Espionage drama Berlin Station has shut down after three seasons. The EPIX spy series has been cancelled.
Berlin Station stars Michelle Forbes, Richard Armitage, Richard Jenkins, Rhys Ifans, Leland Orser, Ashley Judd, Keke Palmer, and Ismael Cruz Córdova who joins as the CIA agent Rafael Torres. James Cromwell joined season three on a recurring basis. The series centers on the CIA’s installation in Berlin and season three unfolds during an 11-day timespan. In Eastern and Central Europe, Chief of Station Valerie Edwards (Forbes) guides her team through the high-stakes relationship between Russia, the United States, and its vulnerable NATO allies. The Kremlin could be involved in some foul play with the potential to wreak havoc with international relations.
The third season of Berlin Station finished airing on Sunday, February 17th and the traditional ratings aren’t available for the series. According to Deadline, Epix boss Michael Wright said that, “we’re truly on so many platforms that it takes about three to four weeks after we run the last episode to get all the data.”
It seems that the show’s numbers have now been tabulated and, given the large cast and European locales, a fourth season didn’t make financial sense for the channel.
EPIX’s only other remaining scripted series, Get Shorty, has already been renewed for a third season. The channel has new series on the horizon however. They include Batman prequel Pennyworth, Perpetual Grace LTD, Godfather of Harlem, and Belgravia.
