By design, TV shows involve a lot more hours of content than movies — but not even they last forever. EW has confirmed that the TV remake of Fatal Attraction has been canceled by Paramount+ after one season — as has Rabbit Hole, which starred Kiefer Sutherland as a corporate spy on the run from an international cabal.
One good note for fans of either is that, unlike so many recent axed shows, they will not be dropped from the streaming service altogether.
"Fatal Attraction and Rabbit Hole will not be returning for second seasons on Paramount+," a spokesperson said in a statement. "We want to thank both series' entire creative teams, crews and the fantastic casts for their dedication to bringing these series to life. Both Fatal Attraction and Rabbit Hole will continue to be available on Paramount+ for audiences to discover."

Adapted from the 1987 film of the same name, Fatal Attraction starred Lizzy Caplan as Alex Forrest, a woman who gets increasingly violent as she refuses to let her affair with L.A. district attorney Dan Gallagher (Joshua Jackson) end as quickly as he'd like. In the original film, Michael Douglas and Glenn Close played those roles with the same names, though different occupations and based in New York instead of L.A. In a change from the film, the show had an additional timeline set 15 years later, with Dan getting out of jail after being wrongfully accused of killing Alex.
It does make sense for the show to end after a single season, though, since the finale revealed Alex's real murderer — though EW critic Kristen Baldwin called the revelation "ludicrous" and "largely devoid of logic."
Meanwhile, Rabbit Hole starred Sutherland as John Weir, a corporate spy adept at deception and ruining lives who gets a taste of his own medicine when a mysterious cabal frames him for murder. Though not explicitly adapted from a film in the way Fatal Attraction was, Rabbit Hole was hugely inspired by the "from hunter to hunted" story of Three Days of the Condor, Sutherland told EW earlier this year.
