Axed: American Rust

Jeff Daniels drama ends after just a single season.

New Jeff Daniels drama American Rust has proven to be short-lived, axed at just one season by Showtime.

An adaptation of the novel of the same name by Philipp Meyer, it premiered in September.

“We can confirm that American Rust will not be moving forward with a second season,” Showtime said in a statement. “We would like to thank our partners at Boat Rocker, our talented showrunner Dan Futterman and the rest of the wonderful writers, and our amazing cast led by Jeff Daniels and Maura Tierney.”

Daniels starred as Del Harris, chief of police of a Pennsylvania Rust Belt town full of good people making bad choices. When news of a murder rips through the town, Harris must decide what lengths he is willing to take to protect the son of the woman he loves (Maura Tierney).

It screened in Australia on Paramount+.
