The drama is not being renewed, making official its cancellation after one low-rated season. “Low Winter Sun,” which wrapped its 10-episode run in September, marks just the second AMC scripted drama not to receive a season-season order, following 2010′s Rubicon.
The co-production between Endemol Studios and AMC Studios was based on the two-part 2006 British miniseries that starred Mark Strong, who reprised his role in the U.S. redo. Chris Mundy was written and executive produced by Chris Mundy. AMC liked what it saw originally, picking it up to pilot in May 2012 and ordering it to series that December. But after drawing 2.5 million viewers in its series premiere in August following the the first of Breaking Bad‘s final eight episodes, the ratings dropped off.
Friday’s news comes a couple of weeks after AMC renewed its Western drama Hell On Wheels for a fourth season and 13 episodes. It also has two new dramas in the works: Turn and Halt & Catch Fire.
