The drama will not return for Season 4.
September 7, 2016
Ahead of tonight's season finale, FX has announced that Tyrant will not be returning, cancelling the summer drama after three seasons on the air.
“It’s very difficult to find common ground with other people whose stories we do not know or understand,” said FX CEO John Landgraf in a released statement. “The creators of Tyrant have done their utmost over three seasons to tell American audiences a tiny fraction of the many gripping, human stories coursing through the Middle East today. We want to thank Howard Gordon, Chris Keyser and their talented team of collaborators, including all the writers, directors, cast and crew, as well as our studio partners at Fox 21 Television Studios, for taking on Tyrant’s tremendously ambitious story with such profound dedication and respect.”
While never a ratings hit for the network, Tyrant was a decent performer over the majority of its run. The move to end the show comes after a third season where viewership tapered off quite significantly from what it was drawing in seasons 1 and 2.
While today's cancellation comes as sudden, producers have stated that tonight's series finale should prove to be a satisfying ending for the show's devoted fans.

Tyrant is superb programming. I am disappointed it has been cancelled. I believe this show would do very well on another network.

Realize this show started in 2014... the year when EVERY new show HAD to apparently contain a gay "twist". I mean there wasn't a single new 2014 show that did not have some homosexual aspect to it. ..... now, before I'm bashed.. there's NOTHING wrong with homosexual storylines or characters, heck Walking Dead even did it in 2014, and did it well. But it was just so prevalent in 2014 it was annoying. Tyrant was a hold over of that year.... started the storyline and had to maintain it... even if it wasn't a good storyline.

After the first gay kiss, I stopped watching the show

I am a faithful viewer, but given all the other shows on at the same time I usually watched the encore. Now days rating cannot be based only on initial air times. I also wached it on the fxnow app. In any case, sorry writers, THAT WAS NOT A SATISFACTORY ENDING!! How could you even call it that! One more season, I honestly thought there would be one more and that would be the final season. Anyway, very unsatisfied viewer.

I am so totally disappointed this show has been cancelled! This was my favorite show and I looked so forward to it each week. It kept me thinking that (to quote Leila Al-Fayeed) "maybe" something would happen to turn the tide and that 'reason' would prevail. I really would like to see the story continue so I really REALLY hope someone (Netflix?) picks it up and continues it.

I really enjoyed watching season one and sorta liked watching season two. For me it went downhill pretty quickly by the end of season two. I had the entire third season on my DVR and was planning to binge watch it, but now after finding out its been canceled and reading the other reviews here it seems like I'll enjoy deleting the season more than I would watching it.
