15 series canceled in one day: Magnum, Legacy and other titles that went down the drain

Latest News15 series canceled in one day: Magnum, Legacy and other titles that went down the drain

After two years of a pandemic in which major US open networks barely touched their sci-fi bets, Thursday’s carnage between these channels’ episodes garnered attention, with 15 cancellations announced in just a few hours. Many of the media groups that own these channels are involved in a deep reorganization to bring more relevance to their on-demand TV platforms. Added to this, fiction has been the hardest hit by the change in television consumption, which continues to shrink the audience for open broadcasting. In this scenario, CBS, NBC, and most of all, The CW have given their grids a thorough cleaning. The nearness of the time networks have to present advertisers with their bids for the new season has accelerated announcements of cancellations, renewals and new TV projects.

Additional Information

The bloodshed practiced by The CW, a CBS- and Warner-dependent channel targeting a younger audience that used to update virtually all of its fiction, is astounding. On Thursday, seven cancellations were announced. Among them is the new version of Charmed, which has already been released for four seasons. Dynasty, the adaptation of the 80s classic, is saying goodbye after five seasons. Roswell: New Mexico will release its fourth and final issue this summer, as will In the Dark. This summer will also see the release of the fourth and final season of Legacies, and with it, the TV universe that emerged from The Vampire Chronicles will end. For their part, Naomi and the 4400 – the new iteration of the 2004 sci-fi series – are saying goodbye after one season. These cancellations are in addition to those already announced for Batwoman and Legends of Tomorrow.

CBS has kept up with announcing the end of some productions of its offering. Magnum, the new version of the 80s series now starring Jay Hernandez, is saying goodbye after four seasons. Only one survived the medical drama Good Sam and the comedy How We Ride. Two other comedies directed by Chuck Lorre (responsible for Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory) will also not continue in the new direction: B Positive and The United States of Al were canceled after two seasons.

On the NBC side, there were three titles that went through the series’ streak. Keenan and Mr. Mayor (starring Ted Danson and Tina Fey and Robert Carlock as creators) were canceled after two seasons, with Endgame running for only one installment.

Thursday also left the announcement of some new fiction that will be released in the coming months on US free-to-air networks. CBS, for example, is planning three new dramas: fire story Fireland, crime drama East New York, and legal drama Help Me Todd. None of the four comedies that I had in the near future will definitely see the light of day.

The CW will also feature new fiction for next season: a Supernatural prequel called The Winchesters, a Walker prequel called Walker: Independence, and Gotham Knights, in which Bruce Wayne’s adopted son allies himself with the children of Batman’s enemies. when they are framed for murder. As for NBC, it has revamped series that have already been running such as Young Rock, American Auto and Grand Crew, in addition to other titles that have already been revamped such as La Brea, The Blacklist, New Amsterdam and the Chicago and Law and order.
