HawthoRNe: Cast Reacts to TV Show Cancellation

HawthoRNe canceledIn case you haven’t heard, TNT has cancelled HawthoRNe after three seasons on the air. The medical drama ran for 30 episodes total, from June 2009 until August 2011. HawthoRNe’s ratings started out strong but dipped each season. It was the lowest-rated drama on TNT this summer except for Men of a Certain Age, a drama that was cancelled after two seasons on the air.

Series star Jada Pinkett Smith broke the news to her fans by writing, “Hey everyone…if you don’t know Hawthorne will not be returning for another season. I want to say thank you to all the fans for being Hawthorne soldiers. All our facebook fans…twitter soldiers and viewers…you held us down. Of course you know there is more to come…believe it!”

Following a steamy scene between Smith and costar Marc Anthony, there were rumors that the two were having an affair. Supposedly, she and her husband, Will Smith, were also splitting up. The Smiths issued a statement last week that addressed the rumors, “Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false. We are still together, and our marriage is intact.”

Vanessa Lengies (CNO Kelly Epson) sympathized with HawthoRNe fans who were sad about the show’s demise and tweeted, “Loyal HawthoRNe followers, u know if it was up 2 me I would play Kelly 4 you til you asked me 2 stop.” She also posted a few backstage photos of herself and the cast.

Aisha Hinds (Isabel Walsh) was upset by the cancellation news and wrote, “:-( Boooo!!! Love my HawthoRNe Family!”

What do you think? Are sorry to see the TV series end? Could HawthoRNe have been saved?

    Tell Jada to get in touch with Oprah and arrange to bring HawthoRNe over to the OWN network. The show has a strong enough following and would help the struggling network as well. Its just a thought. If they do decide to do the show elsewhere, I would like to provide a little piece of advice. Stay away from the over the top somewhat unrealistic drama. This show was awesome in the beginning because it focused on the characters . It seemed to move at a more realistic pace as different situations developed in their lives. In the final season the characters were going from zero to 60. It was too much , too fast. It was sensationalism. The show didnt need it. Maintain your standards and your pace. Good drama without overkill. Thanks :-)

    I loved this show. We’ll never know the outcome of the shooting. I hate that maybe they need to do one more show 2 hours longs to finalize the finale. The characters were wonderful and the show was realistic. The stars did a GREAT job!!
