King: Cancelled, No Season Three [report]

King cancelledThough Showcase hasn’t announced it, word is that the Canadian TV series King has been cancelled.

Starring Amy Price-Francis, King revolves around Jessica “Jess” King, a tough police detective who’s trying to make her third marriage work while taking on a new job as head of the Major Crimes Task Force. Her police unit takes over cases already in progress: the toughest cases that the ordinary police force has failed to solve. Other actors in the show include Gabriel Hogan, Alan van Sprang, Tony Nardi, Suzanne Coy, Zoe Doyle, Aaron Poole, Rossif Sutherland, and Karen Robinson.

King debuted on April 17, 2011. The eight episodes of season one performed well enough to secure a second year of 13 installments. Production resumed in September 2011 and season two kicked off on February 29, 2012.

The ratings dropped significantly in year two, falling as low as 42,000 viewers. Some episodes of season one drew over 200,000 viewers.

The 21st and final episode of King aired on May 25th.

What do you think? Are you a fan of King? Are you upset that there won’t be a third season?

Of course they cancelled another good show. They always cancel the good shows. All the reality shows that cost peanuts and that are absolutely ridiculous get a the majority of the time slots.

I really love this series. Great actors, well-elaborated stories and not too overdone.
Please revive the series!

Unbelievable. Does no one recognize talent and story plot any more? I guess it’s just about total nonsense on tv now!
Shame on everyone who decided to cancel this excellent series.

I was so excited to see KING on TV tonight. How disappointing it is a re-run. We missed series one and were looking forward to season three……why do the good shows get cancelled?

I started watching King not really sure what to expect and was pleasantly suprised with the show. After watching the end of Season 2, I jumped on the net to see when the new season was starting and to see how the loose ends from Season Two got sorted out eg Jess and Danny’s relationship. I would be happy to sign a petition to get the show running for a third season.

We’ve loved King in Australia and were really looking forward to some of the ongoing relationships being further developed. Very disappointed that there will be no season 3. Couldn’t we just have 3 or 4 more episodes to tie up the loose ends.

Disappointed. I agree the Canadian programme are of a high standard. Hence the americans buying them up.

But King was at times very intense but felt like real life
