“American Woman” will not be returning for a second season, the Paramount Network announced Wednesday.
The series starred “Clueless” star Alicia Silverstone as a mother navigating the 1970s sexual revolution. Mena Suvari and Jennifer Bartels also starred in the 12-episode first season. While the John Riggi-created series started off strong, it did not maintain high enough ratings to merit a sophomore run.
The cast also included Makenna James, Lia McHugh, Cheyenne Jackson and James Tupper. John Wells, John Riggi and Alex Hardcastle served as executive producers.
Earlier on Wednesday, Paramount Network announced a new series, titled “Emily in Paris.” The dramedy comes from Darren Star — who’s “Younger” will move from TV Land to the Paramount Network next spring for its sixth season. “Emily in Paris” is expected sometime next summer, and will follow the Midwestern Emily as she moves from the U.S. to Paris for an unexpected job opportunity.
“Emily in Paris” is created, executive produced and written by Star, with Tony Hernandez of JAX Media executive producing for Paramount Network. “Younger” is also created, executive produced and written by Darren Star, with Hernandez executive producing for Paramount Network. Dottie Zicklin and Eric Zicklin also serve as executive producers and writers on the series.
