ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The story of the Manhattan Project will no longer be told on the small screen.

The WGN show has been cancelled after two seasons. The show got huge ratings when it first started, especially in New Mexico but the numbers have fallen steadily since then and it failed to draw a broad audience.

The show chronicled the lives of those immersed in the race to build the first atomic bomb during World War II.

Many of the loyal viewers were people whose family members worked on the real Manhattan Project in Los Alamos. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
