A drama series that has been airing on cable has been canceled. USA Today reports that FX has opted not to order a third season of “The Bridge.”
The gritty drama series, set on the border of El Paso and Juarez, averaged a little better than 1 million viewers for its second-season finale, which aired earlier this month, the report notes.
“The series, based on a Scandinavian drama, followed the earlier program’s serial-killer template in the first season, before moving in its own direction in Season 2 as it examined drug cartels, immigration and poverty along the Texas border with Mexico,” USA Today reports.
The show starred Diane Kruger and Demian Bichir.
