LOS ANGELES, Oct. 1 (UPI) -- David Duchovny's 1960s-set drama Aquarius has been canceled after two seasons.

Variety and The Hollywood Reporter shared the news Saturday.

The show co-starred Gethin Anthony, Emma Dumont, Grey Damon, Claire Holt, Ambyr Childers, Madisen Beaty, Cameron Deane, Michaela McManus, Brían F. O'Byrne and Chance Kelly.

"America in the 1960s was a land of tumult and transformation. Across the country, institutions were rocked by protests both violent and peaceful, assassinations became an all-too common occurrence and each day brought a new headline that spoke to the painful process that the country was going through: revolution. No city felt this pain more than Los Angeles," a synopsis of the series said.

"Los Angeles Police Department Detective Sam Hodiak served his country in the Pacific Ocean theater during World War II, and now protects his city in the late '60s. When an old flame tells him that her daughter, Emma Karn, has gone missing, he jumps to action. His search leads him to find Emma living with a group of hippies led by a dirty, slight but violent figure named Charles Manson. As he digs deeper to try and pull her out, Hodiak's suit-and-tie worldview is attacked by the same peace-and-love mantra that is challenging institutions across America."
