The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news that the show’s season finale this Sunday will be its last episode.
“While this may be the end of the Calloways’ story, we do believe that the themes ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ confronted over the seasons, through a unique mix of humor and sober observation, will be appreciated for the insightful, heartfelt way they were addressed,” Starz president Chris Albrecht said in a statement to THR. “We are proud of the show.”
Starz is saying goodbye to the show to make room for several new original series including the Latino drama “Vida” and “Sweetbitter,” a TV adaptation of Stephanie Danler’s best-selling book from executive producer Brad Pitt.
“Survivor’s Remorse,” which stars Jessie T. Usher, RonReaco Lee, and Erica Ash, is about a young basketball phenom just starting his pro career with his family in Atlanta. Though its ratings didn’t exactly light the world on fire during its four seasons, the program was well received by critics and viewers alike.
For James and business partner Maverick Carter, “Survivor’s Remorse” represented the first successful production for their fledging media company, SpringHill Entertainment.
James, who tips off another season with the Cavaliers on October 17, and Carter are currently developing a couple of new projects: a comedy about sneaker culture for HBO and a limited series about the life of entrepreneur and social activist Madam C.J. Walker starring Octavia Spencer.
The “Survivor’s Remorse” series finale airs on Starz this Sunday at 10 p.m.
