The series was cancelled after 3 seasons because Jonas Armstrong had decided that he did not want to a fourth season and wanted to leave the series, so he could move on to other projects. The showrunners could not figure out a way to keep the series going without its main star and since Maid Marian had died at the end of the previous season, it was decided Robin was to die at the end of the third season.
