Amazon has canceled dog competition series The package after a season.
The streamer has decided not to extend the series, which was hosted by Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn and her dog Lucy, for a second season.
It comes after the ten-part series debut in November.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) condemned the show, saying that “animals are individuals – not props for movies and TV shows,” but an Amazon spokeswoman said the charity’s statement did not affect the rejection decision.
The show that has been described as The amazing race with dogs, was produced by eOne’s own Naked and scared Producer Renegade 83 and Amazon Studios.
It featured twelve teams of dogs and their humans on an epic adventure on multiple continents. In each locale, the human and dog duos have gone through a series of challenges developed by a team of accredited veterinarians and certified canine experts who will also accompany the group on their journey.
The winning duo received a prize of $ 500,000. Another $ 250,000 went to an animal welfare organization of their choice. Amazon also donated $ 250,000 to several charities and animal rescue organizations in each country during filming to give to dogs and those who love them around the world.
It was Vonn’s first major hosting gig; She is widely regarded as one of the greatest female skiers of all time. She won four world championships and the gold medal in the downhill at the 2010 Winter Olympics, the first for an American. Your dog Lucy is a Cavalier King Charles.
Former Survivors Showrunner Jay Bienstock Exec co-produced with Jay Renfroe and David Garfinkle from Renegade 83.
The wrap was the first to report the cancellation.
