Magic City: Starz CEO Explains Cancellation

Magic City cancelationWhile fans of Magic City are understandably upset by the show’s cancellation, Starz CEO Chris Albrecht recently explained that the decision wasn’t a difficult one when it came to finances.

At the TCA press tour, he said, “It was a fine show but it was extremely expensive. It had decent audience but distributors weren’t interested in co-marketing it with us, and we felt season two had a pretty reasonable and satisfying landing spot.”

Magic City revolves around the world of Miami’s Miramar Playa Hotel in 1959. The TV series stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Olga Kurylenko, and Danny Huston, with Steven Strait, Christian Cooke, Jessica Marais, Yul Vazquez, Dominik Garcia-Lorido, Kelly Lynch, and Elena Satine.

What do you think? Did you like Magic City? Would you liked to have seen a third season?

I am shocked that magic city has been cancelled, it’s better then any show on tv or even Netflix for really putting you right there. It was almost as though you were there, sitting in the lobby or the bar or even, at the pool with all these people. I’ve been waiting for the new season to start and just found out today that it won’t be coming back. I don’t know one other show that actually takes you on a vacation. It may be an expensive show, but had it been on HBO, Show time , or Netflix it would have had an even bigger audience, and would have been worth every penny spent to make it! Thank you to all the people who made the show such an exciting entertaining experiance, for us all. I do hope that it will be picked up by another channel…it has winner all over it!!

Hollywood finally produces a show with a great cast, a story line full of scandals, murder and sex, but a show with class, then cancels it after 2 seasons. Might as well cancel my Starz subscription cause that was the only thing the channel had worth watching.

I ONLY GOT STARZ FOR THIS SHOW SO I’LL CANCEL NOW. IT IS BRILLIANT AND EDGY, ONE OF THE FEW ADULT SHOWS THAT HAS GREAT CHARACTERS AND THE PLOT SO REPRESENTED MID CENTURY MIAMI. I’M SO SAD THAT THE COST WAS NOT WORTH THE PRESTIGE TO THE CHANNEL OF HAVING A REAL SHOW. I DO NOT THINK THE END OF SEASON 2 WAS SUFFICIENT SO I DISAGREE WITH THE CEO.
LOVED IT BUT WILL CANCEL THE CHANNEL. I ONLY KEPT IT WAITING FOR SEASON 3.
