'Tyrant' to End Run With Season 3
It's the end of the road for FX drama Tyrant.
The cable network announced Wednesday that tonight's season finale would be its series finale.
The drama starring Adam Rayner, Jennifer Finnigan and, in season three, Chris Noth, was never an out-of-the-box ratings hit for FX. The drama wrapped its sophomore run with an average of 2.47 million total viewers and 1 million adults 18-49 when factoring in seven days of DVR. Last week's penultimate episode of season three drew just 830,000 live viewers. This season has been averaging 1.5 million total viewers with three days of DVR.
For Gordon, meanwhile, the news comes as the prolific producer has opted to take a year sabbatical in Spain and will not be contributing scripts to Showtime's Homeland, where he remains an executive producer. He next has Fox's reboot of 24, the Corey Hawkins starrer 24: Legacy.
