The BBC has shown reruns of the show originally aired from 1982 to 1992, but worries now that a character such as Gestapo officer Herr Flick, may insult viewers, British media reported.
The show created by Jeremy Lloyd and David Croft ran 85 episodes over nine seasons. Set in German-occupied France in the town of Nouvion, the story focused on a cafe owner played by British actor Gorden Kaye.
A source told the Mail Online they blamed political correctness for a 'sad' decision. The source said "Allo Allo" was one of the favorite shows on a list of prospective comebacks. "But everyone is now so scared of causing any offence they didn't want to take the risk because it involves Nazis.," the source said.
