After just one season on the USA Network, Briarpatch, starring Rosario Dawson, has been canceled.

Showrunner Andy Greenwald made the announcement on Twitter confirming that the 10-episode series won’t be returning for a second season.

“Just wanted to let you know some disappointing news before you hear it from anyone else: Briarpatch isn’t returning for another season at USA,” Greenwald tweeted. “Though I’ve known for months, it’s still a bummer. We had an amazing story planned for S2 and I was lucky enough to work with the most amazing writers and crew, all of whom were itching to get back to work. I think we were going to do something special,” the Twitter post reads.

He also hinted that the series could be picked up by another network if it’s popularity increases. “If enough people keep checking the show out on demand, anything’s possible.”

Briarpatch was based on Ross Thomas’s book of the same name and it followed Allegra Dill (Dawson), an investigator returning to her hometown of Texas after her sister’s murder. During her search for her sister’s killer, she tries to bring her corrupt hometown down.

Jay R. Ferguson, Brian Geraghty, and Edi Gathegi also starred in the series.
