'Jean Claude Van Johnson,' Which Co-Starred Phylicia Rashad As Secret Ops Boss, Canceled At Amazon

Jean Claude Van Johnson is done at Amazon after one, five-episode season.

It stars martial artist and actor Jean-Claude Van Damme as “Jean-Claude Van Damme,” a global martial arts and film sensation…and, operating under the simple alias of ‘Johnson,” the most dangerous undercover operative in the world. Unhappily retired, he’s now whiling away his days in superficial Hollywood… until a chance encounter with a lost love lures him back into the game, eventually forcing him to confront the greatest enemy he’s ever faced: a Bulgarian drug cartel. Rashad co-starred as his boss, the head of a secret-ops group.

This comes as Amazon is overhauling its scripted content. Along with Van Johnson, I Love Dick ând One Mississippi were also canceled. Amazon also didn’t pickup any of its comedy pilots, including Diarra Kilpatrick’s The Climb.

The only current series that remain are  Transparent, Mozart In the Jungle and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Bosch and The Tick.

Now, Amazon is moving toward confident straight-to-series orders for its upcoming series.

This includes Julia Roberts and Stephan James in Homecoming and Jessie T. Usher in The Boys.
