‘Maggie’s Farm’ director says the TV show will not air on AMC in 2018
Maggie’s Farm creator/executive producer Mark Harris says he won’t return to AMC anytime soon after the network cancelled the series in the spring.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Harris said he doesn’t plan to make a return to the network.
“We’re really not going to have a show on AMC anytime in 2018,” he said.
“And we’ve talked to AMC about this, and they said, ‘Well, it’s up to the studio to make that decision.'”
The cancellation of Maggie’s has been the subject of intense debate among fans.
AMC released a statement Monday announcing it will not renew the show for another season.
“The cancellation of this beloved series was a painful and painful blow to Maggie’s fans,” the network said.
However, the cancellation of the show has not dampened enthusiasm for the series on social media.
“It’s been great seeing this show growing and expanding, and now it’s time for Maggie’s to return to a place where it belongs, on television, where it will continue to be loved,” Harris said.
He went on to say he hopes to “bring back the show with Maggie’s back on the air.”
The series, which follows the life of Maggie as she tries to navigate the ups and downs of a family farm, premiered in 2014.
It was followed by two seasons in 2017, a fourth season in 2018, and a sixth season in 2019.
The series has been nominated for nine Emmys, including Outstanding Drama Series.
AMC announced Monday that it would be reopening Maggie’s season on October 13.
