Frank Darabont's Mob City has closed for business after network TNT decided to not to renew the gangster drama for a second season.

Despite the slick production values and stellar cast, the show was a rating disappointment, garnering only 801,000 adults 18-49 on debut.

TNT is still proud of the work they did, with a spokesperson for the network saying:

Mob City was created as a three-week television event and we are incredibly proud of the six hours we presented of this remarkable drama. Although the ratings of the limited series haven’t warranted more hours we are eager to work with Frank Darabont again and were delighted to bring the vibrant world of Mob City to life.

The cancellation of Mob City must be doubly hard on writer/director Darabont, whose original labor of love - AMC's The Walking Dead - continues to smash ratings records season after season. TV land can be a cruel place on occasion.

Are you sad to see Mob City go? Let me know in the comments below.
