PAN AM Stopping Production After 14 Episodes But Might Not Be Canceled

     November 29, 2011

So far the fate of Pan Am has been up in the air, but it sounds like a solid decision might have already been made. AOL TV reports series actress Karine Vanasse updated her Twitter to say, “Well, we received THE call, Pan Am is only coming back for one more episode after Christmas. But up to the end, we’ll give it our all!” That seems to solidify that the series won’t be back for another season, especially since the show wasn’t part of ABC’s midseason schedule, however, ABC has reached out to say, “Nothing has changed. We are not canceling Pan Am. We are still in production and will continue to be in production finishing the original 13 episodes plus one more additional one. We have one more original episode this coming week, Dec. 4 and then will return in January with new episodes, airing all of them. Pan Am is still in contention for next season. We won’t know about that until our upfront announcement in May.” However, unless the ratings pick-up, the lack of an order for a full season just doesn’t bode well for the period drama which I’ve grown mostly fond of thus far. We’ll see what happens next year, but I’m betting we’ll have to get our fill of Kelli Garner and Christina Ricci from somewhere else.
