Vicky McClure clapped at the “rude” comments from ITV viewers in response to the end of the Trigger Point series over the weekend.
The bomb disposal drama series got a second season refresh after a six-part series starring Vicky McClure as explosives officer Lana Washington ended on Sunday.
The series has garnered 11 million views as it follows the Metropolitan Police’s bomb squad and counter-terrorism unit confronting an impending terror threat in the City of London over the summer.
But ITV viewers labeled the finale “very predictable” as it was revealed the man behind the bombings was Lana’s lover Karl, played by Warren Brown.
When he jumped on stage in a policy by-election with a pack of dynamite strapped to his chest, he was unmasked as the man behind a famous string of attacks, including one Car bomb kills Billy, Lana’s brother.
However, some fans were disappointed with the high-octane change and said they had seen Karl as the mastermind behind the white superpower group The Crusaders.
The 38-year-old Line of Duty star has now responded to criticism following the end of the ITV drama.
Vicky took to Twitter after season six aired and wrote a message to those behind the “indecent comments”.
Vicky retweeted a comment from a fan that read: “Rude comments aside, you’re awesome.”
Actress Kate Fleming wrote: “Indecent remarks are like a cold chocolate macaroons…disappointing, still eaten but quickly forgotten.”
She continued: “Warm chocolate macaroons are the best… as well as warm comments,” followed by a brown love heart emoji and smiling face.
When the credits rolled out in the first Trigger Point series, ITV announced that they had renewed the show for a second season.
Producer Jed Mecurio said: “Everyone at HTM Television is thrilled with the success of Trigger Point. Thank you to all of our outstanding cast and crew and especially to the audience who watched in such large numbers.
“We’ve had unwavering support from ITV throughout production, and we’re delighted to be working on a second series.”
Screenwriter Daniel Brierly added: “I am honored and delighted to have been given the opportunity to continue Lana’s story.
“I feel there are many more questions in her future. It’s been thrilling to see how the public has reacted to our show and I can’t wait to see what they do in the sequel! ”
