Starz has canceled Dangerous Liaisons, reversing its early Season 2 renewal. The eight-episode first season’s final three episodes will air on their scheduled dates.
According to Deadline, the period drama’s executive producers are actively seeking buyers. Before the show’s Nov. 6 premiere, the renewal of Dangerous Liaisons for Season 2 was announced on Nov. 1.
The prequel to the well-known novel from the eighteenth century struggled to find an audience, which led to the show’s cancellation, though sources claim Starz brass still believes in the show’s creative potential.

Even though the show’s ratings slightly increased after airing on December 4, it has yet to reach a six-figure L+SD audience. Data on delayed viewing and streaming audiences on the Starz app, where Dangerous Liaisons was anticipated to do the majority of its business, have not been made public by Starz.
Alice Englert plays the Marquise de Merteuil in the historical drama, and Nicholas Denton plays the Vicomte de Valmont. It tells the tale of how the two well-known figures first met in Paris on the eve of the revolution.
Tom Wlaschiha, Hakeem Kae-Kazim, Colette Dalal Tchantcho, Michael McElhatton, Hilton Pelser, Fisayo Akinade, Kosar Ali, Carice Van Houten, and Nathanael Saleh also star.
The second-period drama to be canceled at Starz is Dangerous Liaisons, which was produced by Lionsgate TV, Playground Entertainment, and Flame Ventures. The first, Becoming Elizabeth, debuted in November.
