Imposters was cancelled by Bravo after just two seasons, as the show had received relatively low ratings in its second season than anticipated.
Imposters announced that it would be coming to an end in 2018, after two seasons on Bravo. The show, which centred around a persona-shifting con artist who was caught up in a chasing game with her three most recent victims, had begun with a promising start, however, ratings reportedly dwindled after the second season premiere. Executive producer, Paul Adelstein, shared a series of tweets in June 2018 to inform audience members that the season two finale would also serve as the ending of the entire show.
He stated, “Thank you for being such a passionate, engaged, and wonderful audience. Imposters has been a labour of love for us, and we are gratified that it found the audience it did… While next weeks’ finale wasn’t intended as a series finale, it will certainly function to keep Maddie, Ezra, Jules, Richard, Max, Patrick, Sally, and Sofia rolling around in your imaginations for quite a while. I mean, is Maddie going to… and will Ezra really start to well, now you’ll have to decide for yourselves. And of course, we want to hear what you think. While this is massively disappointing, thank you again for tuning in.”
According to TVLine, eight weeks into season two, Imposters averaged at 420 000 total viewers and just over a 0.1 demo rating, which was not enough for it to be renewed by Bravo.
