'Political Animals' Won't Get Second Season


'Political Animals' Won't Get Second Season


Though the Sigourney Weaver-starring drama gets rave reviews, USA Network decides not to order more episodes of the show due to its soft ratings.

"Political Animals" won't return for a second season. USA Network has announced that it won't order more episodes of the Greg Berlanti and Laurence Mark-created show, which has garnered critical acclaims.

The political drama was originally billed as a "limited series event," but Berlanti hinted there was potential that the show could go beyond its six-episode run. However, the network now decides to stick to the initial plans due to its soft ratings.

"We are proud of 'Political Animals', our miniseries that attracted critical acclaim and impacted the cultural conversation this summer," USA Network says in a statement. "It was a pleasure to work with Greg Berlanti and Laurence Mark and a powerful cast led by Sigourney Weaver. We look forward to collaborating again with these immensely talented creatives."

On his Twitter, Berlanti wrote Friday, November 2, "Thanks everyone for the nice tweets regarding Political Animals. It remains one of the best and most rewarding experiences of my life..." He stated in another post, "The cast, the crew, writers, studio and USA were all a dream to work with. We all got to make what we set out to. Couldn't be more proud!"

"Political Animals", which follows the personal and professional life of a former First Family, premiered in July to 3.8 total viewers. It averaged 3.2 million viewers.

It's the latest cancellation by USA Network as the network recently also pulled the plug on freshman drama comedy "Common Law" and sophomore legal drama "Fairly Legal".
