FlashForward: Production Shuts Down on ABC Drama

Flash ForwardThe ratings for ABC’s FlashForward continue to tumble and it would seem that the network is concerned. Production on the series has been temporarily halted.

The work stoppage began last week and will continue through this holiday week. Production on the 13th episode is expected to begin on Monday when the cast and crew return.

ABC says that the break was built into the work schedule and was positioned to “boost the writing.” A spokesman said, “They want to maintain the high quality of the show, and this gives the writers the opportunity to do so.”

Of course, it doesn’t seem like much of a coincidence that the shut down comes right after FlashForward hit a series low in the ratings. It also follows the departure of Marc Guggenheim as a co-showrunner/executive producer. Co-creator/exec producer David Goyer is now the sole showrunner.

What do you think? Do you think the production stoppage comes as a result of the declining ratings?

    That’s bullcrap. I love flash forward and I want to see the 2nd season. Revamp the cast a little bit. Show some more flesh, but for God sakes put the show back on the air. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

    Everytime I like an ABC show they cancel it….Loved Traveler, October Road,….then wanted to give up on ABC dramas but started to really look forward to watching Flash forward each week. This stinks!!!!! The ones they keep just are ones that fit my taste. These shows left me waiting for the next episode. If I missed it, I would be online at 12:01 to watch it at ABC.com
