Last week, the CW network began airing the final four episodes of Valentine. Though few people watched the show during its original run (and even fewer are watching now), it’s nice that fans of the show can finally get to see the remaining installments. Now, Valentine’s sister show, Easy Money is coming back as well.
As you may recall, Easy Money revolves around a dysfunctional family that runs a small-time check-cashing and loan shark operation. The show features the talents of actors like Laurie Metcalf, Jeff Hephner, Jay R. Ferguson, Joe Peracchio, Katie Lowes, Nick Searcy, Kimberly Estrada, Marsha Thomason, Ravi Patel, Chris Browning, Jesus Mayorga, Gary Farmer, and Judge Reinhold.
Like Valentine, Easy Money was part of Media Rights Capital’s deal to rent the CW network’s Sunday night schedule. The ratings were terrible for the programming and the deal eventually fell apart.
Production of Easy Money was shut down after eight episodes and only four were shown last Fall. Considering how events between the two companies unfolded, it looked highly improbable that the show would resurface on the CW.
But now, the network has quietly scheduled the final four installments of Easy Money to begin running later month. They’ll air on Sunday nights at 7pm beginning July 26th, once Valentine has completed its run.
Whether the series will get some closure in the final episodes of Easy Money remains to be seen.
Will Morgan (Hephner) learn the details about his adoption or can Bobette (Metcalf) continue to keep the truth from him? Will he come clean to Julia (Thomason) about the nature of his family’s business? Will anyone tune in to find out?
