IN NEWS that is sure to dismay many Timothy V Murphy fans, it was confirmed today that FX has decided to cancel the Tralee mans new show after only one season.
The Oakpark born and incredibly likable actor had teamed up with his old friend and ‘Sons of Anarchy’ creator Kurt Sutter to work on the period drama, ‘The Bastard Executioner’ in which Murphy played the quiet and deadly, Father Ruskin.
It was reported that the programme was just not garnering the necessary viewing figures needed to justify the cost of filming the Wales based show.
Murphy, who starred in the recent second series of ‘True Detective’ and as Galen O’Shay in the hugely popular ‘Sons of Anarchy’ is certainly used to the incredibly demanding nature of the TV industry by now and will no doubt dust himself off from this setback.
At least he got to meet Ed Sheeran.
