FX has put a lid on “Tyrant” after three seasons.
The drama about the Middle East starring Adam Rayner, Moran Atias, Ashraf Barhom, Jennifer Finnigan, Anne Winters and Noah Silver, among many others, has already aired its final episode, according to Variety.
FX CEO John Landgraf announced the news via a statement, saying he commends the effort exerted by the series' creators in producing the show. He also thanked the show's studio partners for taking the project.
While fans of the series might be sad about its cancellation, there is still a bit of hope. Fox 21 Television Studios President Bert Salke has hinted at efforts to find a new home for the show.
In a statement, Salke said: “We feel the show is a gem and we'd love to find a way to keep it in production.”
The final episode of the third season gave closure to the issues posed in the series, so fans who have stuck with the show will get a satisfying ending should it not get picked up.
Meanwhile, some of the show's stars have taken to social media to extend their thanks to the fans and to say how much they will miss being part of the series.
Cameron Gharaee said in a tweet: “Also would like to say how much I love you all for watching. Tyrant has been an incredible journey for all of us.”
Fans are equally sad about the show's cancellation, and some of them have already taken it upon themselves to reach out to networks and online streaming sites to ask for the “Tyrant's” renewal. One tweeted to the show's account, saying: “If you push for a Netflix, Hulu or Amazon account, you will continue to have a viewer in me. Make it happen.”
