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?

A true quality show. Credit for its success goes to the show’s talent, credit for its failure goes to the network and the show’s “promoters.” Poor execution on the business side. So many creative paths to success missed. Truly sad.

PLEASE RENEW THIS SERIES!!!! Looks fabulous, characters developed and casted
so well, music/score, camera work/direction against the backdrop of this time period??
Unending plot/episode stories. There has not been the revealing of how this part of the country developed both ethnically, commercially, and by its proximity to a completely different country by any other film/ television to date. Each actor has been superb in their role and series altogether engaging. There is a loyal fan base, I hope if Starz won’t do it, another channel will. Netflix would probably do a killer job… don’t know how negotiations are done for an entire cast/crew… but, yes PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!

I thought Magic City was an outlstnding series and I was anxiously waiting for a third season. Obviously finances did not allow for that and I am dissapointed.

It was a very good show hated to see you canceled however pull yourself together and say it’s only a movie ,it’s only a movie, it’s only a movie. There was no end to the story because it’s only a movie.

I AGREE WITH EVERYTHING OTHERS HAVE WRITTEN! This show never lacked in any category, offering an even mix of: plot, action, violence, sex, and other ingredients. Bring back this awesome show!!!
