Outcast, the supernatural horror drama based on the comic by Robert Kirkman and Paul Azaceta, has been canceled by Cinemax after two seasons.

That likely doesn’t come as a surprise as viewers, as the series seemed to enter a domestic limbo following its first season. Renewed even before its 2016 series premiere, Outcast returned for Season 2 in April 2017 in the United Kingdom, but didn’t resurface in the United States until July 2018.

Cinemax confirmed in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter that, “There are no further plans for Outcast at this time.” The outlet notes that cast options “expired long ago” for a series that was expensive to produce yet never really paid dividends in terms of ratings or critical acclaim.

Outcast starred Patrick Fugit as Kyle Barnes, a young man plagued by demonic possession since childhood. Rejected by the people of fictional Rome, West Virginia, for allegedly harming his wife and daughter, he nevertheless offers to help a minister grappling with a boy who shows signs of possession, which sends him on a journey to uncover answers.

The series was produced by Circle of Confusion, Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment, and Fox International Studios, which THR points out was shuttered in late 2017. Co-creator of The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead, Kirkman served as an executive producer on Outcast, and wrote a pair of Season 1 episodes.
