AMC’s drama Rubicon will not be returning for a second season.
The original series Rubicon, starring James Badge Dale, Arliss Howard and Miranda Richardson, has been canceled, the network announced.
“Rubicon gave us an opportunity to tell a rich and compelling story, and we’re proud of the series,” AMC said. “This was not an easy decision, but we are grateful to have had the opportunity to work with such a phenomenally talented and dedicated team.”
Unlike AMC’s other series, Mad Men and The Walking Dead, Rubicon had a small fan base, but never caught on with the majority of viewers. Rubicon was initially the most-watched original series, but the fans didn’t stick around.
Called “24 for intelligent people” by one fan, Rubicon is a conspiracy show which features Will Travers (played by Dale) as a code breaker for a private intelligence company. It has many twists, turns (and four leaf clovers), which all may have proved too confusing for the mass population.
The first season of Rubicon featured 13 episodes, with the season finale and final episode airing on October 17, 2010.
