It has been reported that the television series Matador has been cancelled after just one season on El Rey, much to the disappointment of its cast and crew.
Prior to its series premiere back in July, it had been announced that the new television series Matador had been picked up by El Rey for a second season and, following some rather positive ratings and responses in the US, it was expected that the second season would definitely be given the green light.
Unfortunately though, Matador has not managed to perform so well on a global scale and, following poor ratings and reviews overseas, it has now been announced that we will not get a second season, with Matador being cancelled, much to the disappointment of those involved with the series.
Matador was brought to us by Sin City director Robert Rodriguez and boasted a rather impressive cast including Nicly Whelan, Gabriel Luna and Alfred Molina, all of whom seemed very proud of the show. Nicky, in particular, would regularly take to her social media accounts to promote Matador, which was actually a rather interesting and entertaining series.
For those of you who have never seen the show, Matador focuses on a DEA Agent named Tony Bravo, who decides to go undercover as a professional soccer player, playing for the LA Riot, as he tries to spy on and uncover the illegal doings of the clubs corrupt owner. The season one finale of Matador aired back on October 7 and season two was expected to premiere in 2015 before it was officially cancelled.
