FX Cancels Tyrant

Ahead of tonight's season finale, FX has announced that Tyrant will not be returning, cancelling the summer drama after three seasons on the air.
While never a ratings hit for the network, Tyrant was a decent performer over the majority of its run. The move to end the show comes after a third season where viewership tapered off quite significantly from what it was drawing in seasons 1 and 2.
While today's cancellation comes as sudden, producers have stated that tonight's series finale should prove to be a satisfying ending for the show's devoted fans.

    During a November 2016 New York Times showrunner roundtable focused on TV's depiction of Muslim characters, Howard Gordon expressed regret for the fact that many of the Arab characters in "Tyrant," including the lead, were not played by actors of Arab descent: "I did a show called 'Tyrant,' one I was not running, but kind of wound up running. The lead was sort of the Arab Godfather, except the family business happened to be the military dictatorship of this country. So, right away, the tone of the show is up for grabs. It was at some level ambitious but ill-conceived, and we wound up casting, in the end, a Brit, who had not a drop of [Arab descent]....A white guy....Why we didn't find someone [else], I don't know why. I will call it my inattention, and somehow this happened, and I knew, at some visceral level, this is going to be, among the many challenges, perhaps the greatest challenge."

  • Dialog in season 2 suggests that Abuddin borders Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan. In other words, it seems to exist where Israel does in the real world.
