CBS has decided to cancel a series based on a police procedural by popular novelist James Patterson, reports Variety. The series is “Instinct,” based on Patterson’s “Murder Games.”
Nate Nickolai for Variety writes that the show features Alan Cumming “as CBS’ first gay protagonist, a psychology professor and author who begins profiling murderers in New York City after a serial killer uses his own book as inspiration for killings.”
Season two of “Instinct” began airing on June 30th. The last episode of season two – which is now also the show’s finale, is scheduled to air on Sunday, Aug. 25th.
Series co-star Bojana Novakovic, who plays Lizzie on “Instinct,” took to Twitter to express her disappointment with the cancellation, Variety says. “WELL THIS SUCKS BALLS,” she tweeted, adding, “But when one door closes another… actually f— that. This sucks balls. Love to all our fans and the most incredible cast and crew. Thank you all for an incredible two years.”
