WGN America has cancelled period drama Manhattan after two seasons – there will not be a Season 3 of the atomic bomb drama despite creative plans to continue.
WGN America president and GM Matt Cherniss dropped the cancellation bomb in a statement:
“After careful consideration, we have reached the very difficult decision not to move forward with a third season of Manhattan. We are proud of this critically acclaimed series, an extraordinary original drama, and are deeply disappointed that such a wonderful show could not find a larger audience.
We thank the immensely talented Sam Shaw and Thomas Schlamme, along with the exceptional cast and crew and our great partners at Lionsgate and Skydance, for crafting a masterful series. We are equally grateful to the dedicated fans for their support over the last two seasons.”
