Three months after being dealt a false “series finale” alarm, fans of Joe Pickett may now officially mourn its end.

TVLine has learned that the Western drama has finished its run after two seasons, and will not be returning for a third.

An adaptation of the novels by New York Times bestselling author C.J. Box, Joe Pickett starred New Zealand-born Michael Dorman as the titular Wyoming game warden. Season 1 aired in December 2021 on Spectrum, not long after which a second season was ordered. When Spectrum Originals closed up shop, Paramount+ grabbed the streaming rights to the first season and unaired second season, both of which will continue to be available on the service.

In Season 2 of the crime drama, Joe discovered a hunter murdered in the mountains and then realized his is just one of a series of gruesome murders. To solve the case and catch the killer, Joe dealt with a radical anti-hunting activist, a ghoulish set of twins living off the grid, and his own tortured past. In what turned out to be a series finale, Joe made an uneasy truce in his pursuit for justice; Shannon encountered an unexpected band of militia men hell-bent on silencing her; Marybeth and Cricket arranged a long overdue reunion; and McLanahan received an unexpected promotion.

As alluded to above, Paramount+ for a hot minute had accidentally touted the Season 2 finale as a “series finale” on its website, days before it debuted, but quickly corrected the “typo,” saying the acquired series’ fate at the time was still TBD.

Are you shocked by Joe Pickett‘s cancellation, or merely disappointed, seeing as the series had already cheated death once?
