In a surprising turn of events, A&E has canceled Akil The Fugitive Hunter after only one season, and only really a couple of episodes in.
“Akil the Fugitive Hunter,” combines live-action and animation to chronicle the journey of modern-day superhero Akil Muhammad as he tracks and captures some of the most elusive criminals in Los Angeles in order to keep his community safe. Narrated by actor and activist Wood Harris (“The Wire”), the 10 episode half-hour series featured original animation from influential animator Carl Jones (“Black Dynamite”) and original music from multiplatinum singer and producer Ty Dolla $ign, who also serves as executive music producer for the series.
Akil Muhammad released the following statement regarding the future of the series:
@aetv has opted not to air the remaining episodes of Akil The Fugitive Hunter at this time. Thank you to all the supporters of the show. As you know, with most superhero stories, just when you think the villain has gotten the best of them, they return BIGGER and STRONGER than before. Continue to be on the look out for Akil in the future. He has a way of showing up when you least expect it. TO BE CONTINUED……
