...cancelled TV shows, that is. ABC cancelled one of my favorite shows ever, Nashville. The reason for the cancellation, according to ABC president: "At the end of the day, we didn't feel that even though Castle andNashville were wonderful shows and good performers for a long time, the future for us didn't lie in those shows." Um....I don't get it. Nashville had consistent and loyal viewers from the beginning (self included) and I am incredibly sad to see it go, especially after the big cliffhanger it left us with.
There is hope, though. Lionsgate tweeted this after the series finale: #Nashies What a cliffhanger! But we won’t leave you hanging. There's more story to be told. #BringBackNashville
Sounds like confirmation that they're bringing it back, right?? Fingers and toes crossed.
And now for some of my others favorite shows that have been cancelled, and are gone but not forgotten:
Pushing Daisies. This was a quirky, little show about a pie maker who could bring back the dead, by touching them. Super weird, but I loved it. Alas, it was cancelled after a few seasons.
Smash. A musical dramedy. Incredible music, and I loved all of the storylines. I really miss this one! I have listened to the album over and over and over. And funnily enough, one of the actors on Smash, Will Chase (he played the character who played Joe DiMaggio in the Marilyn musical) was on Nashville as Luke Wheeler. He has a great voice!
Ugly Betty. This show had a pretty good, little run, but still I wanted more. It was a fun show, with a great heart.
Those are some of my favorite cancelled shows. What are some of YOURS???
