Showtime has opted to end the drama after four seasons, the period drama starring Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan wrapped in mid-November. The series from Michelle Ashford and based on Thomas Maier’s biography of sex researchers William Masters and Virginia Johnson ended with what actually makes a somewhat satisfying conclusion: Masters and Johnson getting married. Masters of Sex has never been a breakout ratings performer for the cabler. Season four averaged less than 800,000 total viewers, counting three days of delayed returns.
One thought on “‘Masters of Sex’ canceled after four seasons”
The love triangle in Season 3 made me stop watching the show. It’s a shame because it was a very progressive series.
