first, Dan was completely against the idea, but in an argument, Emily told him that she “was going to do it with or without him”.
After Kaya agreed to carry a baby for the couple, things started to unravel and become more complicated.
“Something’s not right,” Dan says in the trailer. “She’s got all the power we have no choice but to trust her.”
Series one of The Nest had an explosive ending as viewers believed that Kaya was a murderer, having killed a pregnant woman and her unborn child when she was 11.

It was also suggested by police that she had taken the life of her ex-boyfriend Doddy too, however, this was not the case.
Kaya’s mother did try and persuade Kaya to keep Dan and Emily’s baby, although, she knew the couple wouldn’t go down without a fight.
Dan and Emily decided to take Kaya to court in hopes of getting their baby back.
However, in a cruel twist, Kaya decided to make up a pack of lies and sell her story to the press making them out to be bad parents.
In the end, Kaya soon came to her senses because she realised that she was putting herself and the baby at risk after changing her identity.
She quickly became the target of attacks and was in no fit state to look after a newborn baby.
In a bid to make things right, Emily then reached out to Kaya promising that they wouldn’t be taking any further legal action.
Instead, they offered the teenager emotional and financial support as they just wanted what was best for their baby.
In a complete turn of events, the series ended with Kaya giving Dan and Emily back the baby.
The drama ended on a cliffhanger as the judge told them that they could have the baby, for now, meaning it may not be forever.
