A drama series has been canceled after two seasons, with The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reporting that CBS pulled the plug on “Strange Angel.” The series has been running on the CBS All Access subscription streaming service.
THR notes that the move marks the second cancellation for CBS All Access, following the drama series “One Dollar.”
“Strange Angel,” which stars Jack Reynor, “quietly” rolled out its second season in June, THR notes.
Julie McNamara, executive VP for originals at CBS All Access, is quoted saying: “The series brought new meaning to the idea that the truth is stranger than fiction and we are incredibly thankful to the creative team of Mark Heyman, David DiGilio, Ridley Scott and David W. Zucker for their vision, as well as the fantastic cast for bringing the bizarre story of Jack Parsons to life.”
“The news arrives as the platform is poised to get a content injection following CBS’ remerging with Viacom,” THR notes. “The two companies announced Monday that Nickelodeon library content would soon be coming to CBS All Access, giving a boost to the platform’s recent entry into the ultra-competitive kids programming space.”
