Prime Video cancels Canadian detective drama ‘Three Pines’

Three Pines

Amazon Prime Video has cancelled Left Bank Pictures’ detective drama series Three Pines after one season.

The cancellation comes just over three months since the 8 x 60-minute series made its December 2022 debut on the streaming service in the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway and Greenland.

The show is distributed by Left Bank parent company Sony Pictures Television outside of those territories.

Based on the Chief Inspector Armand Gamache novels by Canadian author Louise Penny, the Canadian Amazon original series starred Alfred Molina in the lead role of the detective as he investigated a series of murders in the idyllic town of Three Pines.

Emilia di Girolamo, who was lead writer on the first season, confirmed the cancellation in a social media post.

“I actually left the show last year to work on another project and was not involved in the conversations and negotiations around renewal but I have been told Left Bank, Sony and Prime Video all wanted to bring the show back but were unable to reach a mutually beneficial agreement,” she revealed.

Actor Elle-Maija Tailfeathers, who portrayed the character Isabelle Lacoste in the series, also confirmed the cancellation, writing:

“Thank you to everyone who watched and supported the show. It meant the world to me knowing that this show resonated with such a massive global audience. As an Indigenous actor, I never thought I’d have the opportunity to be the leading woman on a #1 show like this. It was huge. Our stories matter and this show demonstrated that audiences, regardless of background, are hungry for Indigenous content.”
