FX has cancelled The Bastard Executioner after one season. Showrunner Kurt Sutter announced the news this morning by placing ads in the Hollywood trades, thanking the cast and crew after confirming that the series would not return for a second season.
Sutter cited a lukewarm reception from viewers as the reason for the show ending. Its premiere episode drew moderate ratings, but its numbers failed to see growth over the course of its 10-episode run.
