A&E has canceled Longmire after three seasons, EW has confirmed.
The modern western starred Robert Taylor as the unflappable and recently widowed sheriff of Absaroka County, Wyoming. The third season capped off with 3.7 million viewers and 0.6 in the 18-49 demographic, down from its season 2 finale.
Discovery has canceled Sons of Guns in the wake of its star Will Hayden being charged with the rape of a child, EW has confirmed.
Hayden was first arrested earlier this month for the alleged rape of a 12-year-old girl. After being released on bail, he was arrested again on Tuesday and charged with aggravated rape.
TV Land is saying goodbye to Kirstie.
EW has confirmed that Kirstie Alley’s latest sitcom has been canceled. Kirstie followed a Tony Award-winning diva (Alley) whose life was turned upside down when the son she gave up for adoption 26 years prior showed up on her doorstep. The series aired for one season, which ended in February.
Nickelodeon has canceled Sam & Cat, with last Saturday’s episode serving as its series finale. The show lasted one season.
Sam & Cat, a spinoff starring iCarly‘s Jennette McCurdy and Victorious‘ Ariana Grande, followed two best friends who had an after-school babysitting business. Created by Dan Schneider, the man behind All That and Drake & Josh, the show seemed like a sure thing. But after a successful series premiere, a 40-episode order, a production hiatus in April, rumors of co-star feuds, and more, Nickelodeon has pulled the plug.
Grande addressed the cancellation on social media, saying: “I want to thank Nickelodeon for making a childhood dream of mine come true, for being a family to me, for being so accommodating and supportive of my multitasking with my music career, and for of course introducing me to many of my fans however many years ago. I want to thank Dan Schneider for allowing me to play such a special, beautiful character who I hid behind for so long.”
CNN host Piers Morgan issued one last plea for U.S. gun control as he wrapped up his show’s three-year run.
Morgan devoted the prime-time show’s final minutes Friday night to the issue that he said has been a “consistent and often very controversial” part of Piers Morgan Live.
The British-born host cited gun violence statistics and expressed dismay that mass shootings including those in Newtown, Conn., and Aurora, Colo., haven’t led to stricter laws.
Morgan blamed politicians that he said had been bullied into “cowardly” silence by a gun lobby led by the National Rifle Association.
The fairy tale’s over. Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is not coming back next season.
This is no surprise given its performance, but ABC confirmed the news Friday. The network actually told fans Thursday night that next week’s episode was the “series finale” instead of “season finale,” but interestingly the news is just really taking off now (when “only” 3.3 million watch a show, guess it takes a while for the news to spread).
The Once Upon a Time spin-off was conceived as a stand-alone one-season story, but the hope was a new tale in the same world could launch next season. All the episodes will have aired. The show struggled throughout its run at 8 p.m. on Thursday nights. The Sunday night flagship series Once Upon a Time, while not officially ordered for next season, is fully expected to continue.
UPDATE: And just because Wonderland has been canceled doesn’t mean Once Upon couldn’t spin-off again. So that’s our poll: Which Disney-owned land should Once Upon spin-off next? READ FULL STORY
Raising Hope is saying goodbye. Fox announced Monday that it will air two back-to-back new episodes to end the comedy’s four-season run on April 4.
The series finale will begin with “How I Met Your Mullet” which will guest star Lesley Nicol (Downton Abbey), followed by “The Father Daughter Dance” featuring Jeffrey Tambor. It will also include a musical performance by Kenny Loggins.
Raising Hope has averaged 2.7 million viewers this season and a 1.0 rating in 18-49.
“On behalf of myself, Greg Garcia and Raising Hope‘s amazing cast and crew, I would like to thank our audience for tuning in and supporting us over the last four seasons,” said executive producer Mike Mariano in a statement. “We planned our Season 4 finale with this possibility in mind, and hope our loyal fans enjoy the way we’ve chosen to say goodbye to the Chances and to Natesville. Thanks again, and we’ll see you in syndication.”
“Getting to know and love the Chance family on Raising Hope has been a sweet, hilarious ride,” added Fox chief Kevin Reilly in a statement. “Thanks to the incredibly talented cast – along with Greg, Mike and the entire crew – for making us laugh for four fantastic seasons.”
Raising Hope, which was created by Garcia, bowed in the fall of 2010 and stars Martha Plimpton, Cloris Leachman, Garret Dillahunt, Lucas Neff, Shannon Woodward and Gregg Binkley. New episodes begin airing this Friday at 9:30 p.m. on Fox.
VH1 has canceled Single Ladies after three seasons.
The hourlong drama/comedy executive, produced by Queen Latifah’s Flavor Unit Entertainment, was the music cable net’s first foray into scripted programming.
“We’ve been proud to deliver three seasons of the drama, romance, and style that engaged viewers in each episode of Single Ladies,” VH1 said in a statement. “Although we’ve decided not to move forward with another season, we hope to work again with the talented cast, creatives and producers as well as our partners at Flavor Unit Entertainment in the near future. We also thank the show’s fans for their support since the premiere in 2011.”
The series finale will air March 24 at 9 p.m. on VH1.
