Emily Owens, MD: Cancelled, No Season Two

emily owens md canceledThe Mob Doctor has essentially been cancelled and now The CW has officially cancelled Emily Owens, MD. The network has revealed that they won’t be adding to the initial 13 episode order and won’t be asking for a second season either.

On the positive side, all 13 episodes of Emily Owens will air. Hopefully this means that faithful viewers will get some kind of closure to the drama’s ongoing storylines.

The news doesn’t come as a surprise. Emily Owens got off to a poor start and the ratings haven’t improved. This season’s Arrow has proven that the tiny network can still produce new hit shows — at least by their ratings standards anyway.

Emily Owens, MD revolves around a young physician who discovers that her new workplace isn’t all that different from her days at high school. The series stars Mamie Gummer, Justin Hartley, Aja Naomi King, Kelly McCreary, Harry Lennix, Necar Zadegan, and Michael Rady.

What do you think? Are you a fan of the show? Are you sorry to hear that it’s been cancelled? Why do you think it failed to attract a bigger audience?

    What is wrong with your network? You are canceling a great show. Until I discovered Emily Owens I never watched the CW. I was surprised to find such a quality show on your schedule, just another UHF station conversion with sham wow commercials, teen movies and 15 year old re-runs. Emily Owens is a class act; hopefully it will be picked up by another network with a larger viewer base.

    Unfortunately, I didn’t discover Emily Owens M.D. until the week of Thanksgiving but my interest in the show grew each week. I told my friends and family during the holidays to be sure & watch the series when it returned after the holiday break and now learn it has been cancelled. I just don’t understand how the network can cancel after 2 months. Some shows just take a little longer to find an audience- remember “Cheers”. I’m so sorry this isn’t going to continue because it was funny, heart warming and had a great cast & was so well written. I hope some other network will pick it up.

    No! This is very disheartening! I very rarely get into television shows, but with Emily Owens I look forward to watching! I never miss it and am very sad to hear this! It is such a refreshing show as opposed to many other raunchy shows today. I will continue to avidly watch until it flat lines. :'(

    I love this show! I think it just needs a little more time to have a chance! I’m so sorry to see this show get cancelled. I’m hoping that the ratings may pick up with the last few shows and they will reconsider. Networks cancel shows to prematurely now a days!!!!

    My wife and I have been watching the show and were sorry to see it cancelled. Ive heard all the arguments about the time slot and demographics, I agree that no show should have been launched in that slot but disagree that it was seniors who didnt watch, My wife and I are in our 60’s and never missed an episode. Too bad the network wont relaunch it at a better time. We liked it!!!
