American TV network Showtime confirmed there would be no new episodes of the drama, which was inspired by the lives and ground-breaking work of sex researchers Dr William Masters and Virginia Johnson.

In a statement to Deadline, Showtime said: “Masters of Sex was a beautifully written and acted exploration of America’s changing sexual mores. We are incredibly proud to have shared the story of Masters and Johnson for four critically-acclaimed seasons.”

The fourth series of Masters Of Sex recently concluded in the US, with the final episode seeing characters William and Virginia – played by Michael and Lizzy Caplan – get married

The show was nominated for a Golden Globe award for best TV drama in 2013. The first two series aired in the UK on Channel Four and More 4 in the UK.
