CMT has cancelled Still The King after two seasons, the cabler has decided not to renew the comedy-drama for Season 3, Deadline reports:
Still the King, CMT’s first original scripted series, was a breakout, with its 2016 debut marking the network’s highest-rated original series premiere at the time with more than 4.7 million total viewers in Live+3 across three Viacom networks. Its second season aired this past summer.
Under the new Viacom leadership, CMT, a reinforcing brand in the new structure, has shifted its programming strategy, focusing solely on original unscripted fare, which is significantly cheaper than scripted.
Still The King will be joined by Nashville in the cancellation graveyard.
