Richard Graves, a former two-term POTUS, embarks on a Don Quixote-like quest to right the wrongs of his administration and reclaim his legacy 20 years after leaving the White House. With topics ranging from immigration to gay rights, to foreign policy to public funding for arts and sciences, Graves holds nothing sacred as he unspools some of his administration's proudest victories. His enlightenment takes place just as his wife decides it's time for her to pursue her own political ambitions.
Graves makes amends the only way he can. Margaret's Senate race comes to an end. Isaiah pursues what matters most. Olivia hosts a brunch for her in-laws, who make her a surprising offer. Jeremy takes to the stage and Samantha goes on tour.
It is being reported that Epix has decided to cancel Graves after two seasons. The political comedy ended its sophomore run early this month, with the December 10 finale now serving as its series ender.
Graves starred veteran actor Nick Nolte as a former U.S. president who, 25 years after his two terms in office, sets out to right the wrongs of his administration and reclaim his legacy. The show aired a total of 20 episodes over the course of its run, receiving mixed reviews from critics.
The series premiered in 2016 as the cable network's first foray into original scripted comedy. With the series now over, that leaves Berlin Station and Get Shorty as its two remaining original programs. Both have already been renewed for new seasons in 2018.
