Fox has started making decisions about its bubble dramas.
Sources tell THR that the network was a fan of the show’s creative, but ultimately the drama starring Michael Sheen, Tom Payne and Bellamy Young never caught on with viewers. The network attempted to court eyeballs with stunt casting this season, enlisting Catherine Zeta-Jones for a heavily recurring role that did little to move Prodigal Son‘s ratings needle.
The series was created by showrunners Chris Fedak and Sam Sklaver and exec produced by Warner Bros.-based Greg Berlanti Productions.
Fox on Monday announced its first live-action pickup for 2021-22 with the second-season renewal for Call Me Kat. The network has already renewed the bulk of its animation roster, with Bob’s Burgers, Duncanville, Family Guy, The Great North and The Simpsons all set to return.
Remaining on the bubble at Fox are 911 and its Lone Star spinoff and The Resident. All three shows are produced by Disney-owned 20th Television.
New series set to join Fox’s 2021-22 schedule are The Big Leap, The Cleaning Lady, Monarch, Our Kind of People, Pivoting, This Country and an animated comedy from Dan Harmon.
With the cancellation, Berlanti’s history-making roster of live-action scripted originals shrinks to a mere 15.
