Amazon Cancels “Last Tycoon” After One Season

Amazon does not seem to be a fan of F. Scott Fitzgerald as they have just cancelled their Matt Bomer-led pricey period drama series based on his unfinished novel “The Last Tycoon” after one season.

The decision comes days after the corporate giant reversed a previous decision and axed the renewed “Z: The Beginning of Everything,” a Christian Ricci-led series which followed Fitzgerald’s wife Zelda.

‘Tycoon’ was picked up for nine episodes last year and began streaming on Amazon on July 28th. Kelsey Grammer and Lily Collins also starred in the series which dealt with the Hollywood studio system in the 1930s and scored only mixed reviews.

The decisions are part of a larger strategy change at Amazon to try and find a large-scale hit, and leads to the immediate question – what else is getting the chop?
