FX will say goodbye to its drama series Tyrant after its season three finale tonight, FX confirmed Wednesday.
The season three finale of Tyrant – which follows a fictional middle-eastern tyrant and his family – will air at 10 pm tonight. The series is executively produced by Howard Gordon, Chris Keyser, Gideon Raff and Avi Nir.
“It’s very difficult to find common ground with other people whose stories we do not know or understand,” said John Landgraf, CEO of FX Networks and FX Productions in a statement. “The creators of Tyrant have done their utmost over three seasons to tell American audiences a tiny fraction of the many gripping, human stories coursing through the Middle East today. We want to thank Howard Gordon, Chris Keyser and their talented team of collaborators, including all the writers, directors, cast and crew, as well as our studio partners at Fox 21 Television Studios, for taking on Tyrant’s tremendously ambitious story with such profound dedication and respect.”
