Here’s one “Colony” that is no longer a part of USA.

The USA Network has canceled “Colony,” starring “Lost” alum Josh Holloway.

The Season 3 finale, scheduled for Wednesday, will now also double as the series capper.

The series, created by Carlton Cuse (“Lost”), was set in a dystopian Los Angeles of the near future, where residence live under the occupation of the Transitional Authority, which serves a shadowy extraterrestrial group referred to as the “Hosts.”

While the series premiered to a strong 2.2 million viewers in Live Plus 3-Day ratings with 900,000 of those in the advertiser-sought 18-49 demographic, the series suffered steep declines season-over-season, with the current (and now last) third season averaging 1.3 million total viewers with 394,000 in the key demo, again in Live Plus 3 ratings.
