Napoleon Dynamite: canceled or renewed? information

Cancelled TV shows for 2011-12It happens every year. The networks and cable channels cancel TV shows to make room for new series that will hopefully attract lots and lots of viewers. The 2011-12 season is no exception.

This list encompasses shows that have been cancelled or have ended 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 some 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 the UK’s Skins but, since the last season won’t air until 2012-13, we’re holding it until the 2012-13 list.

Because there have been so many cancellations, we’ve split this list up into three pages. This is the third. Here is page one and here is page two.

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

Napoleon Dynamite

Based on the cult-classic movie, this animated TV series follows the comic adventures of America's most awesomely awkward teenager and his offbeat family and friends as they navigate small-town life in rural Idaho. Napoleon Dynamite Napoleon (Jon Heder) is a 16-year-old boy who's convinced (for no apparent reason) that he's destined for greatness and blessed with an unlimited number of "sweet abilities." He spends his days practicing ninja moves, drawing ligers, soul dancing, and bragging about his "girlfriend in Oklahoma" (whom no one has ever seen). Whether he's facing down bullies or discovering the meaning of friendship, Napoleon proves that true heroes follow their own path -- especially when they have secret ninja skills from the government. Napoleon's brother Kip (Aaron Ruell) is an unemployed 32-year-old who lives at home and believes he would be an amazing catch for any girl who responds to his online come-ons. The Dynamite brothers live with their Grandma (Sandy Martin), a crusty woman who can often be found four-wheeling with her lady friends at the local sand dunes. Pedro (Efren Ramirez) is Napoleon's unflappable best friend who, incredibly, was recently been elected class president. Deb (Tina Majorino) is an incredibly sweet girl who sees the good in Napoleon and dreams of someday being his wife. Napoleon's Uncle Rico (Jon Gries) lives out of an orange custom van. He obsesses over his botched high school football career and dreams up ways to become rich and famous. Rex Kwon Do (Diedrich Bader) is a self-proclaimed martial-arts master who runs the local dojo.
