Zoo's Craziness Canceled After Three Seasons

No more insane animals? What will we make fun of now?

After three season, Zoo has officially been canceled by CBS says The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on a best-selling novel, Zoo told the story of a heroic group of scientists, animal experts, a journalist and an Interpol agent who take on the biggest crisis the world has ever seen: animals smart enough to realize how terribly we're screwing up the planet, who eventually decide humans must DIE. Scary, right?

Unfortunately, this totally bananas premise didn't merit a huge viewership, and the show's numbers steadily declined during its three-season run. It was, however, the longest-running original summer scripted drama on CBS (tied with Under the Dome), which is probably a small consolation prize but noteworthy nonetheless. The decision to axe Zoo comes on the heels of Salvation's Season 2 renewal. Apparently there's only enough room for one impending apocalypse on the CBS summer lineup.
