“While it’s sad that The Path is ending, I’m brimming with gratitude and pride,” Goldberg said. “It was a gift to be able to tell challenging and emotional stories for three seasons in this very strange and unique world."

She continued, "The caliber of talent and passion everyone who worked on this show brought — from my partners Jason Katims and Michelle Lee, the execs at Hulu, the writers, actors, directors, designers, and crew — was something to behold, and for which I’m very thankful. Thanks Hulu and Universal Television for taking a shot on this show, it was a life changing experience.”

The show's official page also tweeted out a message confirming the cancellation.

"Our path has come to an end," the message read. "Thank you to our amazing fans for three amazing seasons. You are our light."

Paul, Monaghan and Dancy have not yet addressed the cancellation.

Fans on Twitter seem disappointed at the news, but were still grateful they got three seasons of the series.

"That‘s sad," one fan wrote. "In that case I‘d like to thank ... the whole cast and crew for this amazing journey!! All the best for you and the upcoming projects."

Another fan added, "While I'm sorry to see it end, it's a beautifully done show that I'm happy to have enjoyed."
