A drama series that has been running on cable will televise its final episode this week, with Deadline reporting that USA Network is pulling the plug on “Colony.” The series will wrap up its third season Wednesday, with the season finale to now serve as the series finale, the story reports.
“‘Colony,’ starring Josh Holloway and Sarah Wayne Callies, got off to a strong ratings start (2.2 million viewers, 960,000 adults 18-49 in Live+3) and was the No. 1 scripted cable series on Thursday nights in total viewers through its first two seasons, though there was some erosion between Season 1 and Season 2,” the story reports. “Then, after not landing a California tax credit, the series had to relocate production from Los Angeles to Vancouver, adjusting the story line to accommodate the move.”
Deadline adds: “Airing on Wednesday, ‘Colony’ saw its numbers slip further in the current third season, which is averaging 1.3 million viewers and 394,000 adults 18-49 (L+3), the lowest demo season average among the current USA drama series.”
