The legal dramedy will not get a fifth season.
November 11, 2014
It is being reported that TNT has cancelled Franklin & Bash after four seasons. Its most recent season, which ended last month, saw a significant ratings drop of over 50% from previous seasons. That viewership dip, combined with the network's recent desire to transition to edgier programming, likely factored into today's cancellation.

TNT makes the same mistake again and again. They take too long to produce a new season for a show; then, they break mid-season as well. You can't expect to maintain ratings even among loyal fans when you can't even consistently air these shows. Same problems with Rizzoli and Isles and Leverage when it was on.

Very disappointed to hear this. It was a really good show. The biggest problem was the 9 month break in between seasons. You're going to see the same drop with The Last Ship and it'll be cancelled next. I'm not going to say I'm going to cut a network off completely but given there's not much I watch on TNT or TBS anyway this is just another reason not to watch it.

NOOOOO! Such a hilarious show! Granted, season 4 was weak compared to the 1st 3 but not bad enough to cancel the show. Very annoyed with TNT.

I'm not going to disavow a network or whine about some mythical "mucky-muck" just doing their job and looking at the numbers... but I *will* miss this show. The latest season wasn't nearly as good as the first few. I would have liked to see at least one more though. I think they could have recovered.

Ok, this is it! I am so done with TNT, first Dallas, Perception and now Franklin and Bash! What shows are they keeping?? The only show I will watch on this channel is Rizzoli and Isles, but other than that I am so done. QUIT CANCELING ALL THE GOOD SHOWS TNT! What are you doing??

Way to go TNT... You keep shows everyone that you do not give a flip about your audience. Do me a favor keep cancelling good shows and keep all the fake reality shows, and maybe soon instead of you firing a show it will be TNT OUT OF BUSINESS...The reasons ratings drop is you show us 3-5 shows then they are gone for 6 months then 5-6 more shows then back in 6 months at a different tie and different day... Keep up the incredible bad work, and soon all of you at TNT will be the ones looking for work. People are getting so tired how you keep cancelling good shows and keeping the bad ones...

I loved this show. Blame this on the writers. Yes the 4th season did fall off but it was hard to follow and lacked the SPARK of insanity of previous seasons. Fire the witers, try a new younger bunch and give us a 5th season! Show always had a shot at greatness but the writters in the 4th season made it circle the drain.

Guess I'll be watching more Netflix since all my shows keep getting cancelled. Shame, Franklin and Bash seemed like a great show with decent ratings. Guess that doesn't matter anymore.

I always had plans to watch this series since I love Breckin Meyer and I love legal series. But I don't think I'll waste my time knowing that it's now cancelled. :( Sad that no show is safe these days!!!

It sad that loss of the show that tnt got ridd of another show. The *****Seasons*****way to short and to long before they start again. That is why you lose views and alos they kept moving the show around. The shifting of show was a poor decision.
Also they want to network's recent desire to transition to edgier programming, But they are Got to put the Libraian on in December. Really.....................
