FX has opted against a fourth season of drama “Tyrant,” which received its walking papers just in time for last night’s now series finale.
“It’s very difficult to find common ground with other people whose stories we do not know or understand,” said FX CEO John Landgraf in a statement. “The creators of “Tyrant” have done their utmost over three seasons to tell American audiences a tiny fraction of the many gripping, human stories coursing through the Middle East today. We want to thank Howard Gordon, Chris Keyser and their talented team of collaborators, including all the writers, directors, cast and crew, as well as our studio partners at Fox 21 Television Studios, for taking on “Tyrant’s” tremendously ambitious story with such profound dedication and respect.”
Producers on show have suggested that “Tyrant” could find a new home, but also said the finale at 10 served as a fitting end.
Debuting on June 24, 2014, “Tyrant” told the tale of the younger son of a Middle East dictator who is forced to return to his home country along with his American wife and children. The cast included Adam Rayner, Jennifer Finnigan, Moran Atias, Ashraf Barhom, Noah Silver, Alexander Karim, Cameron Gharaee, Melia Kreiling, and Chris Noth. Thirty-two episodes in total were produced.
