Starz Officially Cancels CAMELOT

     June 30, 2011


After premiering the first season in April with Joseph Fiennes, Eva Green, Claire Forlani, and more leading the series, Starz has officially decided it will not pursue their medieval drama series Camelot for a second season. A representative for the cable network says, “Due to significant production challenges, Starz has decided not to exercise the option for subsequent seasons of Camelot with our production partners GK-tv, Octagon Films and Take 5 Productions.”  Honestly, I was never sold on the series to begin with as it just seemed like they were taking the violence and sex of Spartacus: Blood and Sand and sending it over to Camelot. Between this and Party Down (a very funny show that, for whatever reason, lacked an audience), the cable company doesn’t seem to have as much luck with their original series’ as Showtime or HBO.
