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?

    I am sorry to see this great show cancelled. I concur with everyone else – that when a good show comes on, it gets cancelled. I can’t believe it. Who makes these terrible decisons???

    Seems as though when there is a show worth watching for good entertainment value that is when a network wants to put the ax to it. There is people that want more out of TV than crappy reality shows. It had good story lines each week and kept you looking forward to the next week. Happens every time I get involved in watching a series usually.

    How is that when a great show is produced that it only lasts two seasons. This was an amazing Canadian production that was such an incredible show- who decides that this is not valuable enough to carry on- shame on you! There is so little to choose these days. I am so disappointed.

    Hope that they do make the movie to wrap things up. I was really wrapped up in this show. It seems that once again we have the good shows cancelled and the ones that are so bad renewed year after year.

    How sad. I so looked forward to another season and am so disappointed to see this end. How is it that some of these stupid reality shows go on and on and something lake Bomb Girls that has substance gets cancelled?

    I am very disappointed that Bomb Girls has been cancelled. Another bad network decision. This was one of the very few programs that we (my husband and I) really enjoyed. There will be less time spent in front of the TV.

    A quality show gone the way of so many before it. Its a shame such an interesting spotlight these ladies had will likely fade into obscurity. Perhaps the viewership could rise if it had a vehicle like amc or even ownership by a hulu channel or Netflix. Its really a cool show. Its not perfect. It sort of reminiscent of a stage production, the way some of the characters hold themselves. It could use a couple grittier characters. It has a lot of potential though. I still look forward to the episodes I’ve yet to see and the movie to follow.

    One of the best shows on television! The setting,the time period, and of course the characters are fascinating. There are so few shows about women out there.
    I am sorry to hear that it is being passed over for a third season when I feel the storylines have so much more to share with audiences.
    It rivals Downton Abbey in my opinion on all counts.
    The costuming is spot on vintage but did anyone catch some of those men’s ties? They were were all at once super short, super wide, loud, and shiny. I don’t see those coming back anytime soon :)

    My daughter got my wife and I to start watching and we watched the first season and loved. Love the stories, costumes are great. We were really sad to hear it’s been cancelled. We will watch the second season now. Hope it’s as good as the first. My grandmother was an office girl my mother in law was a Rosie the riveter. Watching these makes their stories come alive. Wish there were more, kids now need to see how people sacrificed.
    Hope they reconsider the cancellation. It’s one of the best shows I have seen in a long time.

    We looked forward to each showing of the Bomb Girls….and learned so much from the show about how the home front in Canada assisted with the war effort just like here in the states. High quality shows such as the Bomb Girls are in short supply. So sorry to see this one go. We hope we get to see the two hour movie here in the states!

  12. Mark says

    Really saddened to learn of the ending of the show. So a two how movie is going to be able to fast foward through three years of war? Don’t see how. I do wonder if the series would’ve continued had a different network in the states picked it up, such as AMC or USA, even Lifetime or History Channel might have gained it more of an audience. Really hope they reverse the decision and continue the story!
