"Mob City was created as a three-week television event, and we are incredibly proud of the six hours we presented of this remarkable drama," TNT said in a statement Monday. "Although the ratings of the limited series haven't warranted more hours, we are eager to work with Frank Darabont again and were delighted to bring the vibrant world of Mob City to life."
Starring Walking Dead alum Jon Bernthal, Neal McDonough, Milo Ventimiglia and Ed Burns, among others, the series focused on the clash between gangsters and the L.A.P.D. back in the 1940s. Mob City premiered to 2.29 million viewers in December, and dropped to 1.35 million viewers in its third and final week.
Although TNT says that Mob City was always supposed to be a limited series, Darabont had expressed his interest in continuing work on the drama. "We were never really geared to be a limited miniseries," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "We shot these as individual hours just like any hour of television show." This was Darabont's first TV project since he abruptly left The Walking Dead midway through the hit AMC drama's second season back in 2011.
Are you sad Mob City won't be back for a second season? What do you want Darabont to do next?
