‘Death and Other Details’ Canceled After One Season on Hulu


“Death and Other Details” has been canceled after just one season on Hulu. Variety Has confirmed.

The news comes just over three weeks after the Season 1 finale, which debuted on March 5. The cast included Violett Beane, Mandy Patinkin, Lauren Patten, Rahul Kohli, Angela Zhou, Hugo Diego García, Pardis Saremi and Linda Emond.

The official description of the series read: “Set amid the glamor of the global elite, ‘Death and Other Details’ centers on the brilliant and restless Imogene Scott (Beane), who finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time (okay, it was kind of his fault) and becomes the prime suspect in a locked room murder mystery. The adjustment? A luxuriously restored Mediterranean liner. Suspects? Every guest pampered and every crew member exhausted. The problem? To prove her innocence, she must team up with a man she despises: Rufus Cotesworth (Patinkin), the world’s greatest detective.

Mike Weiss and Heidi Cole McAdams wrote and executive produced the series, as well as serving as showrunners. Marc Webb directed the pilot and executive produced alongside Black Lamb’s Mark Martin. David Petrarca was also executive producer. ABC signature produced.

The show failed to make much of an impact on audiences upon its release, as it had never surpassed the Nielsen Top 10 streaming rankings since episodes began appearing on Hulu. Likewise, it found little love among critics, as the first season earned a 55% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

In his review for VarietyAramide Tinubu wrote: “(Due to) the large cast and constantly evolving plot, some episodes lack clarity. Also, not a single person lives on board the ship, except maybe that Derek, is nice. As the stories and secrets accumulate, the mystery becomes more of a confusing maze than an intriguing puzzle.”
