The Gates: ABC TV Show Cancelled; Stars and Writers React and Thank Fans

The GatesAs expected, ABC has cancelled The Gates after one season on the air. The ratings certainly didn’t dictate a second season and a couple weeks ago, series star Frank Grillo said that he’d heard unofficially that the show wouldn’t be back.

Though even actress Lindsay Lohan wanted to see it return, it’s now been confirmed that The Gates has indeed been cancelled. Some of the people connected with the show have tweeted about the series’ passing.

From the show’s Twitter feed comes, “We would like to thank our followers for sticking with us through this great journey.”

Gates creator Richard Hatem wrote simply, “Thanks to everyone who loved it. DVD set to be released…someday?”

Consulting producer and writer Robert Hewitt Wolfe tweeted, “Thank you to #TheGates fans, crew & cast for a great run. It was a blast. Seriously some of the best fans ever.” He later posted, “4 sale, lux devlpmnt/incrprtd town w/ upscale owners, prvt police/fire, exclnt school, occasional mysterious death”

Colton L Haynes wrote, “Was a great/fun experience and thk u all for coming along for the ride!. He followed that up with, “THE GATES cast and crew: thk u all for the good times! Learned alot and had a great summer with u all! Cheers to the future!” and posted this photo with #ripBrettCreski. Wolfe responded, “Sob… Too young!”

The GatesJames Preston looks forward to the future, tweeting, “No worries gates fans follow us on to our new exciting roles!” Travis Caldwell echoed that sentiment, saying, “its all good more to come from all of us !!!”

Justin Miles wrote, “We gave em a hell of a run, though…” Janina Gavankar feels similarly, saying, “Sad. But we’re incredibly proud of what we made.”

Young McKaley Miller tweeted, “thank you guys for all the support!! seriously, y’all are awesome!! #TheGates is officially over, but it was such a great experience!! TY :)”

Andrea Powell wrote, “Thanks for all the love, fans of #TheGates. We’ll miss you! :-*”

Rachel Dipillo wrote, “We had a fun ride on The Gates. Love everyone I worked with and can’t wait to see what you do next! #RIPLEXIEWADE”

Grillo tweeted, “Thanks to all of you for supporting us. It made the whole thing worth it. Lots more fun stuff coming.” Grillo also said that he’d share what would have happened in the second season. After son Charlie is saved, Nick and his family would have stayed in the Gates community. The Radcliffs decide to take a break from one another. Leigh becomes the head of the police and Nick takes over the Gates board and oversees the community.

What do you think? Are you sorry that The Gates won’t be back for season two? What would you have liked to see happen?

    Bring back the gates. Give me a reason to want to watch TV again. Don’t be like the other network. You know the one that cancels a good show after a couple of seasons. And airs the reruns for decades after the final episode. Bring back the gates, give the people what they want, and turn it into a media frenzy. Bring back the gates. It’s never too late.

    It’s a shame that an awesome show that really sucked you in can be cancelled after 1 season. While real crap fills the air waves. You would think good taste should be a requirement, to have authority to dictate what people want to see. But enough of that can we please keep mash on the air for at least another decade.

    Like so many, I just found “The Gates” on Netflix. Really enjoyed it. They need to make several more seasons.

    They do need to bring out a season 2 because it was not left off right at all. I watched all 12 of The Gate in 9 hrs and I LOVED it. Please figuer out a network that will play it and get it done. I could watch plenty of seasons with the story line you have created. Please bring it back

    I just found it on Netflix and watched the whole season in 3 days. Loved it! I can’t believe all the fun entertaining shows get canceled…..Firefly, Dresden, Merlin, to name a few….yet Snookie, the Kardashians, and real housewives get season after season of crap, drama, and bull****! I canceled my cable because I don’t want to watch this crap! Thank you Netflix for giving me rainy day and evening entertainment!

    This was a great show with a creative and fun spin on the whole supernatural thing.
    Love it and hope they pick it up with better time slot you cant blame a show for network timing!
