TNT Cancels Darabont’s “Mob City”

TNT has opted not to go forward with a second season of Frank Darabont’s Los Angeles noir period drama “Mob City”.

Premiering as a six-episode, three week TV event, the hope was the mini-series would do well enough to green light a full length 13-episode second season.

Despite heavy promotion, the series premiered to a soft 2.3 million total viewers and just 801,000 adults 18-49. Compare that to a TNT solid performer like “Major Crimes” which earns 6.7 million viewers per episode in Live + 7 ratings.

A TNT spokesperson says: “Mob City was created as a three-week television event and we are incredibly proud of the six hours we presented of this remarkable drama. Although the ratings of the limited series haven’t warranted more hours we are eager to work with Frank Darabont again and were delighted to bring the vibrant world of Mob City to life.”

‘Mob’ is the third consecutive new TNT drama series to get axed after just one season.
