The medical drama will still continue for Canadian audiences.
September 5, 2012
NBC has taken Saving Hope off its schedule effective immediately. The low-rated medical drama still has two episodes remaining in its first season, which will now only be shown online for US audiences at NBC.com.
The Canadian-based series will still continue for viewers in its native land, as the show has already been picked up for a second season by CTV.

So we seem to be split even as to those who liked the show and those who trashed it. I am 70 and a tv adict retired from america to the Philippines. Watched the show and must say enjoyed it. I was not to upset at he cancelation except for the timing. Two shows left that could bring closier to doc who was in a comma. So not showing the end made me mad.Also dsince I was not in the U>S>A I could not get the final shows off the internet, so because of the idiots at the network who canceled the show I say to you ,---hope you get canceled with no notice and sent packing looking for a new job.

Thank what ever deity you choose to worship this thing got cancelled. I'm kinda hoping it pulls a Combat Hospital, and loses its Canadian station as well.
I mean, really, how long could this show have gone on for? The guy is in limbo? Eventually he's either going to die or come back to life. Then its game over. Plus, WTF is with the lens flare? I'm Canadian, and there's no reason for that. Seriously, you can say that's just Canadian production or what have you, but really? You don't see that in Fringe, Once Upon A Time, Rookie Blue, or any other Canadian produced show. Like, that's piss poor, even North Korean state run TV is better then that!

Presumably Canadian audiences have a higher tolerance for incompetent lighting and cinematography and put up with rampant lens flare better than civilized people.

I loved Saving Hope...Really good actors, mesh well and great writers... in a time where compassion is needed everywhere, especially when America is so misguided... it shows some great examples of all sorts of people working together to help others. Shame on you for cancelling...perhaps you could change the time slot, instead.

Great two showes left and they cancel. The doctor that has been in a comma is just now waking up. To cancel it without bringing clouser just is not right. I am fooming at the mouth wanting to say ev ery four letter word I know and threaten to take physical violance to the idiots who after the final two shows have been filmed choose not to show it.

I recently watched a show where one of the heads of NBC was harping on about how wonderful they were with all the investment in live shows like the Olympics coverage etc..
They really screwed that up by only showing recorded coverage and got a lot of complaints as a result, some of which they tried to forcibly silence as you may have read.
To me that is a great example of how bad the management of channels really are and these are the people that are killing shows.
I watch Saving Hope and although it isn't a great show it is certainly not the worst thing on.
Incidentally, the same show I mentioned earlier had one studio honcho state that he thought that in future all stations will have to work like HBO so at least there is some hope for the times ahead but sadly that hope won't go towards keeping the shows we like and love alive.
I think Saving Hope should keep going but I do think it will go the way of Combat Hospital (another Canadian show which showed promise only to be cancelled after one season and never to be seen again).

This was an excellent show - really wish it would continue.

I'm Canadian, so anytime I see a Canadian show come out I have high hope that it will do well abroad, but this show is terrible. Though it's cast has been very good in their other projects, no one seems comfortable in their roles and it shows with unrealistic sounding dialogue and poor chemistry.
I'm happy this has been cancelled in the US and hope it get's cancelled in Canada as well, because there's a lot of good scripts/premises' available to waste airtime on prime-time soap opera's that, in the end, make Canada's tv industry look like more of a joke than it already is.

Thank god for the Internet, I won't miss a single ep just because some deushe bag network executive decided quality wasn't important.

Thank God this one has been cancelled. I watched three episodes because I'm a huge fan of Michael Shanks, but the poorly-crafted, puerile and sappy dialogue, marginal acting skills of others involved, and annoying filming tricks/filters (yeah, make every light show trailing blue lines...) made this initially promising show feel like a rehashed version of every other medical drama produced in the past 15 years. I would rather go to the dentist than watch another full episode, though I would watch all episodes to avoid seeing one reality show. I know that opinions differ, but I would much rather networks brought back shows like Awake or Bent.
