It’s last call for the TV series “Deputy.”

The freshman show starring Stephen Dorff wasn’t renewed for a second season.

The majority of the show was filmed in Albuquerque after production moved from Atlanta after the pilot episode.

Dorff played Bill Hollister, a fifth-generation lawman, who is thrust into the role of Los Angeles County Sheriff.

The show also starred Yara Martinez, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Brian Van Holt, Shane Paul McGhie and Mark Moses.

The series got off to a strong start with 4.7 million viewers when it premiered on Jan. 2. Throughout the season, it averaged around 3.6 million viewers. This made it the second-lowest rated dramatic series of the season for Fox.

The pilot episode was filmed in Atlanta and the series was given a pickup at Fox on May 9.

Pre-production began in August, and filming began Sept. 22 in and around Albuquerque.

It was housed at I-25 Studios, where the studio has been at capacity during the majority of 2019.

Van Holt took to Instagram after the show was canceled by Fox. He played Detective Cade Ward.

“Just got word that our show is canceled. Deeply saddened and frustrated. But grateful for the opportunity and time I spent with my fellow actors, crew and everybody involved with this show. Especially my brothers and sisters behind the badge,” he wrote. “And most importantly a massive thank you to the fans who gave us so much love and support. You get it. Sending all of you my love and gratitude. Now Cade is going to knock this back in honor of all of the people that left it all out there for this show.”

Co-star Martinez, who played Dr. Paula Reyes also posted via social media about the show and not wanting to let her character go.

“… I’m so grateful to the exceptional cast, crew, and our fans. Thank you for opening up your hearts and home to our TV family. Sending all of you a big warm hug,” she wrote.
