NBC Renews ABOUT A BOY While Canceling REVOLUTION and GROWING UP FISHER; ABC Cancels TROPHY WIFE, SUBURGATORY, and SUPER FUN NIGHT

     May 9, 2014

The television gods giveth as they taketh away.  We recently reported that NBC had renewed Hannibal for a third season while cancelling Community just short of its anticipated sixth season.  Here’s a glance at some other changes in the television landscape:

  • NBC: About a Boy has been renewed for a second season, but Revolution and Growing Up Fisher have been cancelled, with Crisis and Believe on the bubble. [Update: The bubble has burst; they’ve been cancelled.]
  • ABC: Cancellations galore for Trophy Wife, Mixology, The Neighbors, Suburgatory, and Super Fun Night.

Hit the jump for more.

about-a-boy-renewedAs TV Line reports, NBC has put down the Revolution after two seasons.  The J.J. Abrams-executive-produced post-apocalyptic dramatic action series centered on groups of human settlers who survived an incident that left the world without electricity.  The show starred Billy Burke, Elizabeth Mitchell, David Lyons, Tracy Spiridakos, and Giancarlo Esposito just to name a few.   THR follows up that news with word that the Abrams-backed series Believe (which also sports Alfonso Cuaron as a co-creator) and Secret Service drama Crisis are on the bubble, and likely to be cancelled. [Update: TV Line reports that the plug has indeed been pulled on both shows.]  Freshman comedy series Growing Up Fisher, starring J.K. Simmons as a blind parent, has also come to the end of its run.

Meanwhile, over at ABC, it’s a regular slaughterhouse.  Freshman comedies Trophy Wife and Mixology got the ax, as did the series The Neighbors, Suburgatory, and Super Fun Night.  The network’s Last Man Standing and Nashville are still in contention to return, but no official word has come down one way or the other for either of them.
