Multiple sources confirm that ABC has pulled the plug on Samantha Who? after two seasons.
The news comes as a bit of a surprise considering ABC and the show’s producers appeared to be close to compromising on a cost-cutting measure that would have shifted the comedy from its current single-camera format to the more traditional (and cheaper) multi-camera model.
On the bright side, at least there will be closure: Per an ABC insider, seven unaired episodes remain in the network’s arsenal and the last one “feels like a series finale.” Of course, there’s no telling when or where those eps will be shown.
You know what comes next: You head to the comments section to
bitch slap ABC eulogize the show.
