The clock has struck twelve for Magic City. Starz has canceled the period drama after two seasons, according to Deadline Hollywood. The series, which chronicled the lives of mobsters in Miami during the 1950s, will air its series finale this Friday at 9pm.
"We are tremendously proud of the series and everyone involved," Starz said in a statement. "This was a story born from Mitch Glazer's singular vision of Miami, the Magic City of his childhood, and we are grateful to him for bringing it to life on Starz. The season's story arc will allow us to deliver a satisfying conclusion to the series, and we thank all the fans who checked in to the Miramar Playa."
Ratings for Magic City have never been stellar—and that Friday-evening time slot probably did it no favors—but it was one of the first scripted dramas Starz ordered directly to series. It was also renewed for a second season before it even premiered, much like the pay cable recently did with the upcoming pirate drama Black Sails.
In related news, we think now is a perfect time for John Winchester (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) to return to Supernatural—fallen angels and all that. Seems like the timing is, ahem, magical.
Will you be sad to see Magic City end?
