Film series director Brian De Palma has confirmed he is leaving the series after 20 years.
The news was confirmed in a series of tweets from De Palmas, who is currently in the middle of shooting the third and final season of his “The Exorcist” film series.
The final film will be released in 2018.
The first season premiered in 2005 and featured a cast of 13 actors.
The second season was released in 2007 and starred an even smaller cast of 16 actors.
De Palms death comes a month after he shared a statement on Twitter saying he was leaving the project, and that he and his wife were currently planning to have a child together.
DePalmas will continue to produce the series for HBO.
HBO declined to comment on the director’s departure, but said in a statement that it was “deeply saddened to learn of Brian DePalma’s passing.
The show will continue as we prepare for the final season, which we hope will be an exciting and moving final episode.
We are working closely with his family and friends to support their recovery.”
The end of film series director: De Palmans death comes amid a resurgence of controversy stemming from the film series “The End of The Line,” which featured several characters accused of murder and attempted murder.
De Parmas said he was not making any final decisions on the series when he tweeted that he was ending production on the film.
DeParmas also announced that he is ending production of “The Silence of the Lambs” and is directing the upcoming film “The Last Man on Earth.”
He is currently shooting the fourth and final film.
The film series was one of De Palmes most beloved projects, and was produced for HBO in 2005.
DePalmas is the second director to die in a year.

The production will continue on, but Bay is directing an entirely new episode of the series.
