The third season of Showtime’s crime thriller City On a Hill, which follows the corrupt Boston police, has just ended, and the series will not be renewed for a fourth, according to Deadline.
Recently, there was a change in leadership at the streamer, with Chris McCarthy from Paramount Media Networks replacing David Nevins as president of Showtime’s parent company, Paramount Global.
The decision to stop the show, however, was made covertly about a month ago and had nothing to do with the new boss.
The streamer released a statement saying, “City On A Hill finished its successful run on Showtime with its Season 3 finale.”
The streamer said, “We have had nothing but the best experience working with Kevin Bacon, Aldis Hodge, and the entire cast and crew, led by showrunner Tom Fontana and fellow executive producers including Jennifer Todd and Jorge Zamacona.
The two constantly battle with trust in the show as they alternately put each other down due to their divergent moral perspectives.
City On A Hill spent a year in development before making its debut in 2019.
The third season of the show debuted on July 31. Its eight episodes were released each week.
The cast of the show will move on to other endeavours now that it has been terminated.
Hodge, who portrays DA Ward, has already secured the role in his next significant small-screen movie.
