It is being reported that Facebook has cancelled Limetown after just one season. The sad news comes two months after the drama's freshman finale.

The original series premiered on the social network's video-on-demand service Facebook Watch in October for a 10-episode run that garnered generally favorable reviews.

Based on the mystery podcast of the same name, the show followed a public radio journalist who attempts to solve a mysterious mass disappearance of over 300 people at a neuroscience research community in Tennessee.

Today's news comes amid word that the platform is moving to focus more on unscripted fare moving forward, though to what extent is yet to be seen. The number of viewers the show attracted it not known, but the young service is likely still trying to figure out what works for their audience in terms of content.
