Lilyhammer, the Netflix drama starring guitarist Steven Van Zandt of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, has been cancelled. Netflix confirmed the decision Tuesday.
The streaming service's chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, told The Hollywood Reporter, "We're not going to continue with Lilyhammer, it's become a very economically-challenged deal because there's a partnership with the Norwegian broadcaster.
"It was very difficult to maintain the level of global exclusivity and control that we hope to with our shows with that show and the way it was structured with the Norwegian broadcaster. We're big fans of the show," he continued.
Van Zandt -- who played a New York mob boss who relocated to the Norwegian city of Lillehammer after joining the witness protection program -- recently tweeted, "#Lilyhammer RIP. Not my decision. Let's just say for now the business got too complicated. Very proud of our 24 shows. New ideas on the way."
In addition to his starring role as Frank "The Fixer" Tagliano, Van Zandt also served as the series' executive producer, co-writer and musical director.
Three seasons of Lilyhammer were produced, the last of which premiered in November.
