TNT cancels Mob City
Frank Darabont's forties LAPD drama, Mob City, will not be renewed for a second season...
Mob City, Frank Darabont's TV follow-up project to The Walking Dead, will not be renewed for a second season.
Too few viewers is the culprit. Ratings tell us that the Mob City finale managed to attract only 1.4 million. Did it help that the series was aired in two-hour chunks over three weeks of December, not a traditional period for debuting new drama? Perhaps not.
The end of Mob City is not the end of TNT's relationship with director/writer/producer Frank Darabont though, a network spokesperson had this to say about the non-renewal: "Mob City was created as a three-week television event and we are incredibly proud of the six hours we presented of this remarkable drama. Although the ratings of the limited series haven’t warranted more hours we are eager to work with Frank Darabont again and were delighted to bring the vibrant world of Mob City to life."
What form will that new Darabont/TNT collaboration take? We'll keep you posted.
