CBS has canceled military drama “The Code” after one season.
Star Dana Delany tweeted the news out on Tuesday, writing: “Thank you to all you wonderful people who watched @TheCodeCBS. Last night was our finale and sadly, no more. I’ll never make General. But I loved this cast of stellar actors & know we’ll meet again. Semper Fidelis.”
Monday night’s episode will now serve as its series finale. It drew a 0.3 rating in the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demo and had 2.9 million total viewers.
The series followed soldiers who tackled legal challenges facing the U.S. Marine Corps. Along with Delany, “The Code” starred Luke Mitchell, Anna Wood, Ato Essandoh, Phillipa Soo, and Raffi Barsoumian. The series was created by Craig Sweeny and Craig Turk, who also executive produced along with Marc Webb, Carl Beverly, Sarah Timberman and Christine Moore.
“The Code’ debuted to solid ratings in April, where it aired behind “NCIS” but suffered when it moved to Mondays. The show underwent a few changes before it even premiered, recasting Mira Sorvino and Dave Annable, both of whom were in the pilot.
Earlier this month, CBS canceled “Ransom” after three seasons. “The Code” was the last bubble show from this past TV season that was still awaiting a decision.
