Amazon Axes The Dangerous Book For Boys After One Season

Posted by at 2:46 pm on August 2, 2018

Amazon has opted not to order a second season of Bryan Cranston’s family comedy-drama The Dangerous Book For Boys. The decision comes four months after the series’ first season was released.

Created by Cranston and Greg Mottola based on the book by Conn and Hal Iggulden, the series follows the McKenna family as they cope with the untimely passing of Patrick (Chris Diamantopoulos), their patriarch and a whimsical inventor. His death has left the family reeling, but hope appears in the form of a book called The Dangerous Book for Boys that Patrick created as a handbook to help his three sons. The book is a how-to guide for childhood that inspires fantasies for his youngest son, Wyatt (Gabriel Bateman). While in his fantasy world, Wyatt reconnects with his father and learns life skills that help him navigate the real world.

It is largely these fantasies that make the show difficult to produce as each of them requires building a whole new world, with new sets and costumes. The series also starred Erinn Hayes as the boys’ mom, Drew Logan Powell and Kyan Zielinski as other sons, and Swoosie Kurtz as the grandmother. Diamantopoulos also played the role of Patrick’s twin brother.
