EASTENDERS fans in the US were hanged after the BBC ran a 13-year episode.
Albert Square lovers in the US are watching shows since 2009 – a built-in time lag as they are only shown once a week instead of four times a week in the UK.
Beeb said it was “no longer able” to offer later episodes of the 36-year-old TV series shown on public broadcaster PBS.
That means US fans will miss out on Phil Mitchell turning into a crack addict, Queen Vic burning down, or Danny Dyer joining in as Mick Carter.
For now, they’re waiting to see if Barbara Windsor’s Peggy Mitchell wins the Walford council election campaign.
Michael Gordon, 69, who is leading the fight to keep Enders broadcast in the US, said: “There are so many people from all walks of life who love it and it’s not fair to simply stop it. again like this. I don’t want to miss 13 years of my favorite show.”
“It’s like losing touch with a dear friend or family member,” said fan Judith Hallett, 77, Professor of Classics at the University of Maryland.
Current episodes are available on BritBox in the US.
