This Fall TV Season is proving to be a tough one; yet more news has arrived that two great [yet low in ratings] shows are likely to see their end sometime soon.
NBC will not be airing Parenthood in the month of December, and though not confirmed by the CW, sources are confirming that CW has decided not to pick up any more episodes of sophomore drama Life Unexpected.
While the official decision about a third season for Life Unexpected will be handed down until May, when the CW announces its new fall schedule, boss Liz Tigelaar took to her Facebook page with this message to fans about a back-nine order: “It’s real, it’s true, no back nine. But stranger things have happened when people are invested so keep watching. We have a GREAT season to show you and who knows!!!”
So just what show will fill it’s place? The CW’s new pilot Secret Circle, based on the book series authored by The Vampire Diaries scribe L.J. Smith, is expected to help do the job. Writers/producers Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain, who were behind both The Vampire Diaries and Angel, are helming the new series.
As for Parenthood, starting Dec. 7, NBC will push The Biggest Loser back an hour and air special holiday-themed episodes of Minute to Win It at 8:00. On on happier note, an NBC source tells us that Parenthood will be back midseason—exact airdate to be determined—and “not to worry.”
Life Unexpected and Parenthood fans – how do you feel about news? Do you think the series will be canceled?
