No Season 2 for the novel-based drama.
January 25, 2022
It is being reported that American Rust has been cancelled by Showtime after one season. The news comes less than two months after the drama wrapped its 9-episode freshman run, which ultimately garnered a mixed reception.
Based on Philipp Meyer's hit debut novel, the series follows a complicated and compromised police chief in a Pennsylvania Rust Belt town full of good people who can make bad choices. When the son of the woman he loves is accused of murder, he must choose how far he is willing to go to protect him.

I'm watching American Rust again and I cannot figure out why Showtime cancelled this. With the great cast, interesting story line, I was really looking forward to Season 2. Why Showtime?

You didn’t even give it a chance.
A great show, with a wonderful cast.

The theme that American dreams, traditional life narratives... are not doing well, but rather point to a Dystopian future is discomforting to media executives.

PLEASE BRING BACK THIS SHOW!!! It’s so good, entertaining I want to know what happens…. All of this other crap gets renewed that is STUPID! But this doesn’t ? Ridiculous!! This had an ending that wasn’t “the end”… only part of a beginning that I would like to know what happens…… Renew this show

The suits at Showtime are completely clueless. Rust was a good TV that would have only gotten better with a second season. Every bit of "Woke" crap gets renewed but anything that is entertaining without a social agenda must be terminated.

Absolutely love Maura Tierny and so loved this show. Let’s see season 2 please

I’m really beginning to hate Showtime right now. First, they ruined the Dexter ending, then no return date for City on the Hill and now they canceled American Rust. Boo Showtime.

Interesting. Baldwins's cancelled Rust was about someone accused of murder (and on the run with grandfather) that was supposed to be a good person.

Why? Great show, great actors. But stupid comedy shows get re-upped? Boo showtime, wrong call!!

Too bad. I really liked this show. the pacing was a little slow, but it picked up mid-season. By season's end, the characters were starting to shine through. It should have had a second season, so it could catch on.
