So long Sam Hodiak, we hardly knew ye. David Duchovny’s period crime thriller Aquarius has been cancelled by NBC after just two seasons.
The series followed Duchovny’s entirely fictions detective as he led a man-hunt for real-life serial killer Charles Manson, played by Game of Thrones’ Gethin Anthony.
The show had struggled in the ratings ever since the entirety of its first season was released – box-set style – in 2015, and it was not expected to receive a third run.
It also proved to be highly controversial to many who were unhappy with its portrayal of Manson, with the sister of victim Sharon Tate previously calling for a boycott of the show.
It’s not all bad for Duchovny, though, as Fox are expected to green light a new series of The X-Files after the monster sci-fi show made a successful comeback earlier this year.
