FX puts an end to The Bridge

FX puts an end to The Bridge

81jfR9OY2QL._SL1500_It seems like FX shutdown scythe will reap another victim by the end of the year. This time the short stick has been drawn by detectives Sonya Cross and Marco Ruiz, the two officers who brought to the US screens the adaptation of the Scandinavian crime-drama TV series The Bridge. The decision can be easily explained by watching the bad figures drawn by  the latest viewers and ratings reports.

We’re talking about a million of total viewers and a constantly decreasing rating who ultimately reached a tiny 0.3 in the 18-49 adults range. Sad numbers to say the least, even considering the modest competitors featured by other networks during the same timeframe: the show isn’t exactly healty, no doubt about it.

Those who liked the show style, mood and pace could always try to switch to the original series, which is still quite lively in the Scandinavian countries and also has a third season on its way. On the other hand, those who watched it only for the beautiful Diane Kruger will most likely have to move on.
