The USA Network has cancelled Damnation after one season and 10 episodes, writes TV Series Finale.
The show, which premiered on November 7, 2017, starred Killian Scott as a small-town preacher in the 1930s who leads a farm strike against the area’s corporate interests.
Based loosely on real-life events, Damnation received mixed reviews from the critics, netting a score of just 58 out of a possible 100 at RottenTomatoes.com. Eleven of 19 critics surveyed by the site said they liked the show.
“Damnation‘s complex character driven mystery is intriguing, though it occasionally feels like homework,” states RottenTomatoes.com, summarizing the critical response.
TV Series Finale writes that the ratings were also so-so with Damnation ranking sixth in overall viewers among USA Network’s original shows.
“While it could have gone either way, the cancellation isn’t shocking,” writes TV Series Finale.
The show’s season one (and now series) final episode aired on January 18, 2018.
