Civil War drama “Mercy Street” will not be returning on PBS for a third season, citing funding and “the complicated nature of aligning production timelines” as the reason behind the show’s cancellation.
“We are extremely proud of both seasons of Mercy Street,” said Beth Hoppe, PBS chief programming executive. “Our talented executive producers, Lisa Wolfinger, David Zabel and David W. Zucker, brought to life an entertaining and historically accurate account of this time, along with the equally talented team of actors led by Josh Radnor as Dr. Jedediah Foster and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Nurse Mary Phinney; the directors, producers and crew who created a visually rich, high-quality series; and our sponsors and partners who helped make Mercy Street possible.”
The second finale of “Mercy Street” — now the series finale — aired last Sunday. Twelve episodes in total were produced.
