Heartbreaking news for fans of Outer Range today. Variety reports that the show has been canceled at Amazon Prime Video.

The Josh Brolin-led series was part Western, part sci-fi mystery and part time-travel saga. It was filled with fascinating mysteries and complex characters and it got incredibly wacky and off-the-wall in Season 2. Season 1 ended with a crazy twist, and Season 2 set up a lot of really interesting storylines that badly needed a third season. We have so many questions and now they’ll never be answered. It’s tragic. A part of me regrets ever watching it now.

Other cast members included Imogen Poots, Lili Taylor, Tamara Podemski, Lewis Pullman, Tom Pelphrey, Noah Reid, Shaun Sipos, Isabel Arraiza, Olive Abercrombie, and Will Patton and Charles Murray served as showrunner and executive producer.

The reason for the the show’s cancelation is not clear at this time, but the story of Royal Abbott and his sons, of the mysterious Autumn and her dark quest, and the absolute insanity of the rival Tillerson family is no more, swallowed up by some great hole in the heart of Amazon’s executives. Outer Range seemed to fare well enough with critics, audiences and Nielson ratings so this comes as something of a surprise.

Outer Range is not the first sci-fi drama to be canceled by Amazon recently. The Peripheral, which also received critical acclaim, was axed after just one season. Elsewhere, HBO has cancelled sci-fi shows like Raised By Wolves, Scavengers Reign and Westworld, while other series—like Severance and Silo on Apple TV—hang on for dear life. It seems that there is a direct correlation between how many questions are left unanswered and the likelihood that a show will end before its time.
