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.”
