Earlier today, it was announced that the Tyrant TV show had been cancelled after three seasons. Tonight’s finale is also the last episode. The cancellation doesn’t come as much of a surprise but, would you watch a fourth season on a channel other than FX?
Tyrant revolves around the youngest son of a dictator who returns to his war-torn country in the Middle-East with his American family. This season, the drama’s cast includes Adam Rayner, Jennifer Finnigan, Moran Atias, Ashraf Barhom, Noah Silver, Alexander Karim, Cameron Gharaee, Melia Kreiling, and Chris Roth.
The series debuted back in June 2014 to a 0.61 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 2.1 million viewers. While the demo remained relatively steady during the first season, viewership fell off quite a bit. The first season ended up averaging a 0.55 rating with 1.55 million.
With such weak ratings, it’s no surprise that FX decided to cancel the series. However, there’s still a possibility that there could be a fourth season elsewhere.
In a statement, Fox 21 Television Studios President Bert Salke, said, “We feel the show is a gem and we’d love to find a way to keep it in production. That said, we want to be realistic about its prospects. So for its loyal audience, tonight’s episode will be a satisfying end should the series not find another home, but also provides interesting possibilities should we be able to continue on some other platform.”
What do you think? Should it have been cancelled? Would you watch a fourth season of Tyrant on a another channel?
