Strange Empire will not be returning for a second season, the CBC confirmed Monday.

The one-hour Western drama bowed on the CBC this fall, with season one featuring 13 episodes, and had an average audience of 308,000 (2+) during its run in the 9 p.m. Monday slot, according to Numeris data provided by CBC.

The series, set in 1869, tells the story of a group of women who band together after the men in their Montana-Alberta border town are murdered.

The show was created and executive produced by Laurie Finstad with Tim Johnson and Jeff Sagansky also serving as executive producers. The series was produced by Janestown Productions in association with Johnson Production Group.

The CBC says it will announce more programming changes later this week.
