FX is tearing down The Bridge.
The network has decided to not move forward with a third season of the series, which has struggled to gain buzz amid the crowded cable crime drama landscape. The Bridge was recently generating around 1.2 million viewers and 0.4 rating among adults 18-49.
The Bridge starred Demián Bichir and Diane Kruger as detectives working along the U.S./Mexico border. FX overall has had a strong year for new shows, launching the acclaimed series version of crime thriller Fargo and the pulpy vampire thriller The Strain. On the more modest side, there was also Middle East thriller Tyrant, which was renewed for a second season. (source)
FX’s summer slate will kick off Tuesday, June 24 at 10/9c with the premiere of the new drama Tyrant, it was announced on Friday.
Also ahead is Season 2 of The Bridge, FX’s new vampire drama The Strain and FXX taking Wilfred out for a final walk.
The Bridge, FX’s acclaimed adaptation of the Danish series Bron, will then open its sophomore run on Wednesday, July 9 at 10 pm. (source)
The freshman drama, starring Diane Kruger and Demian Bichir as detectives on opposite sides of the U.S.-Mexico border, has been greeted with strong ratings stateside and abroad.
FX is heading back to The Bridge. The cable network announced that it has ordered a second season of the detective drama after being greeted by strong ratings stateside and abroad.
The 13-episode renewal comes as little surprise given the show’s solid performance — it has been tracking just shy of The Americans — and the creative team spoke optimistically of a second season throughout this summer’s panel at the Television Critics Association.
All told, the July 10 series premiere has taken in 5.07 million viewers. That figure, Nielsen’s Live+Seven Day returns, marks a 67 percent jump from the original haul of 3.04 million viewers. Both figures just trail The Americans as FX’s biggest launch to date. The Bridge ranks as the No. 1 new scripted cable series launch of the summer among adults 18-49. Season one is averaging 3.65 million total viewers and 1.68 million among adults 18-49. When adding DVR numbers, the series jumps 89 percent in total viewers and 105 percent in the demo compared with Live+Same Day. Continue…
