EXCLUSIVE: The BBC appears unmoved by the online clamor to cancel JK Rowling over her views on transgender rights.

The British broadcaster is preparing to renew Strike for a sixth season after apologizing twice to the author last month because guests on news shows accused her of being transphobic.

A deal is yet to be done, but Deadline understands that the BBC is enthusiastic about another season. Strike is based on novels by Rowling’s pseudonym Robert Galbraith and chronicles cases investigated by Cormoran Strike (Tom Burke), a war veteran turned private detective, and his business partner Robin Ellacott (Holliday Grainger).

Season six will adapt The Ink Black Heart, which has echoes of Rowling’s own experience. It centers on the murder of a successful YouTube animator after she becomes the target of relentless online hate.
