After two months of searching for a new home for the cult favorite dramedy, creator Jim Gavin took to Twitter to announce that Lodge 49 is officially closing its doors after failing to find a new place to air the Wyatt Russell (Everybody Wants Some!!)-starring series.

DEAR LYNX, it breaks my heart to announce that LODGE 49 won’t be going forward. We tried very hard to find a new home, but there were no takers. Ratings, metrics, algorithms…que sera, brah. I will write a proper postscript soon, but for now a few thoughts. (thread)

Written, created, and executive produced by Jim Gavin, Lodge 49 is a modern fable set in Long Beach and centers on Dud (Wyatt Russell), a likable ex-surfer who found himself deposited by fate at the doorstep of Lodge 49, home to the Ancient and Benevolent Order of the Lynx, a dusty dying fraternal order.
Season two of this modern fable finds Dud, now a “Squire,” and the Ancient and Benevolent Order of the Lynx suffering under new rule by an ill-suited leader. Despite the lost faith of his “Knight” and mentor, Ernie (Brent Jennings), and his twin sister Liz’s (Sonya Cassidy) struggle with their past, Dud believes he is the key to restoring the Lodge to its former grandeur and putting the rightful king on the throne.
