NBC Cancels 'Aquarius' After 2 Seasons

NBC has decided to cancel its original drama series Aquarius starring David Duchovny after two seasons. The series wrapped its run on September 10, 2016.

It was surprising that NBC renewed the period drama for a second season in the first place. The first season was the first time a broadcast network released the entire season before its linear premiere. But in live viewership, the numbers weren't great which prompted a move to Saturday nights. Still, a second season was ordered. But once again, the numbers weren't great and the show was moved to Saturday nights once more. This time without the streaming numbers playing into the renewal decision NBC has opted not to order any more episodes.

The drama starred David Duchovny, Gethin Anthony, Grey Damon, Emma Dumont, Claire Holt, Ambyr Childers, Madisen Beaty, Cameron Deane Stewart, Michaela McManus, Brian F. O'Byrne and Chance Kelley.

John McNamara created the drama. He served as executive producer with Duchovny, Sera Gamble, Marty Adelstein, Vahan Moosekian, Becky Clements, Jonas Pate, Alexandra Cunningham, Melanie Greene and Rafael Yglesias. Tomorrow Studios, McNamara Moving Company and King Baby Productions produced.
