LOS ANGELES, June 30 (UPI) -- U.S. cable network Starz says it is not renewing its period drama "Camelot" for a second season.

The gritty, sexy series based on medieval Arthurian legend starred Joseph Fiennes, Jamie Campbell Bower and Eva Green.

"Due to significant production challenges, Starz has decided not to exercise the option for subsequent seasons of 'Camelot' with our production partners GK-tv, Octagon Films and Take 5 Productions," a Starz representative said in a statement issued to The Hollywood Reporter Thursday.

The entertainment industry trade newspaper said "Camelot" initially attracted a lot of viewers, but struggled to keep them against similarly themed programs such as "Game of Thrones" and "The Borgias."
