Magic City: Season Three Decision Coming Soon

magic city season three?Chris Albrecht, the CEO of Starz, says the cable channel hasn’t made a decision about the fate of Magic City yet.

At the TCA Summer Press Tour, he said, “Our policy process is one or two seasons of a show to really get behind something if we like the work… We have a couple of little surprises in our pocket in store, so I can’t reveal too much other than you’ll have the answer to your question soon.”

Magic City hasn’t grown it’s small audience in season two and has been performing the same as season one, drawing 430,000 viewers for each episode’s initial airing. That’s less than half of what the Spartacus series drew (1.0 million) and only a bit better than Boss (360,000) which was cancelled after two seasons.

It’s difficult to judge what Starz will do but it’s hard to imagine that they see Magic City’s small viewership as a success.

We also know that they have four new shows in the pipeline and have already renewed one of them — Black Sails — for a second season some six months before the show’s debut.

I suspect that they may cancel Magic City and hope that their new shows will perform as well or better.

UPDATE: Starz has cancelled Magic City after two seasons.

What do you think? Should Starz renew Magic City for a third season? Is the show worth watching?

Sorry to see this show cancelled. Enjoyed the storyline and characters very much.
It seems that a quality series just can’t last on a small time network like Starz.

My daughter and I have been waiting for the third season to start and us found out it has been cancelled!!! I enjoyed watching Magic city because I modeled at the Fountain Bleu among other hotels during that era. I was also born in Miami and loved reliving memories. PLEASE, PLEASE, renew this wonderful series

Why not give Magic City another try because there is nothing on this channel that is very good to watch. The last show left me wondering what was next but I did not expect a cancellation.

We just got cable down here and I watched both season 1 and 2 and was hoping for another season at least. I liked the show and the actors seemed to be getting more interesting as the show progressed. Not happy you canceled the show.

Magic City and Boss were great shows. On another network they both would have had plenty of viewers!!

This is a good serial if start cancels I will cancel start they get you interested and looking forward to watching a show then they cancel. I will look forward to watching more stable networks that don’t cancel so easily. HBO. NBC, CBS last two don’t cost more on your cable bill and Netflix has great movie and on demand all cost less you only pay on demand as you watch not like start paying when you don’t watch it find a show worth having start and just when your involved they cancel but you keep paying
