Manhattan is set against the backdrop of the clandestine mission to build the world’s first atomic bomb in Los Alamos, New Mexico and follows the brilliant but flawed scientists and their families as they attempt to co-exist in a world where secrets and lies infiltrate every aspect of their lives.
WGN America confirmed today that Manhattan has been cancelled after two seasons. The period drama, which followed events around the creation of the Manhattan Project in the 1940's, was the cable network's second original scripted series behind the still-airing Salem.
The show garnered its share of critical praise but failed to draw enough viewers during its run to sustain it any further. The final episode ofManhattan aired this past December.
