The Bridge: CTV Cancels TV Series, No Season Two

The BridgeLast summer, CBS started running The Bridge, a cop drama that the network had licensed from Canada. CBS apparently had little faith in the series since they began airing it on Saturday nights with little promotion. To no surprise, the ratings were terrible. CBS pulled The Bridge off the schedule after three episodes, leaving 10 unaired.

In Canada, it was a different story. CTV ran all of the installments of Bridge between March and May 2010. It was successful enough for CTV to renew the show for season two.

Now, it seems Bridge won’t get a second season after all. According to THR, CTV, Entertainment One, and series creator Craig Bromell have mutually agreed not to to proceed with year two. CTV said it will work with Bromell, Bridge star Aaron Douglas, and Entertainment One on future projects, including a drama about a police drug squad that’s now in development.

The Bridge follows Frank Leo (Douglas), a charismatic cop who’s voted unanimously to become the leader of the police union. He ends up fighting crime on the streets while also battling corruption on the force. The series features Douglas, Frank Cassini, Michael Murphy, Ona Grauer, Paul Popowich, and Theresa Joy.

it is unfortunate that i was only able to watch the series this year. I did find the series interesting. Good cop vs bad cop plus how do you beat corruption in the system. Would be great how to find out what is the best way to beat this. Oh well… lucky me.. i do hope that even if it took me 2 years later from the time this was aired to watch it, they would put up together a Season 2.
