#124 The Magicians (Syfy)
Midway through its fifth season, it was revealed the fantasy drama current season would be its last. While Syfy didn’t give any explanation behind the cancellation, executive producer John McNamara and revealed that Syfy ultimately pulled the plug on the series due to financials.
“It played out kind of the way it’s played out almost every season. With the exception of Season 4 into Season 5, we never knew whether or not we’re going to get picked up,” McNamara said. “It was always a discussion — never really about the creative — about the financials and you always know, with any show, that there’s this kind of fine line between what it brings in and what it costs. [The show] not going to necessarily expand in terms of revenue, it’s not necessarily going to contract in terms of revenue, but it is going to cost more.”
The series finale will air on April 5th.
