After two seasons, Fox is pulling the plug on Human Target, as reported by Deadline.
The news isn’t entirely surprising, given Human Target’s recognized status as a “bubble show” after lower average ratings from last season. The series did hit some late spikes, including seasons two’s penultimate episode netting 9.2 million viewers in a post-American Idol time slot.
The series was loosely based on the DC character Christopher Chance, and starred Mark Valley in the title role. Fox has also canceled Breaking In, which co-starred Smallville‘s Michael Rosenbaum.
More television news is expected in the days ahead, with all five broadcast networks announcing their fall schedules in upfront presentations next week. NBC’s upfronts are scheduled for May 16, where the fate of the David E. Kelley-helmed Wonder Woman pilot will be revealed.
