Hit police drama axed after just one series amid string of cancellations | The Sun

A HIT police drama has been axed after just one series amid a string of cancellations.

East New York aired on CBS in America, but the US network has decided not to renew it for a second season.

The decision came after lengthy negotiations with the show's lead studio, Warner Bros. Television.

East New York – which UK viewers can watch via Paramount+ -followed Regina Haywood (Amanda Warren) who was the newly promoted deputy inspector of East New York, an impoverished, working-class neighbourhood at the eastern edge of Brooklyn.

She lead a diverse group of officers and detectives, but faced resistance from some who were reluctant to use her more creative methods of serving and protecting.

Deadline reports that the TV show was reportedly competing for the same slot as S.W.A.T, which CBS had made a shock U-turn on and had decided to renew for a seventh and final series, despite initially axing it at the end of last week.

As well as East New York, CBS also announced it would not be renewing the TV series True Lies.

The TV version of True Lies – which is available on Disney+ in the UK – starred Steve Howey and Ginger Gonzaga.

It followed Harry (Howey), a first-class international spy for U.S. intelligence agency Omega Sector, and his wife, Helen (Gonzaga), a language professor bored with her daily routine.
