The USA Network has cancelled Falling Water after two seasons. It’s been a rather brutal pick-up season, with lots of established shows failing to get renewed by their home networks, so it sadly shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Falling Water has been dropped by USA.
Falling Water was The USA Network’s lowest-rated series, with regards to linear ratings, during both of its seasons. Many assumed it would get cancelled after one season, but it managed to dodge the bullet at that time. There has been no such luck this time around, with The USA Network opting to pull the plug rather than press ahead with Falling Water season 3.
Falling Water had an ambitious premise: three unrelated people (played by David Ajala, Will Yun Lee and Lizzie Brochere) see fragments of a larger picture in their dreams, and each person hopes the dream can help them with their personal problems. One has a missing girlfriend, another has a lost child, and the third has a seriously unwell mother. They come together to try and crack the code, realising in the process that there is more at stake here than their own loved ones.
The series was created by 2 Guns scribe Blake Masters and the late Henry Bromell, with The Walking Dead producer Gale Anne Hurd and 28 Weeks Later director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo serving as executive producers.
The second season ended its run on March 10th, with an episode that will now have to serve as the series finale.
