The Networks Drop the Axe

Deadline Hollywood reported a slew of Network cancellations Thursday, May 12th. Among them were the following genre series:

ABC cut Galavant after two seasons

ABC also cut fan favorite Agent Carter after two seasons. This was no big surprise when Haley Atwell’s pilot Conviction looked like a sure thing for pick up.

The CW cut Containment which was no surprise since they have been advertising it as a limited event.

CBS also declined to pick up Supergirl, but the series was picked up by The CW for a second season.

In this innovative and imaginative series, U.S. Marshall Jack Carter stumbles into Eureka, a cozy hamlet in the woods that also happens to be a top-secret government research center. While retrieving his runaway teenage daughter Zoe, Carter has a freak car accident outside of an out-of-the-way settlement that appears to be the epitome of wholesome, small town America.

In fact, it’s a quirky community of some of the world’s most brilliant scientific minds, cloistered there to carry on groundbreaking and often dangerous research. When the consequences of an experiment gone awry puzzle even this advanced brain trust, Carter agrees to stay as sheriff.
