It is being reported by The Hollywood Reporter that FX has cancelled Kindred after one season. The drama released its 8-episode freshman run in December as an 'FX on Hulu' original, receiving a mixed reception from critics but faring better overall with audience scores.

Based on the Octavia E. Butler novel of the same name, the series follows young, Black aspiring writer Dana James, who has uprooted her life to move to Los Angeles looking to claim a future that feels all her own. Before she even settles into her new home, Dana finds herself being mysteriously pulled back and forth in time to a 19th century plantation, where she learns secrets about her family's past.
