FX is sadly cancelling The Bridge.
The network announced today that they have decided to not move forward with a third season of the series. The show was never able to gain back the 3 million viewers who tuned into the season premiere. The Bridge was recently averaging around 1.2 million viewers and 0.4 rating among adults 18-49. Both seasons of the show did well on average and was received well by audiences. Despite the fact that it was doing well it failed to create any award buzz which other shows were successful at. The show also struggled to gain a huge following compared to the other cable crime drama shows.
Based on the popular Danish-Swedish series of the same name, the series followed two detectives on opposite sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. The Bridge starred Demián Bichir and Diane Kruger as the two detectives working along the U.S./Mexico border.
“We thank our partners at FX for their tireless efforts in developing and launching The Bridge with us,” read a statement. “From its fresh, unique voice to its deep and diverse ensemble cast, this is a series that we are all very proud of,” said Shine America, which co-produced the series, in a statement. They are hoping to revive the show on another network.
