Epix is saying goodbye to one of its first original series. The premium cable network has cancelled the Richard Armitage fronted spy drama Berlin Station. The news, which was first reported by Deadline, comes more than a month after the show’s third season wrapped its run.
Berlin Station is set in the CIA’s office in Berlin, Germany and follows the activities of CIA operatives on a global stage amid investigations of moles, terrorists, corrupt politicians and more. The drama series is produced by Paramount Television and Anonymous Content and stars Richard Armitage, Richard Jenkins, Michelle Forbes, Rhys Ifans, Leland Orser, Ashley Judd, Keke Palmer and Ismael Cruz Córdova.
When Epix re-entered the scripted space a few years ago, Berlin Station was one of the first two series (the other being Graves) to score a series order. While both Graves and Berlin Station have since been cancelled, Epix, now under the leadership of former TNT boss Michael Wright, has a healthy slate of scripted originals that includes Get Shorty and upcoming series Pennyworth, Godfather Of Harlem and Our Lady, LTD.
Channel 4’s digi-net More4 holds the UK rights to Berlin Station after they agreed a deal with international distributor Paramount Pictures Worldwide Television Licensing & Distribution. The first season aired in More4 late last year. The channel has not yet aired the second or third seasons.
