Terriers: FX TV Show Cancelled; No Season Two

TerriersThough many critics loved the FX series, Terriers just couldn’t attract enough viewers to stay alive. FX has announced the TV show has been officially cancelled.

Terriers follows a pair of unorthodox and unlicensed private detectives. They’ll take just about any job, no matter how small or how strange. The show stars Donal Logue, Michael Raymond-James, Kimberly Quinn, Laura Allen, Rockmond Dunbar, and Jamie Denbo.

The series debuted to a 0.5 rating among the 18-49 demographic and 970,000 total viewers. When compared to other FX shows, that was a poor showing right from the start. The numbers went lower for subsequent episodes and the recent season finale attracted a 0.3 demo rating and 784,000 viewers.

FX President John Landgraf is expected to discuss the decision later today but ultimately the reason for the cancellation seems quite clear.

What do you think? Are you sorry that Terriers won’t be returning for a second season? Why didn’t it catch on? Was it simply a confusing title or something more?

    I am really sorry this show is cancelled. Never heard of it until Netflix picked up the series. Fantastic characters and writing is over the top. What is the matter with you people?

    As with others users comment, I have not heard of this show until I ran across it on Netflix. I was hooked from the very start during the pilot. In fact, I watched the first 4 episodes on the same night. I can’t wait until I can continue viewing it later this week. It is a fantastic show. The acting and writing is top notch. Reminiscent of “Breaking Bad” which is excellent as well. Bring back TERRIERS!!

    I really hate that there was no season two for terriers. It really had a great story line behind it and I truly feel that it wasn’t given enough time for the viewers to catch on. I truly was looking for to season two when i watched the whole season 1 on Netflix. It wasn’t advertised enough. I think they should have had more commercels and previews so they would have had a better shot at getting their 2nd season.

    I loved the show! I have it on Netflix and watched 10 episodes with my wife one evening and we were hooked! we sure overslept the next day, but it was well worth it. Too bad there will be no season 2:(

    This is (was) a very good program. I had not seen or heard of the show until I ran across it on Netflix. Began to look to see if new episodes were airing and found it had been cancelled last year. A drag considering all the B.S. that is on TV. “What you think is useful I don’t understand…”

    Good acting, good writing, a great show. I never heard of it until I found it on Netflicks. I would watch more TV if there were more well made shows like this. BRING IT BACK.

    I thought it was a great show! I’m a 68 year old widowed woman and enjoyed it very much. Sorry to see it off when so many stupid shows make it! Remember Seinfeld, that was not popular at first! Different time slot, different night, they were great actors and I thought the writing was excellent!
