It is being reported that The Brothers Sun has been cancelled by Netflix after just one season. The news comes less than two months after the action dramedy released its 8-episode freshman run.

Its January debut was met with a positive reception from both critics and viewers, but its audience numbers likely fell below the streamer's expectations. It did spend five weeks in Netflix's Top 10 list for English language series, but only made it as high as #2.

In the show, the head of a powerful Taiwanese triad is shot by a mysterious assassin, forcing his eldest son, legendary killer Charles "Chairleg" Sun to travel to Los Angeles in order to protect his mother and brother. But as Taipei's deadliest societies and a new rising faction fight for dominance - Charles, his brother and their mother must heal the wounds caused by their separation and figure out what brotherhood and family truly mean before one of their enemies kills them all.
