USA Network has cancelled Sirens after airing two season of the comedy series starring Michael Mosley, Kevin Daniels and Kevin Bigley, TVWise has confirmed.
Based on the UK series of the same name, Sirens follows a group of Chicago’s best EMTs who are rock stars professionally, but struggle to keep their personal lives in order. The Fox Television Studios produced half-hour effort is based on the British series of the same name and stars Michael Mosley, Kevin Daniels, Kevin Bigley, Jessica McNamee and Josh Segarra.
Sirens was the first series ordered by USA as part of a recent push into original comedy, which also saw them pick up scripted comedies Playing House and Benched. Following mediocre ratings for their originals comedies, USA’s top brass reassessed their strategy and opted to re-focus on drama.
That move already led to the cancellation of the Eliza Coupe fronted legal comedy Benched and also played a part in today’s cancellation of Sirens after the series, which is executive produced by Denis Leary, failed to register any significant growth in the ratings.
It should be noted, however, that USA has not completely turned their back on comedy. They are still the off-network home to re-runs of Modern Family and are set to bow the second season of Playing House this summer using a specially devised windowing structure which will see episodes premiere via on-demand a week before airing on USA Network.
Sirens‘ cancellation was first reported by Deadline.
