'Political Animals' cancelled
It was fun while it lasted.
EW has confirmed that the USA Network has decided against ordering more episodes of its political nail-bitter Political Animals.
The Greg Berlanti drama starring Sigourney Weaver, which ended its six-episode run in August, was initially billed as a limited series run and according to the network, they have decided to stick to those plans.
“We are proud of Political Animals, our miniseries that attracted critical acclaim and impacted the cultural conversation this summer,” the network said in a statement. “It was a pleasure to work with Greg Berlanti and Laurence Mark and a powerful cast led by Sigourney Weaver. We look forward to collaborating again with these immensely talented creatives.”
Political Animals, which chronicled a former First Family’s personal and professional drama, premiered in July with 3.8 total viewers and averaged 3.2 million viewers, according to the network, who in the last few days has been very busy cleaning house. In addition to announcing their winter premiere dates, they also announced the cancellation of Common Law and Fairly Legal.
Berlanti is currently an executive producer on CW’s Arrow.
