Deadline reports that TNT has decided to cancel King & Maxwell after one season. The 10th and final episode aired on August 12th.
The show revolves around a pair of Secret Service agents (Jon Tenney and Rebecca Romijn) who opened their own detective agency after they were fired. Michael O’Keefe, Chris Butler, and Ryan Hurst round out the cast.
King & Maxwell remained fairly consistent during its 10 episode run and averaged 3.11 million viewers. The premiere attracted 3.52 million viewers and the finale drew 3.50 million.
While it wasn’t as big a hit as Rizzoli & Isles (5.7 million) and Major Crimes (4.9 million), it wasn’t that far behind Perception (3.5 million).
What do you think? Are you sorry that there won’t be a second season for King & Maxwell? How do you think it compares to the other TNT dramas?
I am displeased with the ability that TNT cannot see that they have a hit. One more season would tell the tale. Why not take the risk?
The chemistry between all actors is fantastic. I am very disappointed that the series won’t have more to follow. I finally find a show I like and it is canceled
I live in the UK, I loved King and Maxwell and I’m gutted that it was cancelled. There was so much that the characters had to offer, it was a big mistake to dump it!
I’m really sorry to hear this show was cancelled so quickly; it’s such a fun show to watch. We just started seeing this in Netherland in October but when I saw that Rebecca Romijn was also in the new series The Librarians I knew not to get attached to King and Maxwell. While I thoroughly enjoyed the movies The Librarian I find the series The Librarians to be far less impressive. I’d much prefer to see King and Maxwell brought back. It’s really too bad they decided to cancel King and Maxwell; the show deserved more of a chance!
I thoroughly enjoyed watching King and Maxwell. I think more episodes delving into their private lives would entice more viewers.
Wow that stinks that you cancelled King and Maxwell i loved that show, I even taped it when i wasn’t home in time to watch. BOOOOOOOO TNT……
