Peter Sarsgaard Interrogation canceled

It's one and done for the CBS All Access drama, Interrogation. The streamer has canceled the Peter Sarsgaard drama series after only one season.

The series launched on February 6, 2020, and ran for ten episodes. The show is based on a real-life case that spans more than 20 years, centering on a young man charged and convicted of brutally murdering his mother. After being sentenced to life in prison, he continued to fight to prove his innocence. The series was structured to explore the one murder through ten separate interrogations.  Sarsgaard played the role of David Russell, the lead detective on the case.

The series also starred Kyle Gallner as Eric, the accused, David Strathairn as his father, Kodi Smit-McPhee as Chris Keller, a troubled and homeless teen who befriends Eric and Vincent D’Onofrio as Sgt. Ian Lynch, an Internal Affairs officer who ends up becoming Eric’s biggest ally. The streamer didn't give a specific reason as to why the show was being canceled but given that CBS All Access is rebranding as Paramount+ next year, it could be that the show doesn't fit with some of the content they want to bring to the new platform.
