USA Network Cancels Damnation After a Single Season

It’s one and out for USA Network drama Damnation. The NBCUniversal-owned cable network has opted to cancel the low-rated series starring Killian Scott and Logan Marshall-Green.

Netflix had boarded the Depression-era drama as a co-producer to help offset the costs of what USA described as an “epic saga of the secret history of the 1930s American heartland.” The streaming giant had first-run rights for the series outside of the U.S.

Damnation premiered Nov. 7, launching to poor reviews. With live-plus-3 returns, Damnation bowed to a not-insignificant 1.4 million viewers. Subsequent episodes, however, dropped dramatically. The latest to see time-shifting adds, which originally aired Jan. 11, barely topped 500,000 viewers.

USA’s scripted roster currently includes Colony, Falling Water, Mr. Robot, Queen of the South, Shooter, Suits and the forthcoming Unsolved. Worth noting: Netflix is a co-producer on Shooter and anthology Unsolved, while Amazon has a deal for Falling Water.
