If you managed to catch the first episode of Sky One’s latest US police procedural drama The Chicago Code last night, then you wasted your sweet, sweet time.

Turns out Shawn Ryan, who’s previous series The Shield was a massive success, yesterday used Twitter to inform fans of the unfortunate news that Fox producers have pulled the plug on his show. The Hollywood Reporter later confirmed that:

Shawn Ryan’s freshman police drama The Chicago Code with Jason Clarke, Jennifer Beals and Matt Lauria is done. This is The Shield creator’s second cancellation this season; the first came with FX’s Terriers, which was not renewed for a second season. The showrunner reacted on Twitter, “Fox suits loved the show, but have a business to run.”

So there you go, it’s entirely up to you if you want continue watching this doomed series which is currently airing on Sky One on Thursdays at 9pm.
