WE tv Cancels 'The Divide' After One Season

thedivide3

WE tv's first foray into the scripted series world has come and gone. The Divide, which was created by Scandal's Tony Goldwyn and his partner Richard LaGravenese, has been cancelled and will not get a second season.

WE tv described The Divide as an exploration of personal morality and how all people – especially ambitious people – struggle with the shades of gray found in the absence of a simple, ordered moral universe.

“We are extremely proud of The Divide and grateful to its brilliant creators, Richard LaGravenese and Tony Goldwyn, and an amazing cast and crew, for bringing this story to life as WE tv’s first scripted series," the network said in a statement issued.
