The Player: NBC Trims Down Season 1 Order to Just Nine Episodes

The Player Episode Order

It’s (almost) game over for The Player.

NBC has trimmed the freshman drama’s episode order to nine, our sister site Deadline reports; Episode 9 is currently being filmed, and production will shut down once it’s completed.

The Player, which airs Thursdays at 10/9c, stars Philip Winchester as Alex Kane, a former security expert who now stops crimes of which high-rollers are betting on the outcome. The series also stars Charity Wakefield, Damon Gupton, and Wesley Snipes.
