The CW pulls Bump

US network quietly drops S2 of Aussie dramedy halfway through its run.

US youth-skewing network The CW last week quietly dropped Bump mid season from its schedule.

The Stan series was five episodes into its 10 part second season when the broadcaster replaced it with repeats of Whose Line Is It Anyway? in a 9:30 pm slot.

Five unaired episodes were set to be available on the CW app and CWTV.com.

Other Aussie titles have not fared so well on The CW with ABC’s surf drama Barons removed in June and the Australian-filmed Down To Earth with Zac Efron pulled in July

Bump stars Nathalie Morris, Carlos Sanson Jr., Claudia Karvan and Angus Sampson and is produced by Roadshow Rough Diamond. It has also screened on BBC (UK), HBO Max (Latin America) and CBC (Canada).

A third season aired in Australia on Stan last December. Filming on S4 began in July.

  1. Ouch. To be dumped during the off season when there’s a serious new content shortage. So Discovery have cancelled most of the CW shows that WB and CBS hadn’t already, failed with foreign shows and have no way to make new shows. What’s more the the lions are now trying to split of the old sick zebras and rip out their throats. Should be a fun 23/24 season.

  2. It’s the same with British content – they’ve tried a few things but almost all have ended up being pulled, yet they still try again. Imports just font work on the main US networks – strike or no strike.
