Shooter may not be getting a fourth season full stop.
Fans were disappointed when the assassin drama was apparently cancelled after three seasons in August, but Variety reports that it is being shopped around to other networks.
The series airs on the USA Network in the States and depleted ratings were thought to be the cause for the cancellation.
USA’s parent company Paramount Television and Universal Cable Productions announced that the series was being axed this August.
Like fellow USA Network show Suits, Shooter is shown on Netflix in the UK.
The news comes as another cancelled series ABC’s Designated Survivor (which streams on Netflix in the UK also) was picked up by Netflix after being cancelled.
So the streaming giant could be a natural fit to take the helm for a possible fourth run.
It also recently took on Lucifer after it was cancelled by Fox this summer.
WILL THERE BE ANOTHER SERIES OF SHOOTER?
If Shooter gets a fourth season then Ryan Phillippe will be returning as lead character marine and sniper Bob Lee Swagger.
Shantel VanSanten will likely be returning as Bob Lee’s wife, Julie Swagger.
Cynthia Addai-Robinson is set to return as Nadine Memphis along with Eddie McClintock as Jack Payne.
Others expected to return include Omar Epps as Isaac Johnson and Josh Stewart as Solotov.

What will happen in Shooter season 4?
Season three hasn’t completely finished airing yet, so the plot of a potential fourth season will depend on what happens in the upcoming finale.
The series is based on the 2007 film of the same name and the novel Point of Impact by Stephen Hunter.
It will continue to follow Phillippe’s character, an expert marksman living in exile, and his efforts to kill the President.
Is there a trailer for Shooter season 4?
There’s no season four trailer yet as the cancelled drama has yet to be saved.
We will update this article with the new trailer if and when one is released.
