NBC Cancels Drama Series

Oct 3, 2016  •  Post A Comment

With the fall season now in full swing and off to a strong start for NBC, the network has been tidying up some lineup issues, including pulling the plug on the summer drama series “Aquarius.”

The David Duchovny series, which tracked the Charles Manson murder case, aired for two summers.

The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports: “The project from creator John McNamara was originally picked up straight to series with Duchovny attached. NBC launched the show in summer 2015, with the period drama becoming the first broadcast show to be streamed in its entirety following its premiere. NBC put all 12 episodes online for four weeks following its series debut.”

The network hinted back in August that the odds of a third season for “Aquarius” were not good, with NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke saying at TCA that the chances for a renewal were “tough.”



  1. Once again the programmers leave the viewers hanging…no wonder broadcast is on decline its letting the bean counters run an entertainment medium. They have to realize network tv is not going to get the numbers it used to and give folks real programming and not that reality crap.

    • Right on!

  2. Hopefully this series will be picked up by Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime or any other non-broadcast network that realizes quality programming. I can’t wait to see if they ever catch that Charles Manson character. lol
