Starz cancels “Camelot” in its first season
By Kim Palacios
hollywoodnews.com: Despite the success of shows of a similar genre, Starz’s “Camelot” lacks the strength to succeed—the network announced that its first season (which has aired 10 episodes so far) will be its last.
Stiff competition from Showtime’s “The Borgias” and HBO’s “Game of Thrones” eroded value that the Starz network hoped to extract from a potential viewer base that seemed ready for an Arthurian-themed show. The success of other period dramas like “The Tudors” invited replication, but ultimately “Camelot” could not compete.
