Murder mystery series experienced a huge boom in recent years, but some of them struggle to make a splash. Death and Other Details is a case in point, and Hulu announced its cancelation just three weeks after Season 1 concluded its run.

Created for Hulu by Heidi Cole McAdams and Mike Weiss, Death and Other Details took us to a lavishly restored Mediterranean ocean liner, which serves as the setting for a locked-room murder mystery. Brilliant and restless Imogene Scott becomes a prime suspect after finding herself in the wrong place at the wrong time and must prove her innocence to the world’s greatest detective Rufus Cotesworth.

Violett Beane and Mandy Patinkin led the cast of this series as Imogene Scott and Rufus Cotesworth, with Lauren Patten, Rahul Kohli, Angela Zhou, Hugo Diego Garcia, Pardis Saremi, and Linda Emond in supporting roles.

Death and Other Details premiered on Hulu on January 16 with two episodes, and its cancelation comes three weeks after the first season ended its run with a two-episode finale on March 5.

Hulu didn’t give a reason for the show’s cancelation, but it’s not a huge shocker since Death and Other Details failed to break into Nielsen’s weekly Top 10 streaming ratings and holds a 55% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
