|"GLOBAL CELEBRATES ROOKIE BLUE AS THE HIT SERIES COMES TO AN END AFTER SIX SEASONS|
TORONTO, October 16, 2015 Following an announcement made by the show's producers today, Global says goodbye to the beloved series Rookie Blue after six incredible seasons that saw Canada's favourite stars in blue grow from rocky rookies to fearless crime-fighters.
"The success of Rookie Blue is a testament not only to the extremely talented team of Ilana Frank, Tassie Cameron, David Wellington and studio Entertainment One (eOne), but the electrifying cast that has resonated with legions of fans that have followed the show since Season One," said Christine Shipton, Senior Vice President and Chief Creative Officer, Shaw Media. "After six seasons the series reached a natural conclusion and this season's finale was the perfect wrap up for both our rookies and for fans, especially with the marriage of our favourite couple, Sam and Andy."
While Rookie Blue has come to a close, Shaw Media is embarking on a new venture with the team behind Rookie Blue, partnering with Ilana Frank's ICF Films and eOne on a new project. More details on that venture to be announced at a later date.
The sixth season of Rookie Blue delivered emotional twists and turns, from the bombing that rocked 15 Division, to the pregnancy that rocked Sam and Andy, and the event that fans have been waiting for the "McSwarek" wedding! There are so many Rookie Blue moments that live in the hearts and minds of everyone that the series touched, so Global looks back at the drama as it grew from the new kid on the block to the country's #1 Canadian drama series of 2015* "
|Defiance canceled by Syfy, No season 4|
|2015-10-16 by thepoperope||Defiance||discuss|
The futuristic drama, from showrunner Kevin Murphy and starring Grant Bowler and Julie Benz, ended its third season Aug. 28 with 1.17 million total viewers after notching a string of series lows. The overall third-season average of 1.12 million total viewers is down a far cry from both its freshman and sophomore runs. At the time of its debut, Defiance was Syfy's second-largest series premiere in network history and was a proven performer on Monday nights among adults under 50.
Syfy and UCP parent NBCUniversal made a historic $100 million gamble on Defiance when it debuted in 2013 as the first TV series and video game to launch in tandem. The experiment created the most expensive series in the cable network's history at the time with an equally pricey massively multiplayer online video game. The series needed both viewers and gamers to invest time in both in order to justify the franchise's future.
"Defiance was a truly groundbreaking series, delivering an immersive, cross-platform experience that transcended the television screen in a way that viewers had never seen before," the network said in a statement. "We are incredibly proud of the work of the extraordinary cast, writers, artists and designers and especially showrunner Kevin Murphy who together brought the rich world of Defiance to life over its three-season arc."
|Dominion canceled by Syfy, No season 3|
|2015-10-14 by thepoperope||Dominion||discuss|
|"Syfy has cancelled fantasy drama "Dominion" after two seasons, Variety has learned. The supernatural series, inspired by the 2010 film "Legion," just wrapped its sophomore season early this month.|
Airing on Thursdays this summer, "Dominion" averaged a mere 0.25 rating in adults 18-49 and 880,000 total viewers in same-night viewing - down about 40% from its rookie season in 2014. Its second-season finale on Sept. 24 averaged 520,000 adults 18-49 (0.41 rating) and 1.19 million total viewers in Nielsen's "live plus-3" estimates.
"Led by Vaun Wilmott, the talented cast, producers, writers and crew of 'Dominion' have done a tremendous job bringing this ambitious, cinematic series to the screen over the past two seasons. We thank them, as well as our producing partners Universal Cable Productions, Bold Films and Film Afrika," Syfy said in a statement."
|Beauty and the Beast canceled, No season 5|
|2015-10-13 by thepoperope||Beauty and the Beast||discuss|
|The upcoming 4th season with 13 episodes will be the last, Deadline reported.|
"After beating the odds for a couple of years with surprising renewals, the CW's Beauty And The Beast will end its run with the upcoming 13-episode fourth season, which is wrapping production next month.
The supernatural procedural starring Kristin Kreuk and Jay Ryan scored a Season 4 pickup before its third season had premiered this past summer. Its final season may also get a summer run or could air in midseason, with both scenarios mulled by the CW brass.
Despite its soft linear ratings - Season 3 averaged a 0.2 in 18-49 Live+same day, down from Season 2 - Beauty And The Beast has done well online and has been a solid international seller for its studio, CW sibling CBS TV Studios. Plus, Beauty And The Beast, a remake of the 1987 series, had been a sentimental favorite of CW boss Mark Pedowitz as it was one of the very first concepts he pursued after taking the reins of the network in 2011."
