Was Season 5 of In the Dark canceled by The CW? ...

Why is there no CW season 5 of In the Darkseason 5? Tonight's episode, unfortunately, is both the season 4 and the series finale.

At this point, it goes without saying that some people wanted to see the program continue, and we totally understand that. The conclusion tonight is bittersweet; we can be sad that this is it, but also happy that we got so much of Murphys story in the first place.

The only silver lining between the two shows that ended tonight is the simple fact that producers knew that it might be sold in advance. Even though The CW has only recently sold to Nexstar Media Group, they knew behind the scenes for a while that it was up for sale. However, there was an opportunity for writers to give some of their shows closure.

Wed like to assume that there might be a season 5 elsewhere, but it's improbable. A non-franchise show with lower ratings would have to get a second chance, therefore the #1 thing we want is simply an opportunity for the cast to work together on something else down the road. Additionally, that this audience is dedicated to it from the start.
