Terra Nova” is no more — at least on Fox.

The Steven Spielberg-produced dinosaur drama has not been picked up for a second season, the network confirms to TheWrap. 20th Century Fox Television, the studio behind the series, is currently looking for a new network home for the show.

The series got off to a tumultuous start even before its September 2011 premiere — with a reportedly runaway budget and a canceled preview in May 2011.

The show proceeded to drew lukewarm ratings: The show’s premiere drew a respectable 3.1 rating/7 share in the adults 18-49 demographic and 9.2 million total viewers, but dropped off to a 2.2 rating/6 share with its December season finale.
