WGN America has officially cancelled their most watched drama series OUTSIDERS after two seasons. The announcement comes ahead of the Season 2 finale on April 25, which will now serve as the series finale.

The network is currently looking to expand original content and reallocating resources to a more diverse programming strategy. Here’s the full statement they released:

“After three years of investing in marquee, brand-defining dramas, WGN America has successfully expanded its audience, its reach, and its presence in the minds of viewers. In our next phase, we intend to expand our original and unique content to continue growing our relevance and appeal to the widest possible audience. To achieve this, we will be reallocating our resources to a more diverse programming strategy and to new structures, enabling us to expand both the quantity and breadth of content aired by WGN America. This move is designed to deliver even more value to our advertising and distribution partners. To free up the resources to reach this goal, we will unfortunately not be renewing OUTSIDERS. We are grateful to our production partners at Sony Pictures Television and the terrifically talented people who made the show possible.”
