Amazon Studios Pulls Plug On Chris Carter's 'The After'
What has come as a surprise to many, Amazon Studios has decided not to move forward with the Chris Carter series The After.
As first reported exclusively by Variety, the series would have marked Carter's first return to television since his hit series The X-files. The After follows eight strangers who are thrown together by mysterious forces and must help each other survive in a violent world that defies explanation. The cast included Adrian Pasdar, Aldis Hodge, Jamie Kennedy and Sharon Lawrence.
The After along with Bosch were the first two dramas picked up by Amazon Studios in March of 2014. Both pilots received great fan response and that led to them both being picked up to series. This is the first time Amazon Studios has given the greenlight for a series only to rescind the order.
