Fox cancels Prodigal Son after season 2
The news about the cancellation comes even before the premiere of the second season finale on May 18
Fox Entertainment has cancelled Prodigal Son after two seasons. The news comes even before the premiere of the second season finale on May 18.
An insider with knowledge of the situation termed the decision a 'difficult' one, but went on to say that the show’s ratings did not justify a third season, reports Variety.
The series follows Tom Payne's character Malcolm Bright, a criminal profiler with a rare talent for getting inside the minds of killers. Bright had learned how killers think, as his father, Dr Martin Whitly (Michael Sheen), was a notorious serial killer known as 'The Surgeon.' Bright teams up with New York Police Department to help them solve puzzling murders.
Prodigal Son also stars Lou Diamond Phillips, Aurora Perrineau, Frank Harts, Keiko Agena, Halston Sage, Bellamy Young, and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
Chris Fedak and Sam Sklaver created the series and serve as executive producers, showrunners and writers on the show. Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter also serve as executive producers via Berlanti Productions. Prodigal Son is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros Television and Fox Entertainment.
The first two seasons of Prodigal Son also streams on Colors Infinity for viewers in India.
