"The Bridge" has been cancelled by FX, the network announced Tuesday.
Despite a creative resurgence in its second season, "The Bridge," which starred Diane Kruger and Demian Bichir, didn't improve where it needed to the most: ratings. According to HitFix, showrunners were optimistic for a third season order from FX following the season two finale, but also had realistic expectations when it came to the size of the audience.
"Creatively they are very happy with the show. But as we all know it is a numbers game," showrunner Elwood Reid told HitFix at the time. "I really want a season three and hope I have a chance to keep telling those stories, because I can tell you I have just scratched the surface of this world and these characters."
HitFix reports that "The Bridge" production company Shine will try to shop the show elsewhere in hopes of resurrecting it on a different network (or possibly a streaming platform like Netflix). Stay tuned to see if that plan pans out.
