Hello all,

I thought I would get the opinion of the collective before issuing a change on this show. The TV Show MotherFatherSon, https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8049666/ (BBC) is listed as a TV Series but from my understanding it should be a TV Mini-Series and the end date is 2019. From my understanding (based on the article below) it was only intended to be eight episodes but there was an option to continue it as a series but the producers decided to leave it as a mini-series. 

https://metro.co.uk/2019/08/18/motherfatherson-wont-returning-bbc-second-series-not-cancelled-10589667/

I couldn't find anything official on the BBC website saying it's just a mini-series but IMHO a mini-series would be defined as a show with an intended finite number of episodes.

Even if the collective still considers this to be a TV Series the date needs to be ended. :-)

Thoughts?

For my education how is TV Series changed (I couldn't find this on the edit page) and is the Date field called "Release Date" on the edit page?

Thanks.

TV series can be changed to mini series by simply adding the plot keyword tv-mini-series, which automatically changes the display.

Air dates are added as release dates; for TV series they should be added to each episode. But the end year is a different matter, which needs staff attention. Perhaps a staff
member can make the change when they see your post, otherwise such requests can be made through the contact form here (Titles >> Edit series end year):

Thanks Peter! I totally missed "end year". I was skimming the fields too quickly on the edit page!! I will submit that change and I think I will put through the change for TV Mini-Series as well Thanks again!
