Frank Darabont’s second series as showrunner did not work out as well as his first.
While AMC’s “The Walking Dead” has emerged as TV’s top scripted series and has already been greenlit for a fifth season, TNT’s “Mob City” will not get season two.
As with “Walking Dead,” “Mob City’s” first season consisted of just six hours.
Darabont, writer-director of the acclaimed big-screen Stephen King adaptations “The Shawshank Redemption,” “The Green Mile” and “The Mist,” decided to mount “City” after AMC fired him midway through the second season of “Dead.”
Aired in three 2-hour installments, “Mob City” debuted with a lowish 0.6 in adults 18-49, then fell even lower to 0.4s for its second and final nights.
Reviews were mixed with Variety calling it “great-looking but dramatically flaccid.”
