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?

    I would live to see someone pick up where ABC stopped and continue the story. SciFi would do a super job.Please bring back The Gates!!!!!

    I need more of the gates. I’ve never knew about the show til I saw it on Netflix. It was amazing. I watch all episodes in 3 day and juggling twin 3 year olds. If any show needs to come back it should be the gates. Please make a second season.

    I really would love for it to come back it was amazing .. great story line !! I believe the only reason it didn’t get great ratings is because most people didn’t know about it I’m positive if it was brought back and advertised more it would be one of the most watched.. I myself only found out about it this week and I loved it so much that I watched the full season in 2 days !! Wanting more I Google it.. makes me so sad to know that was it :(.. This voting from me is a huge compliment because I do not watch TV .. it has to be really good and this was definitely great! Please come back on!!!!

    It’s 2/27/2014, the date I started watching this spectacular show. I never that it was going to be such a great series that I had to watch all 13 episodes in one day (on LetMeWatchThis.com), not being able to tear myself away. I only wish that it would have gotten better ratings so it would have kept on airing. I actually do not see why it didn’t get higher ratings because I absolutely loved it! #great show…..
