I agree, all cop shows would be silly.   It's all the "reality" cop shows that are being cancelled.
Personally, all "reality" shows should be scrapped.

DRM "manages access" in the same way that Prison "manages freedom".

‘Ozark’ Renewed For Supersized Fourth & Final Season By Netflix

The saga of the Byrde family will soon be coming to an end after Netflix renewed Ozark for an expanded fourth and final season.

The drama, which stars Jason Bateman, Laura Linney and Julia Garner, has been renewed for 14 final episodes with the season split into two seven-episode parts.
Chris Mundy will return as showrunner, writer and executive producer and will reunite with Bateman as the creative force behind both parts of the new season.

Produced by MRC Television, it is exec produced by Bateman, Mundy, Mark Williams, John Shiban, Patrick Markey and Bill Dubuque. Linney will also be a Co-Executive Producer for Season 4.

The show has been a slow-burning hit for Netflix, which revealed during its first-quarter financial results that the third season was set to be viewed by just under 30M in the first four weeks after its March 27 premiere.
The streaming platform did not reveal when it plans to air the final run of Ozark but it will likely not be until 2021 at the earliest, depending on how long the COVID-19 production shutdown lasts.

Of the renewal, Bateman said, “A super-sized season means super-sized problems for the Byrdes. I’m excited to end with a bang(s).”

‘Dead To Me’ Renewed For Third & Final Season; Creator Liz Feldman Inks Overall Deal With Netflix

Netflix has renewed its popular dark comedy Dead To Me for a third season. Series creator Liz Feldman will return as executive producer/showrunner under a big overall deal she has signed with the streamer.

Under the multi-year pact, Feldman will also develop new original series and other projects for Netflix. Dead To Me stems from an overall deal Feldman previously had at CBS Television Studios, which produces the praised comedy and I hear bid to keep Feldman in the fold.

Dead to Me, starring Christina Applegate, Linda Cardellini and James Marsden, has been a breakout commercial and critical hit. Its first season was watched by 30M households in its first month, ranked fourth on Netflix’s Top 10 Most Popular Series of 2019 in the U.S. and scored Applegate an Emmy nomination.

“From start to finish, Dead To Me is exactly the show I wanted to make. And it’s been an incredible gift,” Feldman said. “Telling a story sprung from grief and loss has stretched me as an artist and healed me as a human. I’ll be forever indebted to my partners in crime, my friends for life, Christina and Linda, and our brilliantly talented writers, cast and crew. I am beyond grateful to Netflix for supporting Dead To Me from day one, and I’m thrilled to continue our collaboration.”

Said Applegate about the decision to end the series, which revolves around her character Jen and Cardellimi’s Judy, “We felt this was the best way to tie up the story of these women.”

Feldman executive produces Dead To Me with Jessica Elbaum and Will Ferrell for Gloria Sanchez Prods., Christie Smith, Applegate and Adam McKay. Cardellini serves as co-executive producer.

Kidding: Cancelled by Showtime, No Season Three for Jim Carrey TV Series

Showtime isn’t kidding around any longer. The cable channel cancelled the low-rated Kidding TV show so it won’t be back for a third season.
The second season of Kidding averaged a 0.02 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 89,000 viewers. Compared to season one, that’s down by 74% in the demo and down by 63% in viewership. The second season is one of the cable channel’s lowest-rated scripted series.

In a statement, Showtime notes, “After two seasons, Kidding has concluded its run on Showtime. We are very proud to have aired this imaginative, critically acclaimed and rewarding series, and we would like to thank Jim Carrey, Dave Holstein, Michael Aguilar, Michel Gondry and the entire cast and crew for their brilliant and tireless work.”

After Life: Netflix Series to End with Season Three

After Life has a little more life in it. As previously reported, the Netflix series will return for a third season. Ricky Gervais recently revealed that he has already written the episodes for season three, but there won’t be a fourth season.

Per The Mirror, he said the following about the end of the Netflix series:

    “I’ve already made my mind up there won’t be a four. And you do put those things out there to make you remember as it’s tempting but… there’s an old saying that ‘to lead the orchestra, you’ve got to turn your back on the audience’. That’s true. The audience think they want another one, but they’re not sure. So you’ve got to be careful.”

‘Siren’ Canceled By Freeform After 3 Seasons

Freeform’s Siren has come to an end as the network has opted not to pick up a fourth season of the mermaid drama. The news comes more than two months after the May 28 Season 3 finale.

The cancellation marks a reversal of fortune for Siren, which made a splashy debut in 2018. It was a breakout hit in Season 1 and its second season ranked as Freeform’s most-watched series of the year.

Despite a double-digit ratings drop in Season 3, Siren remained the most watched Freeform original series in linear ratings.
Alex Roe, Fola Evans-Akingbola, Ian Verdun and Rena Owen also starred. The series was executive produced by Emily Whitesell and Wald.


‘High Fidelity’ Canceled By Hulu After One Season

High Fidelity, starring and executive produced by Zoë Kravitz, will not be getting a second season on Hulu. I hear the cast and production team of the series, a reimagining of Nick Hornby’s 1995 novel and the 2000 John Cusack movie, were notified of the cancellation today.

The decision was not easy and came after lengthy deliberations, I hear. The show, which has been well received by critics and is headlined by a big star with a massive following in Kravitz, had internal support at Hulu, whose brass took extra time to mull a potential renewal, with sibling ABC Signature extending the options on the cast by a month to accommodate that.

In the end, the streamer opted not to proceed with a second season. Finding another home for the show is considered a long shot, I hear.

High Fidelity was one of two series based on movies to launch on Hulu this year after being originally developed at Disney+. The other, Love, Victor, looks promising for a renewal.

‘The Society’ & ‘I Am Not Okay With This’ Canceled By Netflix Due To COVID-Related Circumstances

Netflix has reversed its Season 2 renewal decision for The Society. The YA drama, whose production was impacted by COVID-19, has been canceled and won’t film a second season. Additionally, Netflix has opted not to proceed with a second season of another coming-of-age series, I Am Not Okay With This.

While there had been no official renewal, I hear comedy-drama I Am Not Okay With This had been quietly picked up for a second season, scripts were written, and it was fully on track to go into production.

The Society was renewed last summer for a second season, which had been slated to premiere in late 2020. I hear the delayed season had been eyeing potential start of filming next month.

According to sources, uncertainty around production dates and balancing the availabilities of a large cast like The Society, coupled with unexpected budget increases due to COVID led to the decisions on The Society and I Am Not Okay With This, which had been both well received by critics and fans and had strong support at Netflix.

“We’ve made the difficult decision not to move forward with second seasons of The Society and I Am Not Okay With This,” Netflix said in a statement to Deadline. “We’re disappointed to have to make these decisions due to circumstances created by COVID, and we are grateful to these creators, including: Jonathan Entwistle, Christy Hall, Shawn Levy, Dan Levine, Dan Cohen and Josh Barry at 21 Laps Entertainment for I Am Not Okay With This; Chris Keyser, Marc Webb and Pavlina Hatoupis for The Society; and all the writers, casts and crews who worked tirelessly to make these shows for our members around the world.”

This is something we will likely see more of as the months-long Hollywood shutdown due to the pandemic will create a logjam when trying to ease all series impacted by the shutdown back into production while mitigating higher production costs due to strict COVID-19 safety protocols and losses from the pandemic. Streamers and tech companies in general have been better positioned than traditional media companies in navigating the financial impact from the pandemic.


Penny Dreadful: City of Angels: Cancelled; No Season Two for Showtime TV Series

The fight won’t continue. Showtime has cancelled its Penny Dreadful: City of Angels TV show so, there won’t be a second season.
Airing on Sunday nights, the first season of Penny Dreadful: City of Angels averaged a 0.03 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 348,000 viewers. Despite the low ratings, compared to other Showtime scripted series, the show was a middle-of-the-road performer.

“Showtime has decided not to move forward with another season of Penny Dreadful: City of Angels. We would like to thank executive producers John Logan, Michael Aguilar, and the entire cast and crew for their outstanding work on this project,” the premium channel said in a statement.

The 10th and final episode aired on June 28th.

‘Tosh.0’ To End With 12th Season As Comedy Central Continues Shift To Animation; ViacomCBS & Daniel Tosh Will Shop Series

Tosh.0 has become the latest Comedy Central live-action series to come to an end as the ViacomCBS network makes a hard pivot to adult animation.

The show created and hosted by comedian Daniel Tosh will end after its upcoming 12th season. ViacomCBS and Tosh plan to shop the series to other networks and digital platforms.

This comes 24 hours after it emerged that Drunk History will not be moving forward with its seventh season.

Tosh.0, which looks at the ever-changing social media landscape, is Comedy Central’s longest-running weekly live-action show. Including the 12th season, which begins September 15, it will reach 300 episodes, having run for 11 years. The final season will feature 10 episodes with its finale on November 24.


Younger: Season Seven to End the TV Land Series

It seems that the end is near for the Younger TV show. According to one of the show’s actors, there won’t be an eighth season of the TV Land series.
The sixth season of Younger averaged a 0.13 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 580,000 viewers. Compared to season five, that’s down by 39% and 14%, respectively. Season six finished airing in September 2019.

Younger was renewed for a seventh season in July 2019 and, according to Duff, that will be the end of the show. In a recent interview, Duff shared,

It has been tough because I’m supposed to be in New York right now filming last season, and we have been on hold for quite a few months. Things are starting to shoot in New York and open back up again. I think production is feeling confident that in the next month or two we can get back to our schedule and shoot our last season.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, Huff says that the cast hasn’t been able to read scripts for the final episodes. The actress is confident that series creator Darren Starr will deliver a satisfying ending. She said,

He writes amazing (scripts) for women and we feel so empowered to be on the show and to be playing the women that we are playing. They’re all very different, but with very strong and flawed qualities — so I’m sure this last season will not disappoint.

While Younger may be coming to an end, a spin-off that revolves around Duff’s character is in the works.


‘Patriot Act With Hasan Minhaj’ Canceled After Six Seasons On Netflix

Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj has come to an end on Netflix.

My 2 babies were born and grew up with the show. TY to @Netflix and everyone who watched. Now it’s time to return these screens to Best Buy.

The cancellation was confirmed by Netflix.

In all, Netflix released 39 episodes of the series across six cycles from October 2018-June 2020. The initial order of 32 episodes, which ran through December 2019, was extended by seven additional episodes in 2020. The final episode aired on June 26. These episodes will continue to be available on Netflix.

Andrea Savage’s ‘I’m Sorry’ Won’t Proceed With Season 3 Due To COVID; Canceled By TruTV After 2 Seasons

TruTV has opted not to go ahead with the previously greenlighted season of scripted comedy I’m Sorry, created by and starring Andrea Savage. The well-received series had been renewed for a 10-episode third season to air in 2020.

“Due to circumstances created by COVID, we unfortunately cannot move forward with production on the third season of I’m Sorry,” the network said in a statement to Deadline. “We admire Andrea Savage’s irreverent voice and fresh take on parenthood and are so proud of the show she and her cast and crew created. She was a great partner for many years and we truly wish everyone well.”

I hear I’m Sorry was two weeks into filming Season 3 when all Hollywood production was shut down in mid-March. All 10 scripts for the new season have been written, and Savage and the show’s other producers were contemplating scenarios for resuming production when the call came from the network that I’m Sorry has been canceled. I hear it caught everyone off-guard.

“We are heartbroken. This has been my second baby for almost 5 years,” said Savage, a mother of one. “While I wish people would be able to see the wonderful 10 episodes we wrote this season, I am so proud of the show we created. It is exactly the show I wanted to make and am devastated it’s not continuing. I also want to thank all of our fans for supporting us so incredibly over these past few years. We couldn’t have done it without you!”

The cancellation of I’m Sorry follows a similar decision by Netflix not to proceed with previously greenlighted and fully written seasons of two YA series, The Society and I Am Not OK With This “due to circumstances created by COVID.” Those reversals also reportedly blindsided the creators like the I’m Sorry one did.

As we wrote at the time, this is something we will likely see more of as the months-long Hollywood shutdown due to the pandemic will create a logjam when trying to ease all series impacted by the shutdown back into production while navigating actors’ schedules and mitigating higher production costs due to strict COVID-19 safety protocols as well as significant financial hits from the pandemic.

The decision on I’m Sorry is likely a combination of the impact from COVID and the major changes and belt-tightening at TruTV parent WarnerMedia, which has been going through major restructuring and cost-cutting.

I’m Sorry, from Gloria Sanchez, A24 and Lonely Island, was part of TruTV’s rebrand as a comedy network with a distinct point of view. The WarnerMedia ad-supported cable networks have all been pairing down their scripted series portfolios over the past year or so amid declining lieanr TV ratings. TruTV still has At Home With Amy Sedaris and just renewed breakout Tacoma FD for a third season.

I’m Sorry, which grew its audience in Season 2 vs. Season 1 per TruTV, has been lauded for its nuanced TV mom portrayal. It follows Andrea (played by Savage), a confident comedy writer, wife and mom who comically exposes her inner immaturity and neuroses through unexpected life situations. She is joined by her husband Mike (Tom Everett Scott), their inquisitive daughter Amelia (Olive Petrucci) and her divorced parents (Kathy Baker and Martin Mull), as well as a close circle of friends.

I’m Sorry is executive produced by Savage, Joey Slamon, A24’s Ravi Nandan, Gloria Sanchez’s Jessica Elbaum, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, and Lonely Island’s Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer.

A couple more bites the dust...

‘NOS4A2’ Canceled After Two Seasons By AMC

There will be no third season for AMC’s supernatural horror series NOSA42, Deadline has confirmed. Showrunner and executive producer Jami O’Brien shared the news Monday on Twitter, and the network confirmed the cancellation.

“Well friends, I heard from AMC last week,” O’Brien wrote. “We won’t be making a 3rd season of #NOS4A2. It’s a bummer, but I’m grateful we were at least able to finish adapting the storyline from Joe Hill’s terrific novel… CONGRATULATIONS to every single member of our phenomenal team on two seasons of weird and wonderful TV. I will miss seeing everyone back in Little Rhody this year, but I’m awfully proud of all we’ve done together.” See her four-tweet post below.

“Christmasland may live forever, but NOS4A2 will come to an end with the conclusion of season two,” AMC said in a statement Monday. “We are so thankful to Jami O’Brien, Joe Hill and the entire cast and crew for two seasons of inspired, terrifying and thoroughly captivating and age-defying television. And thanks to the fans for climbing into the Wraith and coming along for the ride.”

NOSA42 performed well in ratings in its first season but saw declines in Season 2. The second season averaged about 800,000 total viewers per episode and 350,000 adults 25-54 in Nielsen Live+3. That’s about half as many as watched the first season, even with all Season 2 episodes being simulcast on AMC and BBC America.


Netflix’s ‘Ashley Garcia: Genius in Love’ & ‘The Big Show Show’ To End Runs With Christmas Specials

EXCLUSIVE: Netflix has opted not to order second seasons of multi-camera family sitcoms Ashley Garcia: Genius in Love and The Big Show Show.

Fans will get one more original episode of each shows as the streamer had commissioned special Christmas episodes of both comedies to be released this December.

These are not series finales. The special stand-alone Christmas episodes were filmed before the pandemic and do not continue the storylines from the previous seasons.

The produced episodes of Ashley Garcia and The Big Show Show will continue to be available on Netflix. Multi-camera comedy is probably the genre most dependable on cast chemistry. That is something that can be tested in a pilot, something that does not fit into Netflix’s model, which is built on straight-to-series orders.
