USA Network Cancels SHOOTER After Three Seasons


Shooter has come to an end after three seasons with USA Network’s decision to cancel the show starrng Ryan Philippe.

Based on the book series by Stephen Hunter, Shooter starred Phillippe (Secrets and Lies) as highly-decorated Marine Corps sniper Bob Lee Swagger, a man who was pulled back into the fray when his former commanding officer Isaac Johnson (played by ER‘s Omar Epps) asked for his assistance in preventing an assassination plot against the President of the United States. But when Swagger realized the truth — that he’d been set up to take the fall for another murder — he set out on a new mission to clear his name and keep his family safe.

Shooter this season is averaging 740,000 total viewers and just under a 0.2 demo rating, down sharply from Season 2’s 1.25 mil/0.35. There are five episodes remaining in the show’s final season.
