FX is pulling the plug on their Middle East drama, “Tyrant,” after three seasons.
The final episode of the series will air tonight.
FX boss John Landgraf released a statement commending the show’s creators for doing a great job considering it was very challenging to get viewers to connect to “stories we do not know or understand.”
It’s very difficult to find common ground with other people whose stories we do not know or understand.
The creators of Tyrant have done their utmost over three seasons to tell American audiences a tiny fraction of the many gripping, human stories coursing through the Middle East today. We want to thank Howard Gordon, Chris Keyser and their talented team of collaborators, including all the writers, directors, cast and crew, as well as our studio partners at Fox 21 Television Studios, for taking on Tyrant’s tremendously ambitious story with such profound dedication and respect.
I was here for the first season of “Tyrant,” I struggled with the second season, and cashed out on the third.
