Camelot has been axed after just one season, the network Starz has confirmed.
The fantasy drama, based upon the Authurian legend, stars Jamie Campbell-Bower as Prince Arthur, alongside Joseph Fiennes and Eva Green. But despite a positive reception, it will not return for a second series.
Starz blamed production issues for the show’s demise. A statement read: “Due to significant production challenges, Starz has decided not to exercise the option for subsequent seasons of Camelot with our production partners GK-tv, Octagon Films and Take 5 Productions.”
Scheduling conflicts with some of the show’s cast has also been blamed for the axing, according to Deadline.com. Camelot is currently airing in the UK on Channel 4 on Saturday nights at 9pm (BST).
However, the BBC‘s own version of the Arthurian legend, the child-friendly Merlin, has fared better, and is due to return for a fourth series.
