Wellington, May 3 NZPA - An American TV show filmed in New Zealand, Legend of the Seeker, has been cancelled, the Pittsburgh Post-gazette reports.

One of its stars, Bridget Regan, also sent her fans a "tweet" : "Got some news that Seeker is no more. So sad to say goodbye to my NZ family but excited for what's next."

The season's viewership started at about 2.5 million in November, but the April 10 episode only drew about 2 million American viewers, which was apparently not strong enough to attract a new distributor for a third season.

The swords and sorcery series also featured Kiwi actors Jay Laga'aia, Danielle Cormack and Keisha Castle-Hughes, and is still broadcast in New Zealand on the Prime channel.

New Zealand actress Lucy Lawless hosted a promotion for the show in 2008, when the first series was filmed by executive producers, Sam Raimi and Lawless' husband, Rob Tapert, who were also behind the series Xena and Hercules.

The two Seeker series were filmed at the $7 million Studio 5 at Henderson Valley Studios, near Auckland.
