"I’m disappointed that our story won’t continue on Peacock, but I feel so lucky to have spent the past years alongside the best writers, cast, and crew I know, and so grateful to our fans for all the love and support."

Rick Montano, one of the show's writers, also issued a statement revealing his upset that the show never got to come to a close thanks to the second season ending on a cliffhanger.

He said: "Huge thanks to the fans of the show for all your support. You have no idea how much you’ve meant to the crew and the cast. Y’all deserved an ending, and I wish we could have given you one. It was going to be awesome."

The series proved popular with fans however it is believed that Peacock executives in the US thought viewing figures were too low to consider bringing the show back for a third run.

However, there could still be hope for the show yet.

According to FlixPatrol, the show performed exceptionally well in the international market on Netflix.

It reached the top 10 shows in around 77 territories, including one of its biggest markets, the UK, and the murder mystery series remained in the top 10 for over a month in 44 of those.

Therefore, it could be likely that Netflix could take over production of the programme from Peacock should they so wish the show to carry on.

Netflix have previously taken over Peacock shows once they have been axed including 2022's Girls5eva proving it is doable.

Peacock appear to have followed suit on its rival Netflix who have also recently axed a whole host of shows.

Neil Patrick Harris saw his romantic comedy Uncoupled dumped from the platform after just one series.

Animations including Dead End: Paranormal Park and Inside Job also got thrown out by Netflix leaving fans creating petitions in order for it to return.
