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?

This will be the last subscription of Starz for us. Magic City was the only reason why we paid. There is nothing but garbage on Starz, HBO (except Boardwalk Empire which is running it’s last season anyway) , Cinemax and TMC. Thanks Comcast for the ugly bundle…. Where is the leadership in producing anymore?

I am very sad to see Magic City cancelled. It was my favorite series ever. I would like to see it brought back. I tried watching Black Sails and could neither get or stay interested. Boring. Cancelling Magic City was a poor decision for us customers.
