Craig won't have time to reprise his role as the secret agent as Purity, which will be the adaptation of Jonathan Franzen's novel, is expected to run for several series, reports dailymail.co.uk.
Earlier, the actor had dropped hints of bidding goodbye to James Bond prior to the release of the franchise's 24th instalment Spectre last year.
"I'd rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No, not at the moment. Not at all. That's fine. I'm over it at the moment. We're done. All I want to do is move on,” Craig was quoted by The Sun newspaper as saying.
However, Craig had recently claimed that he may not be able to leave just yet as he had signed a contract that requires him to make another film.
