Disney’s ABC has revealed that the drama series, “The Company You Keep” has decided not to renew the show for a second season and is now cancelled.

The drama series has aired on ABC and Hulu in the United States. The series has also been released as a Star Original on Disney+ in many countries, including Australia and New Zealand. The finale only aired on ABC last weekend.

The series tells the story of what happens when a night of passion leads to love between con man Charlie and undercover CIA officer Emma, who are unknowingly on a collision course professionally. While Charlie ramps up the “family business” so he can get out for good, Emma’s closing in on the vengeful criminal who holds Charlie’s family debts in hand – forcing them to reckon with the lies they’ve told so they can save themselves and their families from disastrous consequences. The series is based on the Korean Broadcasting System series entitled “My Fellow Citizens.”

The series has struggled to get viewers on its Sunday night slot on ABC, pulling in just over two million viewers on average per episode each week.

“The Company You Keep” stars Milo Ventimiglia as Charlie, Catherine Haena Kim as Emma, William Fichtner as Leo, Tim Chiou as David, Freda Foh Shen as Grace, James Saito as Joseph, Sarah Wayne Callies as Birdie, Felisha Terrell as Daphne and Polly Draper as Fran.

The Executive producers and co-showrunners for the show include are Julia Cohen and Phil Klemmer, Milo Ventimiglia and Russ Cundiff (DiVide Pictures), Jon M. Chu and Caitlin Foito (Electric Somewhere), Todd Harthan and Lindsay Goffman (Gratitude Productions). Deanna Harris (DiVide Pictures) is a producer. The series is produced by 20th Television, a part of Disney Television Studios.

Disney announced earlier this week during its quarterly financial results investors call, that it will be removing content from its streaming service and writing off almost $2 billion in costs. So it’s likely that “The Company You Keep” could be removed in the future from Disney’s streaming services as studios have started writing off cancelled shows for tax benefits and also to reduce costs. So if you want to watch “The Company You Keep” for the first time or perhaps to rewatch it, I’d suggest doing it soon, as its very possible one day it’ll be gone like many other recent cancelled shows.
