Starz Cancels COUNTERPART After Season 2 (Booo!)
Counterpart is dead at Starz. Creator Justin Marks announced Monday on his verified Twitter account that the premium cable network has opted to cancel the drama starring J.K. Simmons after two seasons. The news comes ahead of Sunday's season two finale, which will now serve as a series finale should another outlet not pick up the Media Rights Capital-produced drama.
"It's been an absolute dream for this team … we got to make exactly the show we wanted to … perfect cast, perfect crew on two continents … and we're so grateful to our network for the time we had," Marks wrote. "Thank you to everyone who made this journey so special for us. Your tweets, podcasts and intricate conspiracy theories have made it all worthwhile. Fingers crossed that our wonderful studio, MRC, can find a way to keep the dream alive!"
Picked up straight to series with a two-season order, the options on the cast expired last year but earned a brief extension to Feb. 1 as the cabler waited to see MRC could find a new home for the series elsewhere. The cancellation arrives as Starz CEO Chris Albrecht is exiting the cabler as Lionsgate leadership takes an increased role in the network.
While a critical breakout with a cult following, the series was unable to connect with a larger audience, generating an average of under 500,000 total viewers with three days of delayed viewing. As Starz continues to double down on Lionsgate-produced content now that the latter is the cabler's parent company, Counterpart's status as a show from an outside studio with a pricey licensing fee and cast likely contributed to the cancellation.
One of the best shows airing today. Sigh.
What the fuck STARZ
I’ve been waiting until season 2 is over to binge it, haven’t watched any of it yet... this is a bummer. Season 1 is fantastic. I hope 2 somewhat wraps up to some degree at least. Though probably not, if the cancellation came as a surprise to the creator.
I can honestly say I've never heard of this show until 2 minutes ago.
Terrible marketing and volume of 'word-of-mouth.'
Hopefully Netflix or some other network/streaming service snatches it and continues season 3.
Meanwhile The Walking Dead is still airing.
Try watching the first 5 episodes. It's a great show and worth your time.
Noooooooo this show is(was) amazing. The episode where they basically explain everything was one of the best hours of TV I've ever seen. This really sucks.
One of my favorite shows right now.
Hated this trash ,saw season 1 until episode 9. Couldn't stomach it anymore.
Edit - damn I see I'm in in the minority.
Yeah, that origin story was exceptional. I really appreciated that they revealed everything as early as the 2nd season, unlike some shows where they drag it until it becomes too convoluted like Lost.
I wasn’t a fan either. It’s a shame, because I really wanted to like it.
I know this show never go far. Premise is too sillly. If anything you can do a made for TV trilogy out of it and thats it.
fuckin starz SUCKS. who watches anything on there.
i hope a decent platform with better reach picks up the 3rd season..
shit is just gettin real good
Why do sci-fi shows always make me feel like Will Smith in that episode of the Fresh Prince?
damn.. clare had tweeted about the show being jeapordy, asking people to spread the word about the show wish more people caught on... both seasons have 100% on rotten tomatoes and it has a 8.1 in imdb, and a great concept, and jk simmons.
i blame starz for not advertising well.
lol This was literally my first thought.
Made me think of that old Chris Rock joke, "2pac and Biggie dead...Vanilla Ice still alive"
In what world does it make sense for a show like this to be cancelled in its 2 season!?!?
I wonder if STARZ just doesn't get much viewers at all for some reason. They have had some really good shows that i have enjoyed over the years, but they never really seem to get the attention and praise they deserve, imo. I feel like a show like Counterpart would've done well on FX.
