It generally refers to a network cancelling a show, but in reality all shows have the plug pulled, whether by the execs or the creatives themselves.
The Australian list is much shorter than the International because networks rarely announce a show has been axed -rather it simply isn’t recommissioned. We already have a sizeable list of local shows still under the question mark for 2014 and the standard answer is “no decision yet.”
So whether by their own hand or not, here are the shows that called it quits in 2013 or announced final seasons.
NB: A handful will still have new episodes on Australian screens in 2014.
Low Winter Sun,
The Jeselnik Offensive,
King and Maxwell,
What Would Ryan Lochtie Do?,
The Killing (US),
The Glee Project,
Betty White’s Off Their Rockers,
Eastbound and Down,
CSI: New York,
Body of Proof,
Rules of Engagement,
The New Normal,
We also saw final seasons for numerous shows (Dexter, Breaking Bad, Merlin, Spartacus etc.) but the announcements were made in 2012.
