PBS has cancelled Mercy Street after two seasons. No Season 3 for the Civil War-era drama.
The decision to cancel Mercy Street was prompted by a lack of funding and “the complicated nature of aligning production timelines.”
EP David Zucker said of the show’s legacy:
“We sought to bring a time and place to life that is so important to understanding American history, and in a way that was meaningful, authentic and entertaining.
EP David Zabel added:
“Together, we delivered twelve hours of compelling and worthwhile storytelling which we all take pride in. It was five years in the making and we are grateful to PBS for its loyal support.”
There are no plans to shop the series to other outlets.
The second and now final season of Mercy Street wrapped March 5, 2017.
