68 Whiskey follows a multicultural mix of men and women deployed as Army medics to a forward operating base in Afghanistan nicknamed "The Orphanage". Together, they endure a dangerous and Kafkaesque world that leads to self-destructive appetites, outrageous behavior, intense camaraderie and occasionally, a profound sense of purpose.
It is being reported that Paramount Network has cancelled 68 Whiskey after just one season. The news comes five months after the dramedy wrapped its 10-episode freshman run.
The hour-long series got off to a solid start when it premiered in January, garnering decent reviews and fairly good ratings in the early going. Unfortunately audiences did not stick around, leaving the show outside of cable TV's Top 100 by its finale.
68 Whiskey follows a diverse group of men and women who are stationed in Afghanistan as Army medics. As they endure dangerous surroundings, they rely on friendship, vices, and a shared sense of purpose to get them through their days.
