Fox is doing a big FU to his fans. Yesterday, they Cancelled The Last Man on Earth, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Mick. Today, they followed it up by doing the same to Lucifer and Exorcist. I could care less about the latter, but the former really hurts. It was a thrilling show with a great ensemble cast that played off each other well. To top it off, the show’s EP Joe Henderson wrote, “We created a season finale with a huge cliffhanger so that there was no way Fox could cancel us. Instead, we’re going to frustrate the hell out of you fans. I’m so sorry for that. #Lucifer.” I think of all of the shows this is the one that has the best chances of getting picked up by someone else. On a positive note, they revived Last Man Standing.
The CW was very nice to me today because they picked up iZombie for a fifth season. Which completes all of their renewals and cancellations. CBS, on the other hand, did not pick up or cancel anything today.
Over NBC they cancelled the heartfelt Rise that they did not do enough to promote. They also gave bad news to Great News. They were also not brave enough to renew Brave.
ABC like every year goes cancelling crazy because I do not think they know what they are doing. They picked up Speechless, Black-ish, American Housewife, Fresh Off the Boat, Splitting Up Together, For the People, Station 19 and How to Get Away Murder for another season. But they cancelled Designated Survivor, Deception, The Crossing, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, The Inhumans, Quantico and Alex, Inc. Basically, they cancelled all the dramas that are not produced by Shonda Rhymes. What type of world do we live in that the fake president gets impeached before the real one? Kiefer Sutherland is a much better president than the one we have now.
As my DVR has a huge party, I am crying tears for all the shows I lost today. Doing a Marlon Brando, “Stella” scream but replacing it with all the shows I lost. And there were a lot.
