ABC has cancelled John Ridley’s critically acclaimed, yet low-rated American Crime TV show. There will be no fourth season. Fans largely expected American Crime would be cancelled rather than renewed. The third season averaged a 0.39 rating in the 18 to 49 year old demographic and 1.92 million viewers. Acclaim is one thing, but ad-buys are king.
A crime drama anthology, the American Crime season three cast includes: Regina King, Felicity Huffman, Connor Jessup, Richard Cabral, and Benito Martinez. Sandra Oh, Cherry Jones, Tim DeKay, Janel Moloney, Dallas Roberts, Timothy Hutton, Lili Taylor, Ana Mulvoy-Ten, Mickaëlle X. Bizet, and Clayton Cardenas recurred in the third season on ABC.
