The espionage thriller follows a man named Howard Silk, a lowly cog in the bureaucratic machinery of a Berlin-based UN spy agency. When Howard discovers that his organization safeguards the secret of a crossing into a parallel dimension, he is thrust into a shadow world of intrigue, danger and double cross. The only man he can trust is "Prime", Howard's near-identical counterpart from this parallel world.
It looks like Starz has cancelled Counterpart after two seasons. Creator Justin Marks made the announcement on his Twitter account this morning, with the sad news coming just days ahead of the sci-fi drama's sophomore finale, which airs this Sunday.
Counterpart follows a lowly employee at a Berlin-based United Nations spy agency who, after learning that the organization he works for is safeguarding a secret crossing into a parallel Earth, finds himself mixed up in a shadowy world of danger, conspiracy, and double-cross. This mysterious world hidden beneath the surface of everyday existence brings up questions about fate and his identity. And after meeting his near-identical counterpart, Howard realizes the only man he can trust is the parallel version of himself.
