A&E has locked up Breakout Kings.
After two seasons, the cable network has decided not to renew the drama series, which centered around a group of convicts who catch criminals.
Executive producer Nick Santora (Prison Break) took to Twitter to thank fans for their support and talk about how the show would have resolved the second season cliffhanger, which found some members of the team deciding whether or not to turn on another member. “How it ends,” Santora wrote, “[Breakout Kings] pretend to turn Ray in but double cross Marshals so they go free & Ray walks. Shea gets rich w/ elbow savers…Erica raises daughter in the country. Ray starts private security biz, lives near his daughter. Lloyd & Jules marry. Name their son Charlie.” (Charlie was the name of one of the main characters killed in the second season premiere.)
Fellow executive producer and creator Matt Olmstead is currently showrunner on the new NBC drama, Chicago Fire.
