Alcatraz information

cancelled TV seriesHas your favorite TV show been cancelled or will it be back for the 2012–2013 TV season? If your favorite series is on the list below, you have our condolences.

This list encompasses shows that have ended or have been cancelled and won’t be back for the 2012-13 season. It covers those that have gotten the ax roughly between September 1, 2011 and August 31, 2012. In some cases, the last episodes of shows aired months earlier but the network didn’t get around to canceling the series until later. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, try the 2010–2011 listings, the 2009–2010 listings, or maybe you’ve gotten lucky!

This list used to include Breaking Bad but, since the last half of season five won’t air until 2012-13 we’re putting it on the 2012-13 list.

Because there have been so many cancellations, we’ve split this list up into three pages. This is the first. You can also check out page two and page three.

Most recent additions: The Buried Life, Dog Whisperer, How to Rock, and Teen Mom.

Now, let’s take a moment to bow our heads and remember these fallen TV series… Read more…

Alcatraz TV show


On this FOX TV show, Detective Rebecca Madsen (Sarah Jones) works for the San Francisco Police Department and is assigned to a grisly homicide case. A fingerprint leads her to a seemingly impossible suspect, an Alcatraz inmate named Sylvane who died over 30 years ago. Her interest is immediately piqued since Rebecca's family has a history with the famous prison. Both her grandfather and her surrogate uncle, Ray Archer (Robert Forster), were guards there. When enigmatic government agent Emerson Hauser (Sam Neill) tries to stand in the way of her inquiries, she becomes even more committed to the case.
