‘The Bastard Executioner’ Cancelled via Full-Page Ad

The Bastard Executioner

The hype for Kurt Sutter’s FX series The Bastard Executioner fizzled out once it aired. The showrunner announced the show’s cancellation after just one season by taking out a full-page ad in The Hollywood Reporter. Now this is the drama that grabs people’s attention. Sutter wrote, “The audience has spoken and unfortunately the word is, ‘meh.'” “It’s fantastic to get a good review [or] an award, but at the end of the day the only thing that matters, really, is numbers.”

The Bastard Executioner‘s ratings were never as high as Sons of Anarchy, which set FX records. He continued, “I’m not the guy sitting in my ivory tower spitting shit out and not caring if anyone is watching … I don’t want to write something that nobody’s fucking watching.”
