LOS ANGELES (AP) — The TV reign of "Tyrant" is at an end on FX.

The drama's run will wrap with its third-season finale, FX said Wednesday — just hours before the episode was to air at 10 p.m. EDT.

"Tyrant" followed an American family that's become enmeshed in the tumultuous politics of a Middle Eastern country.

In a statement, Fox 21 Television Studios President Bert Salke called the show a "gem" and said the studio is eager to keep producing it.

But if "Tyrant" fails to find another home, he said, this week's episode will prove a "satisfying" end to the series.
