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.

The management at Starz really need to get their heads out of their collective @$$€$. They had arguably one of the best properties of the genre and cancel it. Perhaps I'd they'd put some effort into proper marketing more return. That said I have cancelled my Starz subscription. I hope another network picks it up.

I think sometimes these writers don't think out story plans. I think the the story plots showed they kinda wrote themselves into a corner with little room to go.

Typical. A quality, thinking person's show and it gets canned. Hopefully, Netflix or Amazon Prime will pick it up.

Another quirky, intelligent, thoughtful, innovative show.....bites the dust. Disappointment.

I loved this show! Sci-fi shows never last - and they're the best ones. Yes, you had to concentrate a bit, so is that why only mindless drivel gets renewed?

That sucks. This is a great show.

THIS was a great show , it reminded me of a drama type fringe show. Starz keeps blowing it.

First season was good.
Second season i've had to force myself to watch.
I'm glad it's over.
