A cable drama that recently wrapped up its first season won’t make it to season two. About two weeks after wrapping “American Woman’s” freshman season, Paramount Network has canceled the show, Variety reports.
“Inspired by the life of ‘Real Housewives’ star Kyle Richards, ‘American Woman’ starred Alicia Silverstone and Mena Suvari, and followed Silverstone’s character Bonnie, an unconventional mother struggling to raise her two daughters after leaving her husband, with help from her two best friends,” Variety notes. “The series landed a 12-episode order for its first season, but followed a winding path to the screen. It was originally developed for Viacom’s TV Land, but was moved to Spike last year ahead of the latter network’s rebranding as the Paramount Network.”
The drama, from Warner Horizon, also survived a showrunner change midway through production of season one, with John Wells stepping in after John Riggi exited over creative differences, Variety notes.
