Hallmark has canceled Ride, its Yellowstone-like drama about a bucolic but cash-strapped ranch that’s operated by a widowed parent who loses a beloved family member.
The drama starred Nancy Travis as matriarch Isabel Murray and Beau Mirchoff (Good Trouble), Jake Foy (Designated Survivor) and Marcus Rosner (Arrow) as her sons Cash, Tuff and Austin. Tiera Skovbye plays Austin’s wife, Missy. The first season launched in March.

Sherri Cooper-Landsman (Brothers and Sisters, Everwood) served as showrunner on the new drama about a rodeo dynasty with Rebecca Boss and Chris Masi (Our Kind of People). It was shot in Canada.
Deadline asked Cooper-Landsman about the drama’s inevitable comparisons to Yellowstone.
“Honestly, I never even thought about it,” she told us. “All I knew when I read it was that I could be a good contributor because this was just a great family. That’s my sweet spot. For me, it was just this beautiful ranch setting and this family going through the stuff that family goes through. And to be honest, I hadn’t even watched Yellowstone, so I did not even think about that. It just was this beautiful setting and a world that Becky really knew so well.”
