The premium cable network supported by Paramount Global reportedly failed to continue the show for a second season, according to sources quoted in The Hollywood Reporter.

The drama’s creators, Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet, originally had it in mind as a closed-ended limited series, but they altered their minds midway through the first season.

According to sources, executives thought the season ended naturally and suitably and were really satisfied with the show’s creative.

According to a Showtime representative who talked to THR, “our thanks to the outstanding Alex Kurtzman, Jenny Lumet, John Hlavin, and Sarah Timberman who did a terrific job making the David Bowie picture into such a compelling tale for our times.”

And thanks to a wonderful ensemble for bringing it to life, especially Chiwetel Ejiofor, Naomie Harris, and Bill Nighy. The Man Who Fell To Earth was intended by Alex and Jenny to be a conclusive narrative.

We all ultimately decided to accept it as a well-told one-season story, even though we briefly considered expanding it into a second season.

BACKGROUND OF THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH

The Queen’s Gambit, a 1963 novel by Walter Tevis (the author of The Man Who Fell to Earth) that was made into a 1976 film starring David Bowie, served as the inspiration for the 2019 CBS All Access (now Paramount+) series order.

Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) plays a brand-new alien that crashes on Earth in the drama, in a part that was specifically written to avoid comparison to the one made famous by the late singer.

The drama series, which also starred Harris, Nighy, Jimmi Simpson, and Kate Mulgrew, was transferred to Showtime in March 2021 because it better suited the cable network’s lineup of premium programming.

The rights to Tevis’ book and the 1976 film adaptation starring David Bowie are held by Studiocanal.

According to sources, the decision to forgo more Man Who Fell to Earth was made before the recent CEO transition at Showtime parent Paramount Global, when Chris McCarthy was given control of the cabler in place of David Nevins, who oversaw a portfolio that included Showtime.

It’s important to note that McCarthy, a rising star at the previous Viacom, hasn’t focused on high-end scripted content. McCarthy is in charge of a number of networks, including Paramount Network, MTV, VH1, and Comedy Central.
