'Political Animals' is done at USA: Miniseries won't be extended
"Political Animals" is a somewhat different, uh, animal than the other two shows in that it was billed as a miniseries. Still, its finale was open-ended enough to allow for the possibility of a second season. That's not happening now.
"We are proud of 'Political Animals,' our miniseries that attracted critical acclaim and impacted the cultural conversation this summer. It was a pleasure to work with [executive producers] Greg Berlanti and Laurence Mark and a powerful cast led by Sigourney Weaver," USA says in a statement. "We look forward to collaborating again with these immensely talented creatives."
TVLine first reported the news.
The miniseries averaged about 2.1 million viewers in the same-day Nielsens, rising to 3.2 million in Live +7 ratings.
