No Season 3 for the sci-fi thriller.
February 11, 2019
It looks like Starz has cancelled Counterpart after two seasons. Creator Justin Marks made the announcement on his Twitter account this morning, with the sad news coming just days ahead of the sci-fi drama's sophomore finale, which airs this Sunday.
The series premiered on the cable network in 2017 with a two-season order out of the gate. While it garnered high critical acclaim and found a core loyal fanbase, it ultimately failed to attract a substantial audience during its time on the air. Producer MRC, for its part, is said to be shopping the series to other possible outlets.
Counterpart follows a lowly employee at a Berlin-based United Nations spy agency who, after learning that the organization he works for is safeguarding a secret crossing into a parallel Earth, finds himself mixed up in a shadowy world of danger, conspiracy, and double-cross. This mysterious world hidden beneath the surface of everyday existence brings up questions about fate and his identity. And after meeting his near-identical counterpart, Howard realizes the only man he can trust is the parallel version of himself.

First season was paced and executed so perfectly. Second season was a bit of a mess in my opinion. Cancellation is due to viewing figures and at the end of the day, it just never got enough. Oh well.

Berkey 99---I like Outlander! It does NOT have that many nude scenes. It is actually entertaining and educational due to its story line/history.

Mr. Bezos, here is another show for Prime to carry. It seems Stars is more interested in airing crap like Outlander. Maybe if Counterpart had nude scenes and bad screenplay adaptations like Outlander it would still be on the air.

@Rando - your comment obviously highlights your low IQ, if you thought it was boring, its probably because you find shows like The Big Bang to be highly intellectual. #savecounterpart

Boring show with a stupid premise.. good riddance!

Equation used by the execs at STARZ:
Well written, well acted, Intelligent TV Series = CANCELLATION!
The executes are absolutely clueless. STARZ is going to be the network known for cancelling some of the best shows available. Just like they did with "BOSS" a few years back. I understand with Spartacus it had run it course but Counterpart had a lot more life.

Wow. Just wow. This is easily the best show that Starz has (had) and they go and cancel it. Stupid. JK Simmons might have seen a thing or two, but we're going to see one less thing or two of him and that's messed up - he was terrific in Counterpart. Maybe Netflix or Amazon picks this up... hopefully.
