It is being reported that AMC has cancelled 61st Street after one season. The cable network has scrapped plans to air the thriller's planned second season despite filming already being completed.

In the show, the investigation of a deadly drug bust in Chicago triggers events that threaten to unravel the police department's code of silence. A casualty of this is a promising high school athlete who becomes a victim of the city's infamously corrupt criminal justice system.

The move is likely related to AMC Networks' announced $400M of cost-cutting on content. A similar situation occurred with 'Moonhaven' just last month, with AMC+ reversing its renewal of the sci-fi drama. With Season 2 of 61st Street already produced, it's possible that the show could resurface on another platform in the future.
