Z: The Beginning of Everything Amazon has pulled the plug on "Z: The Beginning of Everything," which stars Christina Ricci as Zelda Fitzgerald, after just one season.

That's surprising news since, according to The Wrap, the series had previously been renewed for a second season and writers were already working on new scripts.

The show, about the just-as-famous wife of "The Great Gatsby" author F. Scott Fitzgerald, debuted in January.

It's based on the 2013 book about the Jazz Age icon, "Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald."

David Hoflin ("Crossbones") costarred as F. Scott Fitzgerald and David Strathairn as Zelda's father.
