Last summer, CBS started running The Bridge, a cop drama that the network had licensed from Canada. CBS apparently had little faith in the series since they began airing it on Saturday nights with little promotion. To no surprise, the ratings were terrible. CBS pulled The Bridge off the schedule after three episodes, leaving 10 unaired.
Now, it seems Bridge won’t get a second season after all. According to THR, CTV, Entertainment One, and series creator Craig Bromell have mutually agreed not to to proceed with year two. CTV said it will work with Bromell, Bridge star Aaron Douglas, and Entertainment One on future projects, including a drama about a police drug squad that’s now in development.
The Bridge follows Frank Leo (Douglas), a charismatic cop who’s voted unanimously to become the leader of the police union. He ends up fighting crime on the streets while also battling corruption on the force. The series features Douglas, Frank Cassini, Michael Murphy, Ona Grauer, Paul Popowich, and Theresa Joy.
