The cancellation of the martial arts drama is not a big surprise, especially when you consider the ratings. 

The series premiere snagged a healthy 3.2 demo rating on AMC when it launched in November 2015. 

It essentially dropped every episode since, with the most recent pulling in a meager 0.3 rating.

As for The Son, it will end after its upcoming second season. It is slated to launch on-air on April 24.  

The Son is a multi-generational epic telling of the story of America's birth as a superpower through the bloody rise and fall of one Texas oil empire.

It boasted a cast that was led by Pierce Brosnan, but it failed to strike a chord with both critics and audiences. 

It averaged a 0.2 rating in the demo for its first season, so this cancellation is also not that surprising.
