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.

Should Legend of the Seeker be cancelled?

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?

Hey, how about an update???

Here it is a year after this article was posted and still no word yet as to the final status of LOTS.

I can understand some reluctance about renewing, however, the most common complaint I’ve read is that LOTS was shown at 5PM on Saturdays; or 6PM Sundays; or some other weird time. And, I understand their concerns about ratings, but it’s entirely the fault of Tribune Media for running the show in non-primetime hours.

So, update us already!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really hope the show continues. I love a good fantasy show and this one has it all. It would really be a shame to see another good show get cancelled due to inaccurate polls and ratings. More than likely the drop in score has nothing to do with the quality of the show but other factors that are not being considered, like people having to take 2-3 jobs just to make it in todays economy. Anyway….KEEP IT GOING!!!! ……… Please ?!?
