Starz Cancels ‘Blunt Talk’

Patrick Stewart comedy series ends after two seasons

Starz has turned the lights off on its comedy series Blunt Talk after two seasons, the network confirmed Tuesday.

The series, which starred Patrick Stewart as an out of control TV personality, ended its second season last week (Dec. 11). The series was created by Jonathan Ames and executive produced by Seth MacFarlane. Starz placed the two-season order for the series in 2014. The cancelation was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

"We are grateful to Jonathan and Patrick for the tirades and laughs that Walter Blunt delivered to fans with such aplomb,” said Carmi Zlotnik, Starz president of programming in a statement. “While Walter may not be returning to the airwaves, we are incredibly proud of the work that was done these past two seasons by our wonderful partners and collaborators on Blunt Talk, from Seth Macfarlane and our studio MRC, to our actors, writers and crew. It was a very special show with a heartfelt message. It was an honor serving you, Major."
