The complete bloodletting over at ABC continues in regards to some of their shows. We’ve already seen the official end for Designated Survivor and now, we can add a multitude of other shows to the mix.
Let’s start here with Deception, which was at one point the show we had the most hope in. We knew that ABC was in the market for a crime procedural and on the surface, this show seemed to fit the bill and had a great executive producer on board in Chris Fedak. Unfortunately, it couldn’t continue the momentum that it first built following a strong premiere.
Meanwhile, the cancellation of Kevin (Probably) Saves the World is coming after the surprising renewal of For the People, which took over its time slot. We didn’t think that this series had a huge chance of coming back for more episodes, but there certainly was a chance that a miracle could’ve happen.
We were never anywhere near as optimistic about The Crossing. While this show did enter the season with a lot of potential, at the same time it really suffered because of a rough timeslot from the moment that it premiered.
To go along with there, Inhumans and Ten Days in the Valley are both cancelled, not that this should really come as all that much of a surprise to anyone. These two shows were unofficially axed a long time ago. Deception is probably the one we’re the most surprised about mostly because of what ABC’s needs are — based on all of these cancellations, it’s pretty clear that this is a network that will have an interest in airing a lot of new shows. Don’t be altogether shocked if they end up getting in the market for a number of other series that don’t get picked up elsewhere.
