Why Was It Cancelled? Series showrunner and executive producer Bryan Fuller probably explained best why the show was cancelled in his statement following the announcement:
NBC has allowed us to craft a television series that no other broadcast network would have dared, and kept us on the air for three seasons despite Cancellation Bear Chow ratings and images that would have shredded the eyeballs of lesser Standards & Practices enforcers.
The show’s production company will shop it around and it has a worldwide following, so it does still have a chance to continue into a fourth season on a different network or one of the streaming services..
