Welp…in news that is sure to be a bummer, it’s been confirmed by THR that PBS’ civil war mini series Mercy Street will not return for a third season.
PBS and the producers cited “the complicated nature of aligning production timelines and funding commitments” as the reason behind the show’s sudden end.
“We are extremely proud of both seasons of Mercy Street,” said Beth Hoppe, PBS chief programming executive. “Our talented executive producers, Lisa Wolfinger, David Zabel and David W. Zucker, brought to life an entertaining and historically accurate account of this time, along with the equally talented team of actors led by Josh Radnor as Dr. Jedediah Foster and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Nurse Mary Phinney; the directors, producers and crew who created a visually rich, high-quality series; and our sponsors and partners who helped make Mercy Street possible.”
Premiering in January 2016 alongside the final run of DowntonAbbey, Mercy Street marked PBS’ first original series in more than a decade. The drama opened to 3.3 million viewers and ranked as PBS’ second highest-rated drama of 2016, behind only DowntonAbbey. Season two, which kicked off in late January and wrapped March 5, drew 6.5 million viewers for the first three episodes with seven days of DVR factored in.
In other news, after much casting rumors that bounced around for months, Mary will not be playing Domino in Deadpool 2. Instead, the role will be played by Atlanta‘s Zazie Beetz.
This past Sunday aired the season 2 finale of Mercy Street on PBS, and Paige has capped Mary’s scenes to the gallery. You can view the caps by clicking the thumbnails below and if you missed the final episode, you can watch it here.
Update: The show has been cancelled and will not return for a 3rd season. More here.
