Netflix’s ”Marco Polo” won’t get a third season.
The online streamer has opted not to renew the series about the 13th century merchant and explorer, which launched in 2014.
The first Netflix original series developed in the US for a global market, “Marco Polo” stars Lorenzo Richelmy, Benedict Wong, Joan Chen, and Remy Hii.
It’s been suggested that the show’s large budget and dwindling viewership played a part in it’s demise.
“We want to thank and are grateful to our partners on Marco Polo from the actors, whose performances were enthralling and top-notch; to the committed producers, including John Fusco, Dan Minahan, Patrick Macmanus, and their crew, who poured their hearts into the series; and of course Harvey, David and our friends at TWC, who were great collaborators from start to finish,” said Cindy Holland, Netflix VP of Original Content.
