News of the cancellation of CBS drama series Interrogation was released on Wednesday, according to Variety. Reasons behind its cancellation are still unknown. The announcement came just ten months after the show’s initial launch.
Hailing from co-creators Anders Weidemann (Beartown) and John Mankiewicz (House of Cards), Interrogation was based on a true story in which a man was accused and convicted of murdering his mother. With each episode featuring a separate interrogation, viewers were able to watch the series in any order and follow their own investigative instincts. In a statement, Executive Vice President at CBS All Access claimed, “Anders Weidemann, John Mankiewicz and Fabrik Entertainment’s unique approach to exploring an unsolved true-crime in Interrogation allowed the audience to follow their own investigative path of evidence and suspecting characters throughout a 10-episode arc. They led an amazing team of writers, directors, and cast, all of whom delivered a close-ended season that will continue to be available on CBS All Access for new viewers to discover and enjoy,” via Variety.
The series starred Kyle Gallner (Jennifer’s Body), Kodi Smit-McPhee (X-Men: Apocalypse), Vincent D’Onofrio (Daredevil), and David Strathairn (The Bourne Ultimatum). Interrogation was the first American production for Weidemann. The show joins the list of recent CBS All Access cancellations, including Tell Me a Story, One Dollar, and Strange Angel.
