Prime Video has cancelled The Peripheral season 2 despite positive reviews.
The show's cancellation, which occurred only six months after it was renewed for another season, is reportedly linked to the ongoing strikes by the Writer's Guild of America and SAG-AFTRA, according to sources.
The cancellation of the show is a major setback for producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, who previously faced a similar situation with the cancellation of Westworld.
