It is being reported by Deadline that Shantaram has been cancelled by Apple TV+ after one season. The news comes just hours before the release of the drama's freshman finale, which will now serve as its series ender. The show garnered a decidedly mixed critical reception, though viewer feedback leaned more towards the positive.

Based on the bestselling novel by Gregory David Roberts, the series stars Charlie Hunnam as Lin Ford, a fugitive hiding out in the vibrant and chaotic city of Bombay in the 1980s. Alone in an unfamiliar city, Lin struggles to avoid the trouble he's running from. After meeting and falling for an enigmatic woman, he must decide between freedom or love and the complications that come with it.
