FX turns out the lights on 'Lights Out'

March 24, 2011 |  1:29 pm

Holt FX has given up the fight on its boxing drama, "Lights Out."

The critically praised but little-seen series will not return for a second season

The series, which starred Holt McCallany as a former heavyweight champion attempting a comeback after five years out of the ring, earned some positive reviews but could never catch on with a large audience.

FX President John Landgraf said in January that the series presented a challenge but that he was hopeful it would catch on despite a low-rated premiere. "Maybe we should have made a show about a zombie or a sexy vampire who is trying to regain the heavyweight championship of the world," he quipped.

The final two episodes will air March 29 and April 5 at 10 p.m.
