Hercules in the Maze of the Minotaur was the last one produced. It served mostly as a "clip show" of the previous movies as a lead up to the series.
The show was cancelled midway through filming of the sixth season, and only a total of eight episodes were produced after Kevin Sorbo initially declined to renew a three-year extension contract to continue his role as Hercules.
