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?

    I couldn’t have said it any better than what LV has written!
    Loved that show! It’s a shame it’s been replaced with garbage.

    It seems every time there is a show with substance, it is whisked away into the vault with all the other good shows and replaced with obnoxious, ill mannered subjects in reality shows that make no sense nor offer any intelligent value, merely shock tv and ratings. If there is any way you could leave a show like King on the air. You are saving millions of brain cells of our youth not to mention us adults. It would be nice to watch a show with a real storyline and not some incessant whining of me,me,me…and why is this happening to me..

    My husband and I just found King this season and we have made it one of our favorites. I’m working on ordering season 1 today and found that the show is to be cancelled. If our votes count – please put us down for 2 YES on this series. Hope you can find a way for it to stay.

    This show is very well acted, directed, produced and created with multi-talented people working in it. It makes me proud of this Canadian show. I’m so upset I did not follow the show when it just started. I’m hooked on it! I hope the network will seriously consider in putting future shows and not cancel it for its 3rd season….

    Shows like King makes me proud to be Canadian. It is a very well acted, directed, produced and created show that has very talented people working in it. I hope the network considers on putting additional future shows. I’m so hooked. I feel bad I did not follow it when it started….

    It’s a shame that a smart Canadian show is cancelled, while other Canadian shows, poorly written and badly performed, remain.

    I just discovered this show on my new iPad. I became totally addicted and am very distressed to see it cancelled. I was all ready for the new season. It was fast paced, seemed fairly realistic and loved that it was set in To. How do they make these decisions? I felt the same way when Chicago Code was cancelled. Loved the cast.

    I am SO very Disappinted that King has been dropped. It’s a fantastically fresh, interesting, quick witted and entertaining crime show. Why wont they resign it??

    Australia is missing out!!!

    I am disappointed to see how all the good movies are cancelled. Left in suspense. You could have make two more episodes and give an end to this movie. Is not fair… bring it back!

    It’s sad that another good show didn’t get renewed for a third season. The character development was really interesting and was looking forward to delve more into each of the characters and their respective quirks. Please bring it back!
