It is being reported that Showtime has cancelled American Gigolo after one season.

Coming three months after the drama wrapped its freshman run, the news follows the announcement by Paramount Global that Showtime will no longer operate as a standalone network. At some point this year, Showtime will be rebranded as 'Paramount+ with Showtime,' and its content will be available on the premium tier of Paramount+.

Based on the 1980 movie of the same name, the series follows Julian Kaye, who has spent the last 15 years in prison for a murder he didn't commit. After his wrongful conviction release, he navigates his complicated relationships with his former lover, his troubled mother, and the people who betrayed him. While Julian struggles to reconcile the escort he was in the past and the man he is now, a determined detective seeks to uncover the truth about the murder that sent Julian to prison, which unearths a much larger conspiracy along the way.
