A rarity for Netflix. The streaming company has cancelled Lilyhammer after three seasons.
Actor Steven Van Zandt confirmed that there wont be a fourth season of the crime series as “business got too complicated”:
“Lilyhammer RIP. Not my decision. Let’s just say for now the business got too complicated. Very proud of our 24 shows. New ideas on the way.”

A new home for Lilyhammer doesn’t appear to be on the cards.
Being cancelled by Netflix – the traditional rescuer of cancelled shows – leaves few realistic options for Lilyhammer to be continued elsewhere, while Zandt already appears to have other projects in the pipeline with his “new ideas on the way” comment.
