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.
Eric mentioned that it is left with a sort of cliffhanger. Does that mean that the whole final episode is pointless without the following, non-existent storyline or does that mean that the bulk of the case/episode is wrapped up but there is a tag on the end that introduces some new type of cliffhanger like a possible life threatening injury or a surprise character showing up??
I just watched the 9th episode so at this point I'd rather not watch the 10th if whatever court case is introduced is just left hanging. I have no problem with a minor cliffhanger as I can just create my own ending.
Thanks for any info - without giving away a whole spoiler. :)
They usually call it a series finale only when it is the definite end of a series... usually one that is planned.
If you notice they don’t even promo this show any more and haven’t for awhile.
I’m really hoping this is not the end. Someone needs to start a petition.
I will be sad tomorrow when the supposed last episode airs. This show is done so well and so right. I was happy thst they didn’t win the cast against the church last week. If they always win it wouldn’t be realistic. But it is.
Please NBC. Keep this going.
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.
