Starz is saying goodbye to Counterpart. Deadline reports the network has cancelled the TV show after two seasons.
The sci-fi drama centers on a low-level bureaucrat, Howard Silk (J.K. Simmons), who toils away in relative obscurity at a United Nations spy outfit based in Berlin, Germany. The cast also includes Olivia Williams, Harry Lloyd, Nicholas Pinnock, Nazanin Boniadi, and Sara Serraiocco.
A Look at the Ratings:
It’s not entirely surprising that Starz has cancelled Counterpart. The series has taken a major dip in the ratings during it second season. So far, the show is earning an average rating of .04 in the 18-49 demo and only 225,00 viewers. That’s a nearly 50% drop in the ratings since season one.
However, while Counterpart won’t continue on Starz, there is still some hope for fans. According to Deadline, the show’s producer is shopping it around to other networks.
