Probably about 10 people care about this news, but as far as cop shows, it was one of the better ones to come down the pipe in recent years. I found myself enjoying The Unusuals more than I probably should have.
The show’s strengths were largely due to the top notch ensemble – particularly Adam Goldberg, Amber Tamblyn and Harold Perrineau.
But the ratings weren’t there for the quirky cop procedural.
“Friends, just heard The Unusuals will not be back for a second season,” series creator Noah Hawley shared Sunday via his Twitter account. “Thanks for all your amazing support. Last [four] episodes start May 27.”
ABC gave The Unusuals a fair shot, even running double episodes one week, on Tuesday and Wednesday night. Still, it’s numbers hovered around the 5 million viewer mark.
