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.”
