FX Cancels Diane Kruger's 'The Bridge' After Two Seasons

The network decides not to move forward with the drama series which was well received by critics, but failed to attract audience.

AceShowbiz - FX is tearing down "The Bridge (2013)" after two seasons. The network has announced that it decided not to order a third season of the drama series, which is based on the popular Danish-Swedish series of the same name.

"We thank our partners at FX for their tireless efforts in developing and launching 'The Bridge' with us," production company Shine America said Tuesday, October 21. "From its fresh, unique voice to its deep and diverse ensemble cast, this is a series that we are all very proud of."

The drama starred Diane Kruger and Demian Bichir as two detectives on opposite sides of the U.S.-Mexico border who team up to hunt down a serial killer operating on both sides of the countries. Both seasons received critical acclaims, though the show never garnered any Emmy or Golden Globe nominations.

The good reviews didn't help the show's ratings, with the second and now last season drawing 1 million viewers and a 0.3 rating in adults 18-49 demo. It's small compared to FX's hit series like "American Horror Story" and "Sons of Anarchy".

Words are producers Shine America will try to find a new home for "The Bridge".
