No back order for the new legal drama.
October 18, 2019
It looks like it's case closed for Bluff City Law. Word is out that NBC is wrapping production on the new drama after its initial 10-episode run, opting not to proceed with a back order for any additional episodes.
The series has had a tough go since its premiere in late September. Airing Monday nights at 10:00pm, it has struggled to find a sizeable audience, trailing its time slot competition for the past two weeks. Critical reception has overall been mixed at best.
Back in August the network had ordered six additional scripts for the show ahead of its premiere, but its early struggles have led NBC execs to rethink their long-term plans for the series. While no final decisions have been publicly, it appears that the series has been cancelled.
Bluff City Law follows Sydney Strait, a brilliant Memphis lawyer who left her father's famous firm due to their tumultuous relationship. But after years of barely speaking to each other, Sydney is thrust back into the family fold after her mother suddenly dies. When her father then asks Sydney to rejoin his firm, she puts aside her lingering resentment and distrust so that she can work at the firm she knows can affect real change.
The show's final episode is scheduled to air on November 25.
It is such a good show. Good acting, great stories and unique.
It is a travesty that something so great had to go. And a decision was made after just 3 episodes. I expect this from ABC but not NBC.
Please reconsider. Just look at the comments here.
Please reconsider and keep this going.
That is how you get 'Ghosted.' It started out as x-files clone, then became a sequel to 'The Office' complete with Darryl. All the while it was never going to make it no matter how much they spent on it. The networks need to do smaller (~10 eps) first seasons and make sure they are complete (cliffhangers get a show booted). Then if the show is crap they can cancel it with a sense of closure. If it does good they can keep it going.
To everyone who "waits" ratings are not based on 1 year+ it is 1 week. Don't expect Networks to take a chance unless viewers are willing to take a chance.
