AMC To Decide Fate Of Struggling, Stellar <i>Rubicon</i> In Next Few Weeks

We could learn the fates of Will Travers, Truxton Spangler and the American Policy Institute within the next two to three weeks, according to AMC.

In a wide-ranging article at The Daily Beast tied to the Sunday premiere of The Walking, AMC President and General Manager Charlie Collier concedes the network has yet to make a decision about renewing Rubicon, the slow-boiling conspiracy thriller centered around an intelligence analyst at a national think tank.

The series' August premiere attracted 2 million viewers, making it the most-watched debut of an AMC original series. But the low-key drama, praised for its acting and atmosphere but sometimes criticized for its glacial pace and lack of answers, had difficulty maintaining an audience from week to week. (The season finale drew slightly more than 1 million viewers.) However, that doesn't mean we should write Rubicon's obituary -- or send it a four-leaf clover -- quite yet.

"We nurture projects like no one else," Collier tells The Daily Beast. "Season 1 has been a great success. I think it is a remarkable piece of television. Our job is to make sure we can continue to scale and fit it all in."
