Kim Cattrall’s new series Filthy Rich has been axed after only one series.
The Sex And The City star led the cast in a drama based around wealthy Southern American family The Monreauxs, whose lives are turned upside down after patriarch Eugene (Gerald McRaney) dies in a car crash.
As they learn to come to terms with the loss, the evangelist family is rocked even further on the discovery that he had secretly fathered three children, and left them money in his will.
The melodrama has only aired five episodes in the US so far, but Fox has decided to pull the plug after mediocre ratings.
According to Variety, rising production costs due to the pandemic are behind the decision to call it a day.
The show joins NEXT, a thriller series that has been cancelled after only two episodes and starred Mad Men’s John Slattery.
Slattery plays a tech SEO who has to join forces with a cybercrime agent for Homeland security after one of his artificial intelligence creations begins to cause havoc and threaten to tear down the world.
Following the production hiatus caused by coronavirus, Fox has scrambled to adjust its schedule in order to fill in the gap.
All live-action scripted shows for the network have now been pushed back for an early 2021 release date, with more cancellations expected to be announced.
Filthy Rich airs Mondays on Fox in the US, with a UK date not yet announced.
