FX’s Tyrant is abdicating its reign. In a surprise move, the network announced today that the Middle East–set drama will end with tonight’s season-three finale. “We feel the show is a gem and we’d love to find a way to keep it in production,” Fox 21 Television Studios president Bert Salke said in a statement. “That said, we want to be realistic about its prospects. So for its loyal audience, tonight’s episode will be a satisfying end should the series not find another home, but also provides interesting possibilities should we be able to continue on some other platform.” Rally the Tyr-hards, there’s one battle left to fight.
