“Lodge 49” has been canceled by AMC after two seasons. The show’s second season ended earlier this month.

The series, starring Wyatt Russell, is set to be shopped to other platforms and networks, an individual with knowledge tells TheWrap.

“We are so proud to have had ‘Lodge 49’ on our air,” AMC said in statement to TheWrap. “This wonderful show gave audiences fresh and unforgettable characters in a world that did not exist anywhere else on television. Thanks to the stellar cast including Wyatt Russell, Sonya Cassidy and Brent Jennings and to our partners in this unique labor of love, Jim Gavin, Peter Ocko and Paul Giamatti for two remarkable seasons that initiated the world into The Ancient and Benevolent Order of the Lynx.”

“Lodge 49” is described as “a light-hearted, endearing modern fable set in Long Beach, California about a disarmingly optimistic local ex-surfer, Dud (Russell), who’s drifting after the death of his father and collapse of the family business.”

Along with Russell, the series stars Brent Jennings (Ernie), Sonya Cassidy (Liz), Linda Emond (Connie), Eric Allan Kramer (Scott) and David Pasquesi (Blaise).

The second season of “Lodge 49” averaged 428,000 total viewers, with 132,000 of those coming from the adults 18-49 demographic and 180,000 viewers in the age 25-54 range, according to Live + 3 Day data from Nielsen. Those numbers are down 43%, 40% and 44%, respectively, from the show’s first season, which aired in 2018.

Executive producers include creator and writer Jim Gavin, showrunner Peter Ocko (“Pushing Daisies,” “The Office”), Paul Giamatti (“Billions,” “Sideways,” “Outsiders,” “Hoke”), Dan Carey (“Outsiders,” “Hoke,” “John Dies at the End,” “All Is Bright”) and Jeff Freilich (“Halt and Catch Fire,” “Grace and Frankie”).

“Lodge 49” is an AMC Studios production.
