Starz Series 'Camelot' Canceled After Just One Season
7/1/2011 8:56am EDT
Bosses behind budget-busting TV epic "Camelot" have scrapped the drama after coming up against "significant production challenges."
The multi-million dollar historical drama, focusing on King Arthur's Britain and starring Joseph Fiennes, Jamie Campbell Bower and one-time Bond girl Eva Green, debuted on America's Starz network to huge acclaim, pulling in the network's largest ever opening for a new programme in April.
However, despite the show's success, bosses at Starz have decided against renewing the series for a second season.
A statement from the production office reads, "Due to significant production challenges, Starz has decided not to exercise the option for subsequent seasons of Camelot with our production partners GK-tv, Octagon Films and Take 5 Productions."
