Axed: Counterpart

Critically-acclaimed US drama Counterpart has been axed in the US after two seasons.

The series starring J.K. Simmons as a lowly cog in the bureaucratic machinery of a Berlin-based spy agency.

Showrunner and creator Justin Marks announced the news on social media, but indicated that he hopes for more.

SBS has screened Season 1 in Australia, but bumped episodes after low broadcast numbers. This week SBS also got news that The Son would conclude and The Handmaid’s Tale has been pushed back to June.

Updated: Season 2 returns Thursday, 21 February at 9.30pm, followed by single episodes weekly on Thursdays at 10.30pm. All episodes at SBS On Demand.


  1. I think this show is just too smart for most viewers. It reminds me of Westworld in its telling. Slow burning but intriguing. J K Simmons is exceptional as always.
