Netflix slims down by dropping Insatiable after 2 seasons

Hey, did you hear the story about about a young woman who was bullied in high school because of her weight, then exacts her revenge years later by getting thin and joining the pageant circuit? How about the tale of the misguided TV execs who thought stuffing Debby Ryan into a fat suit was a good idea to begin with? Netflix pegged Insatiable as a “dark, twisted revenge comedy,” but critics...

Nobody's going to revive Lodge 49, confirms co-creator

Lodge 49, one of our favorite shows of both

this year and this decade , is officially finished. Yes, we reported on its AMC cancellation back in October, but, nearly two months later, Jim Gavin, who co-created the show with Peter Ocko, has taken to Twitter to share that the team’s efforts to find a new home for the offbeat comedy were ultimately fruitless. The story of a kind-hearted...

Read This: An illuminating visit to the social media graveyards of cancelled TV shows

Usually, when a TV series is cancelled, its social media accounts die right along with it. That’s not always the case, though, as is evidence by the official The King Of Queens Twitter account rearing its head last month to comment on Game Of Thrones.

Yes, 12 years after The King Of Queen’s last new episode, its Twitter account is still extremely active, spurred on by the show’s second life...

Moby takes the hint for once and cancels the rest of his book tour

For weeks we have been subjected to nuggets of Moby’s personal life via

unsolicited excerpts from his creepy-ass second memoir, Then It Falls Apart. One story involved Natalie Portman, who he claimed to have dated when she was 20 years old. Portman countered his claim with a few clarifications, most important among them that she was not 20 and that they were not romantically involved. In...

Amazon's The Tick canceled after two seasons of wacky, heartfelt adventure

Amazon's The Tick canceled after two seasons of wacky, heartfelt adventure

As our own John Hugar

recently declared , The Tick’s second season gave us “the show we were hoping The Tick could be all along.” Alas, it turns out the hilarious, heartfelt superhero parody will go out on that high note, as creator Ben Edlund has revealed that Amazon won’t be renewing the superhero series for a third outing. That said, Edlund isn’t content to let the show rest, making it...

Legion's third season will be its last

[Spoilers for Legion’s second season below.]

Legion’s second season left us feeling, in a word, betrayed. Not only was David’s heel turn executed in a way that the show doesn’t feel equipped to handle, but, as we noted in our

season two wrap-up , this latest batch of episodes discarded “so much of our understanding of, and connection to, what’s come before it out the window, that it feels more...

SyFy cancels horror anthology Channel Zero, depriving us of our nightmares

Channel Zero got off to

a shaky start , but SyFy’s creepypasta anthology series grew eerier and more resonant with each season. We lauded its latest story, The Dream Door , as being “the most effective balance of narrative and nightmare the series has pulled off yet.” It’s a bummer, then, to report that SyFy has chosen to pull the plug after four seasons.
