Fox Cancels “Deputy” After One Season

Stephen Dorff in "Deputy"

Fox cancels another freshman drama. 

The independent broadcast network announced Friday that it has decided to cancel its police drama series starring Stephen Dorff. Deputy hailed from creator Will Beall. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the decision to axe the show was made purely based on ratings — during its 13-episode run, the series totaled 3.66 million viewers. The series ranked as Fox’s second lowest-rated drama series this season, ahead of Almost Family, the other freshman drama axed by Fox. 

Dorff, who starred as the lead in the series, was a very much sought after talent following his performance on HBO’s Detective.
