This coming Friday’s season two finale of the drama series Magic City will also act as the show’s series finale.  Starz announced today (via THR) that it has opted not to move forward with a third season of the Jeffrey Dean Morgan-fronted show, which takes place in 1959 Miami and centers on the owner of a glamorous hotel.  The series suffered from low ratings and mixed critical reception throughout its run, so Starz’s decision isn’t necessarily surprising.  Spartacus still remains the only Starz original series to last longer than two seasons, but the network has plenty of new offerings in the coming months.  The Michael Bay­-produced pirate drama Black Sails begins in January and Battlestar Galactica showrunner Ronald D. Moore’s adaptation of the Diana Gabaldon series Outlander just received a series order.  Moreover, David S. Goyer‘s period series Da Vinci’s Demons was renewed for a second season.
