CBS is closing its Zoo.
The network has opted to cancel the summer scripted drama series starring James Wolk after three seasons.
Produced in-house at CBS Television Studios, the drama was based on the best-seller about a wave of violent animal attacks against humans by author/executive producer James Patterson. Zoo was one of the network’s pricey scripted series that used the business model created by Under the Dome where Netflix signed a deal with CBS Television Studios to stream the show after its seasons were completed. The model created the ability to do expensive scripted shows in the typically little-watched summer months as the show was profitable off the bat thanks to the Netflix pact.
Per sources, the are no current plans to shop Zoo Season 4 to other outlets.
