Dec. 22 (UPI) -- Starz has declined to renew its half-hour dramedy Sweetbitter for a third season.
The cancellation news was reported by Deadline.
The Hollywood Reporter said it was the result of middling ratings and mixed critical reviews.
Set in New York, the adaptation of Stephanie Danler's book starred Ella Purnell, Caitlin FitzGerald, Tom Sturridge, Paul Sparks, Evan Jonigkeit, Eden Epstein, Jasmine Mathews and Daniyar.
The show, which aired its last episode in August, followed a young woman working in a chic restaurant.
Purnell was recently announced as a cast member for the new Showtime series, Yellowjackets.
