Discovery has canceled its second gun-themed series, Gun Country.
The cancellation news comes just a few days after the announcement that the network would be canceling American Guns.
Fox News reports that Discovery didn’t give a reason as to why they canceled American Guns, only saying “Discovery Channel chose not to renew the series and has no plans to air repeats of the show.’
It’s suspected the show was canceled due to the tragic shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
The network didn’t give a reason for Gun Country’s cancellation either, but in October, host Ted Nugent said “We expect that there will be at least a dozen shows a year.”
It hasn’t been announced if Sons of Guns will be renewed yet, and The History Channel, Outdoor Channel and TruTV haven’t responded to requests for comment on whether or not they will keep their gun-related shows on the air in light of the fatal shooting of 28 people at Sandy Hook elementary last Friday.
