AMC, a network known for giving shows a death sentence, then offering them a last-minute reprieve (though it probably won’t in this case because seemingly no one enjoyed Low Winter Sun), has given the Detroit cop drama the ax after one season.
All the grittiness in the world couldn’t save the at-times-illogical show that seemingly ran circles around viewers for no good reason. It also failed to capitalize on Breaking Bad‘s enormous lead-in, and fell completely flat once the acclaimed series aired.
The good news is that there’s only so much Sunday night to go around, especially considering it doesn’t just belong to HBO anymore. So this clears up thirteen Sunday slots for a newer, better show, possibly one involving a morally ambiguous attorney in the American Southwest? That could be pretty cool.
