'Mob City' cancelled by TNT after just one short season

Frank Darabont looked to follow up his disappointing exit from "The Walking Dead" with his prohibition era drama "Mob City." According to TV Line on Feb. 10, that return has just ended as TNT announced it was cancelling "Mob City" after just one short season.

The release for "Mob City" was very strange and unique. Frank Darabont created six episodes for the first season of the show and then they were shown over three weeks, with two episodes airing each night.

It was unfortunate that the debut night of the show only brought in around two million viewers, which was considered a disappointment for the network. Since the show only aired for three weeks, it never had a chance to build a following and now never will.

"Mob City" was an adaptation of the novel "L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America’s Most Seductive City" and Frank Darabont brought his breakout "The Walking Dead" star Jon Bernthal with him to star in the show.

Also appearing on the show was an all-star cast including Neal McDonough and Ed Burns.

According to the TNT reps, the reason they cancelled "Mob City" was because the ratings were not good enough to warrant making a second season. However, they said they enjoyed working with Frank Darabont and hoped to work with him again in the future on something else.
