Starz Chief Operating Officer Jeffrey Hirsch told reporters at the Television Critics Association summer press tour on Friday that though everyone at the network was proud of a good first season that was a "great experiment," they would not be moving forward with another season of Now Apocalypse.
It's a sad decision for fans of the visually stunning and proactively sex-positive series, but there's no denying it was a little off-the-wall, even for Starz. The series brought to life Gregg Araki's colorful world in which a group of four struggling Los Angeles millennials, Ulysses (Avan Jogia), Carly (Kelli Berglund), Severine (Roxanne Mesquida), and Ford (Beau Mirchoff), whose lives are rocked when one of them begins having visions about an alien apocalypse. Throw in a few bizarre reptilian sightings and arguably drug-induced hallucinations, and you've got an addictive series for those dedicated enough to wade through the insanity.
Now Apocalypse is currently streaming on the Starz app.
