Epix has opted against a third season of scripted drama “Graves.” Debuting on Oct. 16, 2016, the dramedy featured Nick Nolte as a former President of the United States who admitted to the mistakes he made while in office. “Graves” also starred Skylar Astin, Helene Yorke, Chris Lowell, Callie Hernandez and Sela Ward. Twenty episodes in total aired.

Produced by Lionsgate in association with Kingsgate Films, “Graves” was created by Joshua Michael Stern who also served as show-runner. Academy Award winner Greg Shapiro and Rebecca Kirshner served as executive producers, Abby Gewanter was supervising producer, and Emmy-winning Bill Hill and Jack Moore were producers.

”Graves” was one of the three original series Epix entered the scripted arena with. The others were drama “Berlin Station,” which was renewed for a third season, and dark comedy “Get Shorty,” which premiered in August of this year and it returning for a second season.
