Aquarius Cancelled

Aquarius Cancelled After Two Seasons

The age of Aquarius has set at NBC: The Peacock network has cancelled the David Duchovny-fronted summer series after two low-rated seasons, TVLine has learned.

The show’s fate was all but cemented in early August when NBC announced it was relocating the Charles Manson-themed period drama from its Thursday perch to the TV cemetery known as Saturday Night. At the time, entertainment president Jennifer Salke conceded the series faced “tough” odds of seeing a third season.

One potential silver lining for Duchovny fans: Aquarius‘ demise could make scheduling The X-Files‘ inevitable 11th season easier. Last month, Fox entertainment president David Madden confirmed that “significant talks” were underway with Duchovny and co-star Gillian Anderson. “We would obviously love to do another season [but] schedules are hard,” he conceded. “We’re working hard to get this done.”

Were you one of Aquarius‘ few loyal fans? If so, weight in below with your thoughts on the show’s demise.
