The Firm: NBC Reschedules Final Four Episodes

The Firm canceled show rescheduledAs fans of The Firm may have noticed, the cancelled legal drama was bumped from the schedule once again last Saturday night. As a result, NBC has adjusted their schedule and delayed the final four episodes by one week each.

If you watch the show via Hulu, you may have already seen the 19th episode. A note on the streaming website says, “Due to a programming error, Chapter 19 went up earlier than intended. We apologize for the error – it will become available again this weekend.”

You can see the revised airdates below, as well as brief episode descriptions:

“CHAPTER NINETEEN”
06/23/2012 (10:00PM – 11:00PM) (Saturday) : A KILLER NEW CASE – Joey Morolto (guest star Gianpaolo Venuta, “Being Human”) gives Mitch (Josh Lucas) an offer he can’t refuse — if Mitch defends his best friend from a murder charge, the McDeeres and the Moroltos will be square. As Abby (Molly Parker) tries to save her mother’s charity from a crooked accountant, she makes an unexpected realization about herself. Callum Keith Rennie and Natasha Calis also star.

“CHAPTER TWENTY”
06/30/2012 (10:00PM – 11:00PM) (Saturday) : When Mitch’s (Josh Lucas) client admits to a potentially damaging incident from his college days, Mitch has to face an aggressive prosecutor to prevent it from coming into the trial. Meanwhile, Abby (Molly Parker) has to decide if she is on board with working for Joey Morolto, Jr. (guest star Gianpaolo Venuta, “Being Human”). Juliette Lewis, Callum Keith Rennie and Natasha Calis also star.

“CHAPTER TWENTY-ONE”
07/07/2012 (10:00PM – 11:00PM) (Saturday) : Mitch (Josh Lucas) and his team scramble to come up with a viable defense in Patrick Walker’s case, forcing them to begin jury selection without a plan. Meanwhile, Joey Morolto, Jr. (guest star Gianpaolo Venuta, “Being Human”) implements a deadly strategy to regain control over his mob family. Juliette Lewis, Molly Parker, Callum Keith Rennie and Natasha Calis also star.

There’s no description available for the series finale but “Chapter Twenty-Two” is set to air on July 14th.

    The Firm was a pretty good show that deserved better than it got. The series finale was a cliffhanger that was truly not fair to the show’s faithful. Maybe Bravo or some other network will pick it up so we can see what happened to Mitch in his the last case. What a disppointment!

    I hope DVRing is accounted for when you get ratings. In this busy day and age, DVRing is more common than watching live. The Firm was a great show that deserves a 2nd season.

    It really really sucks that a great show like the Firm is ending. But it’s not surprising, every time a great show comes along, the big people on top decide to cancel it!!! I think all the viewers of the Firm should make a lot of noise and convince those who are in charge to keep the show going. The last episode didn’t really seem like the end…

    Its a shame quality doesn’t count on TV –
    Lets have another House wifes show or something
    thought provoking like that…. Thanks for nothing NBC …

    You damned this show from the start. Put your best show
    on at 9 or 10 pm on a Saturday night, and no one would watch that
    either.

    Who is making the decisions on canceled shows????This was the best new show in a long time, and it will be missed.

    It’s true, what a disappointment to see the show end. Then to throw gas on the fire they end it with a cliff hanger like there will be another season. What a tease. NBC, who’s gathering your ratings? Obviously not the people watching. This was a very good show, coming from someone who watches a fair amount of programs. It was at least good for another season. Besides how many good ratings do you get from a program like this on a Saturday night. If it wasn’t for recording my favorites I wouldn’t have watched it either. If fact I don’t watch anything I care about on real time, I record and watch when I can give it my full attention. Please rethink this decision. PLEASE!!

    Please find a way to continue this excellent show. I watch very few tv shows and this was one of them. You leave us with a cliffhanger — come on, wrap this up with another season.

    great show, nbc is stupid for canceling. there must have been a problem with public relations for the ratings to be as low as they apparently were, maybe the best show on tv !

    Very disappointed NBC is not planning to bring back The Firm. I have really enjoyed the show. With all the garbage reality shows on it a shame a good drama can’t survive. Hope NBC reconsiders.

    NBC just left us with an amazing cliffhanger. they did that to us with Heroes, and they’ve done it again. this show was great and the plot was engaging. i am very disappointed.

    The Firm was a great show in a sea of really bad shows. Really hope it is picked up again. We watched each episode religiously.

  12. JJ says

    I’ve recorded the first season, but have not watched it. Should I bother? Did the primary storyline reach a conclusion?

  13. says

    Why show a series finale with no conclusion. They said “6 weeks later’ show Mitch running rooftops—-and nothing? With so much reality junk inundating tv, this show was entertaining.
