The battle at the Paramount Network is over, as the cable channel has reportedly cancelled the 68 Whiskey TV series, so there will not be any further season of the series. It is a comedy-drama series, and it follows a multicultural band of the Army medics that are stationed on a base named as The Orphanage in Afghanistan. The medics sometimes navigate an absurd and dangerous world together, relying on various vices, comradery, and occasionally, a profound sense of purpose to carry them through.
The synopsis of the series says that this Kafkaesque world leads them to self-destructive appetites, intense camaraderie, outrageous behaviour, and occasionally, a profound sense of purpose. It is the United States adaptation of the Charlie Golf One, the Israeli TV series. The show has reportedly been cancelled by the creators of the show, which is Paramount Network, on September 2.
The fans of the series were eagerly waiting for the series to be renewed for a second season, but sadly they won’t be getting the Season 2 of the series as it has been cancelled. This cancellation of the series came as a huge shock to the fans of the series, and they really want the reason behind this.

The 68 Whiskey first season was able to achieve an average of 0.10 rating in the selected demographics of 18-49 and a total of 499,000 viewers. Paramount Network has very few original scripted series, so it will be difficult to tell whether it is going to be considered as a success or not. The third season of Yellowstone recently wrapped up with an average of 0.75 demo rating and a total of 3.91 million viewers. Meanwhile, other series were able to draw numbers that are closer to 68 Whiskey’s Paramount does have a brand new series, Coyote in the pipeline, starring Michael Chiklis.
Well, now we do know that the ratings of the show declined through the first season, but the show was able to gather a cult following.
