USA Network Turns Down Political Animals Season 2

at . Comments

Political Animals will not be returning for a second season.

The Sigourney Weaver-driven drama earned critical reviews, but only averaged 2.1 million viewers per week during its six episode run this summer. And TV Line now confirms that there will be no more stories told about Elaine Barrish and her family.

“We are proud of Political Animals, our miniseries that attracted critical acclaim and impacted the cultural conversation this summer,” USA said 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.”

Earlier this week, the network also canceled Fairly Legal and Common Law.
