USA Network has decided not to produce a second season of Political Animals, their political drama.
Though Animals was billed as a limited series, the cable channel was open to the possibility of producing a second season.
Despite featuring actors like Sigourney Weaver, Carla Gugino, James Wolk, and Ellen Burstyn, and garnering some great reviews, not enough people tuned in and the ratings were poor.
In a statement to TV Line, USA said, “We are proud of Political Animals, our mini-series that attracted critical acclaim and impacted the cultural conversation this summer. It was a pleasure to work with Greg Berlanti and Laurence Mark and a powerful cast led by Sigourney Weaver. We look forward to collaborating again with these immensely talented creatives.”
What do you think? Are you sorry that there won’t be a second season of Political Animals on USA? Why didn’t more people watch?
