Media outlets are reporting that the USA Network have cancelled drama series Briarpatch after one season.
The official synopsis for the series is as follows:
When Detective Felicity Dill is killed in a car bombing, her sister Allegra Dill, an investigator working for a senator, returns home to San Bonifacio to find her killer. In the process of her investigation, she uncovers a web of corruption in the small Texas town.
Andy Greenwald, series creator and showrunner, took to social media to release a statement about his disappointment about the cancellation announcement, saying:
The series premiered in early February and aired for ten episodes. The premiere debuted to 528,000 viewers, which then took a steep drop in the second week, then relocating from Thursday nights to Monday saw its numbers rebounded to an average of 487,000. So among recent USA Network scripted shows, it outrated only Treadstone, Pearson and Dare Me…which all have been cancelled as well.
The series starred Rosario Dawson, Jay R. Ferguson, Edi Gathegi, Brian Geraghty, Kim Dickens, Sarah Minnich, Charles Parnell, Allegra Edwards, Kirk Fox, Enrique Murciano, John Aylward, Timm Sharp, Christine Woods, Susan Park, Alan Cumming, Mel Rodriguez, David Paymer and Ed Asner.
