NBC Cancels Aquarius

By Allison Moore

Washington, D.C. (October 2, 2016) -- NBC has cancelled the summertime drama, Aquarius, after two seasons, reports Variety Magazine.

The show starred David Duchovny as a fictional Los Angeles police detective in 1967 who investigates the Charles Manson family who later were responsible for a series of brutal murders in the LA area.

NBC hoped the show, which debuted in May 2015, would piggyback off the growing cultural interest in the turbulent 1960s as well as the nation's ongoing obsession with Charles Manson.

However, Aquarius never really clicked with critics or viewers, capturing just 1.2 million viewers in the now series finale, which aired September 10, writes The Hollywood Reporter. 

The publication says the show's cancellation could pave the way for Duchovny to commit to more episodes of The X Files on Fox. Stay tuned.
