Breakout Kings: Cancelled; No Season Three

Breakout Kings no season 3A&E has cancelled their crime drama, Breakout Kings after two seasons and 23 episodes. It seems this case is closed.

Breakout Kings follows a squad of U.S. Marshals who make special deals with prisoners to catch escaped convicts. The cast includes Laz Alonso, Domenick Lombardozzi, Brooke Nevin, Malcolm Goodwin, Serinda Swan, and Jimmi Simpson.

The series debuted in March 2011 to a 1.2 rating in the demo with 2.8 million viewers. The ratings declined in later weeks and the first season finale drew a 0.8 rating with 2.01 million.

In March 2012, the second season debuted with a 0.8 rating with 2.11 million. In that episode, many viewers were shocked to see Alonso’s lead character Charlie abruptly killed off. Alonso later told fans that leaving the show was not his idea.

Over the course of season two, the ratings for Breakout Kings further declined, hitting a low of a 0.5 rating with 1.27 million. The finale aired last month and A&E has decided they don’t want a third season.

Of the cancellation, Malcolm Goodwin (Shea on the series) tweeted, “So Breakout Kings is canceled. Thx to all 4 the luv & support over the last 2 seasons! It’s been a fun experience! Much luv! On to the next.”

The news comes soon after co-creator Matt Olmstead was signed to run NBC’s new fireman drama, Chicago Fire.

What do you think? Are you sorry that Breakout Kings won’t be back for a third season? Did Alonso leaving the series influence your watching the series?

I think breakout kings is shit, better than most of those dumb shows that be airing, like weeds, chicogo fire, and that stupid intervetion show, besides there are som things that still need tobe answered, and if you going to cancel a show cancel it with s better ending than that and cancel those other dumb as show not he good one.

Just watched the last episode… I can not continue with life without knowing what the cons said in that interrogation room!! I need to see llyod and julianne get together i need the cns to do their time and all get free in the end and if there is any possibility charlie can come vack from the dead that would be great too… If you cant make another series at least a one off 2 hour special final episode so we can all get some closure… We need closure… Llyod would agree….

I just finished watching the 2nd season. Wow I love this shoe, I could easily watch 3 episodes a night. I love the characters and the plot. And I was so so curious whether the team would accept the offer from the big chief or not…..
