Showtime has announced that it has cancelled American Rust, the Jeff Daniels and Maura Tierney-starring drama.
The news comes just three months after its Season 1 finale, and despite the show receiving critical praise, particularly for Daniels' central portrayal of a smalltown police chief.

"We can confirm that American Rust will not be moving forward with a second season," a Showtime rep said in a statement.

"We would like to thank our partners at Boat Rocker, our talented showrunner Dan Futterman and the rest of the wonderful writers, and our amazing cast led by Jeff Daniels and Maura Tierney."

American Rust centered on Daniels's Del Harris, the police chief of a Rust Belt town in Pennsylvania who takes on the investigation when the son of the woman he loves (played by Tierney) is accused of murder.
