NBC’s midseason drama Kings has been exiled to summer. The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that the low-rated drama, which was recently shifted to Saturday night after failing to find an audience on Sundays, had been pulled from the current schedule altogether. The show, starring Ian McShane, will return on June 13 and complete its run on July 25.

Starting this Saturday, NBC will air reruns of Law & Order: SVU, Southland, and Law & Order.
