Well, it turns out that rumors of the show’s cancellation (related story here) were indeed correct. HBO has officially canceled the David Milch series John From Cincinnati.
The decision was handed down on Monday, just a day after the show concluded its first (and now only) season.
HBO though is still interested in staying in business with the show’s co-creator, as he is in the process of extending his existing development deal with the network (which currently runs through August 2008).
As is well known, the show had the pleasure of leading out of the series finale of The Sopranos, but failed to capitalize on the exposure, posting poor numbers in terms of retention. The series continued to fade to an average just a little over the 1 million viewer mark, well below where it started (3.42 million viewers).
