Bomb Girls: Cancelled, No Season Three But…

Bomb Girls canceledShaw Media in Canada has cancelled Bomb Girls after two seasons. The TV series airs on Global Television in Canada and on ReelzChannel here in the US.

Bomb Girls revolves around a group of Canadian women who work in a munitions factory as they build bombs for the Allies during World War II. The cast includes Meg Tilly, Jodi Balfour, Charlotte Hegele, Ali Liebert, Antonio Cupo, Sebastian Pigott, Peter Outerbridge, Anastasia Phillips, Jim Codrington, and Lisa Norton. Rosie O’Donnell guest-starred during the second season.

Though there won’t be a third season, Global has ordered a two-hour movie that will wrap up the series. A release notes that it “will conclude the rich storylines and the amazing journeys of these beloved characters which have strongly resonated with the show’s loyal fans.”

The TV movie will air in Winter 2014 in Canada. It seems likely that Reelz will purchase domestic rights to air the conclusion around that same time.

What do you think? Are you sorry that Bomb Girls has been cancelled? Are you looking forward to the movie?

Bomb Girls has been a wonderful program. The writing and acting has been excellent. I am extremely disappointed that such a high quality program has not been renewed for a third season.
I sincerely hope the two hour movie will be pubicized and released in the U.S..

It is quite sad when enjoyable Canadian programs are canceled. The cast and settings are marvelous. The fact that the story line delves ever so slightly into history was quite refreshing, rather than all the murder, death and killings we are subjected to every time we change a station.

I agree with the comments about this cancellation. This is a rude and unrespectable attitude from the network towards bomb girls fans. It’s a great show and should not be cancelled. If its due to low ratings in the US then the network should be twice a shamed in this cancellation. We should not be prevented from seing a great show based on american preferences. I remind you its a canadian show produced in canada (free and independant). A bit more respect for canadian citizens and our history.

How is it that tasteless, humorless, so-called comedies can continue to infinity and beyond, but a program like “Bomb Girls”, something with real substance, can be arbitrarily cancelled? I wish it could have been otherwise. It will be missed.

I don’t get why they re canceling the series! It’s a great series! It’s historical and focuses on women, how hard they had it hiw string they proved themselves to be. I’d understand if the series wasn’t popular enough to continue but there was no mention of it. And make 2 hour movie to sum up everything? It’s got ta be a whole lot longer than 2 hours to cover up everyone s lives.

It’s History Repeating It’s Self
Anything that starts to look good to the viewer, they cancel for what they perceive as low ratings!
Bomb Girls took us through every aspect of life for these women before and during the first part of the World War II in the 1st season. The 2nd season filled in the reality of life of working as a “Bomb Bay Betty” for this war hooking viewers to the show, just to see the next episode to fill in the blanks from the last.

Then because of some idiot behind a desk who’s bored cancels the show with a cliff hanger that would have started season 3. Somehow they wonder why people seem to be hostile with their next attempt.
It’s sad; this was an addictive show on the same caliber as “Downton Abby.” But gee what does a viewer know? Somehow they think there the professional!

I think it is a shame that this show has been cancelled. I also think that this series should be part of school curriculum to at the very least impart an inkling of what it was like in the 1940’s and, perhaps, spark the imagination of a student to become a history teacher or just a buff…who knows – stranger things have happened

Why is it that no major US networks pick up this type of show? Reelz is a digital cable
channel independently owned – good spot to watch Bomb Girls or there is also BBC America..you do realize that many US shows aired in Britain and have been adjust to US audiences…

I am so disappointed Bomb Girls has been cancelled. Great show and I’m sure I’m not the only American that has been watching it.

So sad that Bomb Girls is being cancalled. It’s one of the things I look forward to on TV. There’s so much violence and junk ! I agree with the comment that it will take too long for the movie to come out. Maybe they will re-show the series in the meantime. I’d probably watch some of it again!

If the network chooses to cancel Bomb Girls, then the two hr movie finale should be right away! What the hell are you guys thinking? Now we wait a year and a half for that to come out? By winter of 2014? Really? Will be long forgotten by then! Too bad, it was a good show for us Canadian women to watch
