The period drama won't return for Season 3.
October 1, 2016
It is being reported that NBC has officially pulled the plug on Aquarius after two seasons. The David Duchovny drama, in which he played a cop on the trail of Charles Manson, had a tough go of things throughout its two-summer run on the network. Despite a promising start last year, the show never managed to find the mass appeal it was looking for.
Aquarius premiered solidly for NBC back in the summer of 2015 and was rewarded with an early Season 2 renewal. When ratings tapered off, it was quietly moved to Saturdays where it would finish out its run. The network remained optimistic, though, and stuck to its word to bring the show back for another season in 2016.
Unfortunately the show struggled once again this summer, forcing NBC to once-again push the ratings-challenged series off to Saturday nights in order to offset its low viewership numbers. Not surprisingly, a third season was not looking good, and back in August NBC president Jennifer Salke admitted as much, stating that bringing Aquarius back once again would be "tough".

The sun will explode in 1 billion years. You can guarantee that it will end then. Or are you one of those people who reads the last chapter first. Tv is not about guarantees but about the show being good.

Should have had more gay sex. An evil cult is not complete without gay sex and incest.
The plot and story were shit anyways. The least they could give us is some worthwhile sex scenes to make it tolerable.

great acting, great writing, but NBC killed this show before it could take off. it is really too bad, this show would do great on netflix

The show had potential, but never knew what it was. Is it about Manson? Is it about civil rights? Is it a procedural? Is it all of the above, sort of, and none of that too? Manson has a fascinating history that this show made boring. The acting was great, but that can only take you so far, when you can't commit to what the show is or what it's about.

I watched 2 episodes and didn't care for it. I never understood why anyone would want to watch a series based on Charles Manson.

The next time I start a show I'd like some kind of guarantee that it has an ending.

This is literally the first that I'm hearing of this show. Not a joke. I seriously didn't know it was a thing.

Trying to make a pc show from an age not pc. All tv made for advertising consumers and the show did not win over the "Dancing With the Stars" crowd. Tie-in the Zodiac, the weird cults floating around then, and later Son of Sam and you would have something strange maybe worth watching. Maybe
