The sci-fi drama will not be back for Season 4.
July 21, 2018
It appears as if Colony has been cancelled after three seasons. The sad news comes just days before the sci-fi drama's season finale - which will now serve as its series ender.
The writing appeared to be on the wall when fans noticed a lack of representation at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, where the show has been known to have a regular presence. A tweet by Wes Tooke, who wrote numerous episodes each season, expressed sadness that they won't be able to finish their story.
The series had a solid run on USA Network, at one time ranking as cable television's most-watched scripted series on Thursday nights. Viewership has tapered off, however, with Season 3 hitting series lows that were obviously not up to the network's expectations.
Set in the near future where Los Angeles becomes occupied by outside invaders, Colony follows a former FBI agent and his wife as they risk everything to protect their family and bring liberty back to the people of earth.
I’m sorry we won’t be able to finish the story of #colony, but I’m grateful for the work we did. Thanks to the cast and crew and especially the fans who made it all worthwhile. As always, the mistakes are ours; anything that remains belongs to you.— Wes Tooke (@WesTooke) July 22, 2018
The networks deserve every bit of misery they get - there's just no point in getting 'into' any sort of show that doesn't resolve its story line at the end of its 47 minutes. Thankfully Netflix, Amazon, HBO and SHO seem to have a clue.
You can at least give it an ending instead of letting fans hanging!!!
This happens time & time again with majority of TV shows. Its not a game of football were you can get rid of the coach because he's not performing. So what that the audience numbers drop off for one or two weeks, It will pick up again.
