Breaking: FX KO's Lights Out

Patrick “Lights” Leary will retire again — this time involuntarily — in light of FX’s decision not to renew the boxing drama Lights Out for a second round.

“FX will not be moving forward with a second season of the critically acclaimed drama series Lights Out,” a network rep says in a statement.

Despite its aforementioned acclaim, Lights Out struggled in the ratings ring against a host of heavyweights, namely CBS’ buzzy The Good Wife and NBC’s Parenthood. TNT’s gritty Southland surely also got in a punch or two.

FX will air the final two episodes of Lights Out‘s freshman run in the show’s regularly scheduled time slot, Tuesdays at 10/9c, on March 29 and April 5. Hopefully, we’ll get to see the Lights/Death Row rematch before it’s lights out for the drama.
