Legend of the Seeker: Tribune Dumps Show But May Not Be Cancelled

Legend of the SeekerWhile the second season of Legend of the Seeker is still airing, a significant decision has already been made about the possibility of season three.

Legend of the Seeker is a fantasy series about a young woodsman (Craig Horner) who discovers he is actually destined to be a heroic Seeker. The series also stars Bridget Regan, Bruce Spence, Craig Parker, and Kevin J. Wilson.

The show is produced by ABC Studios and airs in syndication, primarily running on stations owned by the Tribune Company. The show debuted on November 1, 2008 and was renewed for second season after just 10 episodes had aired.

Season two kicked off on November 7, 2009 and now, after 13 episodes have aired, Tribune has decided they’ve had enough. According to KsiteTV and a representative of Tribune, the show’s ratings haven’t been good enough for them to renew Legend of the Seeker for season three.

While ABC has not made an announcement that the show has been cancelled, the Tribune Company represents a large percentage of stations that carry the series. ABC will have to do a lot of legwork to get it picked up by enough other stations.

The big questions are if the ratings are good enough for other stations to want to pick up the show and if the revenue will warrant ABC keeping the show going.

Co-Executive Producer Mike Sussman isn’t ready to give up just yet. Yesterday, he twittered a photo his show’s hero with his favorite Mark Twain quote, “The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.”

The remaining episodes of season two kick off on March 20th.

What do you think? Should Legend of the Seeker survive to see a third season?

    PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Season 3. Soon we will be in 2013 and no one made the third season. 3 years of SAVEOURSEEKER. People pay dollars and dollars for a third season and the productors didn’t listen to us!!!!!!!!!!!! If ABC studio don’t want to make so another studio have to do. The fans need their show!!!!! I hope ABC or another studio see this comment and make the third season. It’s true: Stars want their roles.

    I think that the cast should get the rights and produce the series on their own. Like the oroginal beverly hills 90210 guys did in the 90’s. This will ensure that the series continues.

    Plz don’t cancel the show!!! I have watched both seasons 3 times and love every episode so so much. It is now rated my number one favorite show, even above the vampire diares. And that’s saying a lot for me. I love Richard and Kahlan and never want them to end. Plz I want to see them more and more. Dylan is right. Most people don’t discover a show when there are only two season. If you give people a chance to find it the show will be the best ever. I just sent an email to everyone in my contacts to watch the show and help save it. The message even went to some of my teachers. Fans around the world care and love this show and never want to see it end. Plz bring season 3 back. We are all begging you. Why is the best action filled, charming, lovable, entertaining show being cancelled? Help save our seeker! Or suffer at the hands of the keeper.

    i my timing may fair a little late. I have high hope in this shows renewal and i this canceling it would be one of the biggest mistakes made by by ABC. i have watched and known many people to not watch a show until its third or forth some times even fifth season. For i my self have not discoverd many tv show till the brink of cancelation, but those fears calmed by another season. so i hope with good graces they will make the right desition and make a third season. so i may go on to is forth and fifth, and if not its there lose. one can only hope if they neglect to see a good show when is right in front of them that another with take this show on when it seems its time in the light is over
