Strap yourself in and get real comfortable, everything old is new again. So if the networks are bringing back mediocre shows, we're bringing back mediocre Firefly jokes.
What's this thread and why should I care?
This thread is home to cancellation news, news about pilots/shows being developed, and general industry news.
Shows are bound to get cancelled, it's just how it works. In order for new, exciting shows to get made, existing ones have to be cancelled (even the ones you like!) - after all, linear networks only have so many spots on their schedule and Netflix/Apple/Amazon don't have infinite money (yet).
So it's nice to know if the show you're following is headed for cancellation, right? See what kinda level of investment you should be...investing... in it, so there's no crushing disappointment at the end of the season (... even though there are always those kinds of breakdowns). Well, this is the place to find out!
