No Renewal for 'Camelot'

Jun 30, 2011 | 3:03pm EDT

ALTStarz has opted not to renew its period series Camelot after just one season -- and perhaps after one too many viewers bolted for Game of Thrones.

The network's decision was reportedly based somewhat on schedule conflicts with its lead actors Joseph Fiennes, Jamie Campbell Bower and Eva Green.

However, reaction from both critics and viewers -- who basically jumped ship after the premiere and came back for the finale -- was lukewarm, and for a show that presumably operates on almost movie-like budget, anything but huge ratings (or a ratings trend in upward direction) would probably have forced Starz to cancel.
