As largely expected, USA Network has cancelled Damnation after one season. The Netflix deal wasn’t enough to save the period drama for Season 2.
Damnation was billed as an epic saga about the secret history of the 1930s American heartland, centering on the mythic conflict and bloody struggle between big money and the downtrodden.
The series will not be shopped to other networks or outlets, sources confirm.
Reflecting on the show’s demise, series creator Tony Tost said:
“I love what we made, and how we went about making it. I’m proud to have Damnation out there for people to still find days and weeks and months and years from now. Thanks and love to all who helped and supported and watched.”
Really bad move is a very good show reconsider plz

I am so tired of all the good shows being canceled. They rather watch crap like real housewives and my 600 lbs life. Every show i got interested in has gotten canceled. True blood , Vampire diaries, Grimm, Damnation, Emerald City, Oz, Exorcist, the list goes on. Please stop cancelling our shows.
Beverly Alexander says
Deeply saddened to hear that this series was cancelled. My father n law and I watched the show together and truly enjoyed it he’s 84 and has liver cancer and there are not a lot of period shows to watch. Thank you for the time we spent together would hope you consider renewing the series it was made exceptionally well .
SHARON BATTERHAM says
I agree with Jessica. So many new shows are cancelled shortly after they debut that I have started recording them and not watching until I know the will be renewed. Why is this show being cancelled? I will not be watching any new shows on USA in the future until I know for sure they will survive.
Wow first time watching damnation on Netflix great show didn’t realize it already canceled what a joke leaving out the ending part dumb move at least finish the story with the ending
Exactly! I binged watched this show on Netflix and was looking forward to watching season 2. Deeply saddened that there is no continuation. This series shows history. Great show.
Big dong says
Great show! Great production values, superb acting ! Let’s make some more hoarder episodes?
You get good programing and then cancel it… Why to go… Netflix can you please pick up this show… USA doesn’t know good when it has it….
Netflix said No on Season 2 deal.
I am so tired of these tv stations leaving on such garbage as the kardashians and other reality bull and letting good shows go after the first season this show had so much more to offer then hmmmm lets say who is the fattest this week or who is the highest paid really getting tired of tv but to just stop watching anything new unless I know it is gonna have atleast a second season
Pissed Off Viewer

This was one of my favorite shows. I don’t understand why so many terrible shows get picked up season after season but shows I enjoy watching get cancelled after only one season.
I’m with you but I guess that we are in the minority AND PEOPLE JUST LOVE GARBAGE SHOWS!! I also believe that those who watch these GARBAGE SHOWS have short attention spans and they cannot watch a good show develop!! So many great shows CANCELLED!!!
Damn it! Damnation was an awesome show.
R.H. Nezas says
This is a great show! I am also so tired of all those snowflake shows on TV. I like it because it has violence in it and it is a Western.
I like all the actors. They are very believable. When I get to hate a character, I think to myself, “there is a good actor who makes his/her character believable.” Good job!!
There is real evil in this world to which we can’t turn off. This show points out what real life is all about in a lot of ways in a lot of lands.
It’s a well done and very interesting show. There are so few shows worth watching these days
I too agree with everyone! If you had advertisied on other channels except the ones you already own like Syfy and maybe NBC but I doubt it I found it on accident, just like most of USA, you had cancelled falling water so let’s hope you see the mistake you’ve made! And E10 was kinda like the world we’re experiencing now, with the wealthy taking from the poor! So now we never get to see what’s happened to amilia. You did the same with Incorporated and you showed it on both Syfy and USA I think Syfy gets a better budget! That had the Guy from the unit and other top notch actors instead you renewed colony! What gets me interested in a show be it Syfy or something like falling water, is I think could it happen if there was a nuclear blast could something like this with all the new technology every week like mr.robot! I think we’re very close & Incorporated most definitely people hording food doing what ever to not be on the struggling side! That goes on today in the 2018 ghetto come on your not showing or skipping a week also doesn’t help.
This is too bad. Damnation is a great series. Our choices for good series are fewer and fewer, while BS like Big Brother, Real Housewives and Kardashian garbage continue on. what a shame.
It figures. Another great show gone by the wayside. ( like I really care what stranger a Kardashian is sleeping with this week. ) Cancelling Damnation, big mistake. ( can’t wait to see your New Show about Elvis, seen shopping at Target )

Damnation was a great show I wish it get renewed on a different channel a sad day I will start watching Netflix instead of trash TV.
Margaret Wiggins says
Saw trailer last week, decided to watch it as I like westerns, got hooked.
Now I’m in limbo as to what happened. I don’t see the point in showing
series 1 if they are not committed to finish what they started.
Omg please no you have to reconsider Damnation is the best tv show ive seen for ages. I was so cut finding out that season 2 was cancelled omg!!!! I was already 7 episodes in after finding. Netflix pls pick it up!!!
Say it isn’t so!!!! No season 2?? My husband and I just binged watched season 1, we loved every minute of it! After the last episode ended with a cliffhanger I checked to see when Season 2 will be available. So disappointed! Please reconsider!! One of the best out there!
No. Just no. I just found out about this show via Netflix. It was awesome. Netflix c’mon…step in, take over, and produce season 2..and 3..and 4. Please.
I just watched this great show on Netflix. I got hooked so I googled it to find out it has been canceled. Can someone please explain to me how a show that was this goodgot canceled? What was the reason?
Cannot understand why such a great show with wonderful actors was cancelled. Always the same with wonderful shows, CANCELLED. Well won’t be watching any more shows till they end with a closure. I’ll just wait and watch whats on Netflix for now. So sad stupid people would rather watch stupid shows and reality BS.
Jyssica Bryant says
This sucks this was a good show I guess will never find out if the wife was dead or not
Shame on Netflix canceling such a great show!
It’s because this show went against the mass media’s social narrative. I showed people that were subjugated by capitalist and corporate greed and corruption. A show that provokes individual thoughts and rebellion against the social construct of the elite ruling class is therefore canceled. Shame on you all.
