Cold Case: Kathryn Morris Not Ready for Show to Be Cancelled

Cold CaseThough the ratings for CBS’ Cold Case this season seem to be dooming the series to be cancelled, series star Kathryn Morris isn’t ready to say goodbye to the unique crime drama just yet.

Cold Case is unique in that each episode begins with an unsolved crime from the past. The scene then flashes forward to the present day and a group of homicide detectives try to piece together what really happened, using old evidence and new interviews. The series stars Morris, Danny Pino, John Finn, Jeremy Ratchford, Thom Barry, and Tracie Thoms.

In an interview with the LA Times, Morris says that her role as Lilly Rush is still interesting for her to play, even within the confines of a crime procedural. She said, “Lilly has evolved from being this little beat cop to this hungry cold case detective to a person who has expanded her sole capacity. Not just with the suspects, or the victims. She has really evolved into a person that is as real to me as a relative of mine. It’s a pretty cool thing to have for this many years.”

Though she’s been doing Cold Case for seven seasons, Morris feels the show is still going strong. “I’m in talks for a couple of great independent films concurrent with Cold Case, but the show is having its best season ever if you ask me. To me when actors get restless on series, I find them to be a little on the lazy side. I’m still looking to be a better actor, and I’m grateful every day.”

TV show supportIn terms of the show’s ratings struggle, Morris says the series’ viewers are unique and that the writers are doing their best to attract the target demographic. She said, “Well, we have fans that have followed us wherever we go. And our audience actually watches the show when it airs, they don’t DVR it. That’s a big difference. We are trying to do more cases aimed at 18- to 49-year-olds, though. Like we just did a skateboard episode, and a fight club episode.”

What do you think? Will Cold Case survive to see season eight or is it time for the show to be over?

GOD!!!!! What’s wrong with CBS??? Canceling my favorite shows…, first ‘Without a Trace’ and now “Cold Case”…. at least with Without a trace I can buy the DVDs, and watch the reruns on ION TV; but, with ‘Cold Case’ there are no DVDs to buy and the reruns are so late or so early on TNT that I have to record the shows, also, I do not know whether TNT has the right or no, to re-run all the shows until the end of the last season because they consistently show up to the fifth season… that I know….. I WISH CBS BRINGS MY FAVORITE SHOWS BACK….. :(

I love this show and would hate to see it end. It didnt get rating due to the spot it was in. It was on Sunday after that reality show amazing race and it would always run over about an half hour or so. So that would put the show behind and if u dvr it then you lose most of the story line. Pissed me off alot. The story lines and characters were awsome and I would hate to see it leave. So I hope CBS picks it back up and put in a new time spot. It would do very well on TNT too, I love TNT they have alot of good shows. I would love to see what happens in seasons 8.

I love Cold Case and I really hope people write TNT at tnt@turner.com and get TNT to pick up season *…the cast is brilliant I love the character story lines thats why I watch the show. Season 7 was the best season yet and if TNT picks it up they will be the best network ever…Im on a strike against CBS and plan to never watch any show they have again:\

Cold Case is a very good thought provoking show. There is so much realism that the show has to offer. It also offers the investigative mindset that a “book can not be judged by the cover”. I think the ratings fell due to the continuous time switch from 9:00 PM to 10:00 PM or later if a sports activity preceded the show. I wish there was more that could be done to resurrect the decision but if not … then another intelligent show will be replaced with something less informative and entertaining.

Cold Case is one of the best shows on television! It is certainly better than Survivor and its like. As far as I’m concerned, its going to difficult to replace.

Don’t cancel this show! I absolutely love it and I get very disappointed when it’s not on. I do not tape it. I want to see it when it airs. The series is really getting interesting. I look forward to seeing that show on Sundays at 10:00 p.m.

Cold case used to be a good show. From seasons 1 – 4, it was amazing, and each episode was filled with emotion, action, and excitement. You really felt sympathy for the characters. The way the producers and writers made each episode was very very well done. In past seasons (6 and 7) it seems like these producers and writers are barely even trying. It seems like they threw together each episode in five minutes. There is no emotion and no sympathy anymore. And there are no interesting storylines anymore. Most of the storylines focus on the characters instead of the actual stories. And that’s why it was cancelled, and it is official, that it will not be returning for an eighth season. I do feel bad because Cold Case used to be a show that I loved, but apparently it was time to go due to the previous bad episodes.
