It looks like it’s the end of the line for courier Frank Martin. Transporter: The Series, which aired for two seasons on TNT, has been cancelled and won’t be returning for a third season.
Based on the feature film series, Transporter is an action-adventure TV show which follows Frank Martin (Chris Vance) — a professional “transporter.” He’s paid to pick up and deliver people or cargo from anywhere in the world. The rest of the cast has included François Berléand, Violante Placido, Andrea Osvárt, Charly Hübner, and Delphine Chanéac.
An international series, Transporter aired for two seasons and 24 episodes between October 2014 and February 2015. Airing on Saturday nights, the action series did poorly on TNT in its first season and the numbers were lower in season two.
There’s been no word on the show’s fate in nearly a year. In a recent interview, executive producer Frank Spotnitz said, “I don’t think it’s going to come back, sadly… It did really well in Canada, but I think in France it was shown immediately after the Charlie Hebdo shootings — I don’t think anybody was watching drama, so it was bad timing unfortunately.”
Though he’s been busy with new projects like The Man in the High Castle, Spotnitz love for the series to return someday, saying, “Everything, I do, I have to love it — I can’t fake it! So yeah, I would.”
What do you think? Are you sorry that Transporter: The Series hasn’t been renewed for a third season? Would you like to see it return some day?
I call BS on the cancellation. Netflix should pick it up. Sick of seeing the same type of shows over and over.
I vote for Season 3, if and when it ever happens. Please get Mr. Martin back on the road where he belongs.
This is crap the best show I have watched in a long time and it cancelled why why why
That’s bull get interested in something good and as usual they cancelled it
Very disappointed to hear this show isn’t coming back. I really enjoyed it. Why do so many good show get cancelled? Makes it not worth getting invested in them 🙁
Real disappointed..enjoyed the series & was looking forward to more.
Great show. Really enjoyed the series. I am disappointed the show is cancelled.
I really really enjoyed transporter Andrew was looking forward to another year I wish they had not ended it with a cliffhanger would like to know what happened I’m rather sad which another network would pick it up maybe that will happen at least I can hope
This was agreat show and looked forward to seeing it on TNTon Saturday nites asfar as know it had good ratings I really wanted to see the out come or season2 I’m hopeful that TNT will rethink there position or another network will pick up Transporter the Series Fred
This is another show I like and is now cancelled. I should start watching the shows I do not like and I will not be disappointed if they are cancelled.
Was one of my favorite shows. Very well done. Hope somebody else is smart enough to pick it up.
It is unfair and bad to leave Season 2 on cliffhanger. At least, something must be done in order to make-up the mess of the last episode of Season 2(“Endgame”). I really hope, this might happen in other TV Series(Hawaii 5-0, NCIS/NCIS: LA and other TV shows became one and problems in one of them were solved in the other). I am really surprised, that the Charlie Hebdo shootings were the real problem, why “Transporter” wasn’t broadcasted in a better time? The French people do not watch only “Transporter”, right? And these other TV shows weren’t canceled due to this.… Read more »
My wife and I did enjoy this show and we were hoping for another season.
OK, guys come on, you are better than this. You are reporting this like its official, but the article says “I don’t think it’s going to come back”. The key word is THINK. While I THINK the series is dead, I hate it when news sites make assumptions. Lets go with the FACTS.
In the first sentence they say “it looks like”…The article betrays a hesitation.
Very sad. Maybe another channel can pick it up? Huh?
This is what I hope too -another channel to buy it, as it happened with the second season(the first was made by RTL as far as I remember). Germany planned to buy and continue it, but for now nothing, absolutely nothing is certain. The TV Show deserves to be continued…or at least, the cliffhanger from the last episode of Season II to find its solution.
never knew it was on, found it by accident, watched it and was hooked. Agreed with all the comments above as far as a different time, more advertisment, maybe different channel.
