Axed: Prodigal Son

Psychological crime drama with Tom Payne and Michael Sheen ending at 2 seasons.

US drama Prodigal Son has been axed after two seasons.

The decision to cancel the psychological crime drama instead of moving forward with a third season is said to have been a difficult one for FOX, but reportedly came down to ratings.

The final episode of season 2 screens next week in the USA will now serve as the series finale.

The Greg Berlanti-produced series stars Tom Payne as a former FBI profiler hired by the NYPD after a spate of killings that mirror those of a jailed killer who is also his father (Michael Sheen).

It screens in Australia on FOX One.

  1. Damn I really love this show. It better not end with a cliffhanger. I read that Fox were only going to renew 1 show between that & Resident. Since Resident is longer running thought it would be the one renewed.
