AMC, the erstwhile all-movie channel that’s had great success with original series over the past few years, has finally cancelled one, James Hibberd at The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed blog reports.
Writes Hibberd, "AMC has cancelled a drama series — political thriller "Rubicon." [The series] will not continue following its sleepy first season, which averaged 1.6 million viewers and an ultra-soft 439,000 adults 18-49."
The article says AMC released a statement saying, ""Rubicon gave us an opportunity to tell a rich and compelling story and we’re very proud of the series. This was not an easy decision, but we are grateful to have had the opportunity to work with such a phenomenally talented and dedicated team."
AMC airs the Emmy Award winning "Mad Men’ and "Breaking Bad." It’s other freshman series, "The Walking Dead," has already been renewed for season two.
