It was announced this morning that Quarry has been cancelled at Cinemax after just one season. Word came this morning from co-creator Michael D. Fuller, who made the announcement via a post on his website.
Fuller noted that early work on a second season of the show had already begun before his team found out that it was being shut down. He cited that despite solid ratings and critical reception, a re-branding at Cinemax and a regime change at parent company HBO were the primary factors for the cancellation.
Based on the novels of Max Allan Collins, Quarry followed a Marine who returns home to Memphis from Vietnam in 1972 only to find himself shunned by loved ones and vilified by the public. Struggling to deal with his experiences at war, he is drawn into a network of corruption and killing that spans the length of the Mississippi River.
