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 think flow-TV is slowly getting their ass kicked by Netflix – you can no longer base your viewings on how many is watching a show the first time it is showed on cable. To bad – they could make a fortune on books, new episodes and so on, a real fanbase is slowly building up based on online viewers. So disappointed there is no more episodes — well back to watching Netflix’s own shows ;) RIP flow-TV…

I’ve just watched The Gates on DVD and I thought it was a great series.
I was looking forward to the next episodes but there are none.
What happened?

It takes these lard-asses in New York or LA to make a decision bases on demographics and not what people really want to see. Instead of a quality show like The Gates we are afforded hillbilly swamp people or slutty housewives. Reality has ruined TV. Try again!

It’s too bad this show ended. I watched the 1st full season. Then, I re-watched it. Good plot. Fun escape. Too many other stupid shows hogging the air that suck in comparison.

I am a college student so I can’t exactly afford cable so I am a die hard Netflix fan and just got into this series like two weeks ago. And I’ve been telling everyone about The Gates and I just watched the last episode today and wanted to see when season 2 was coming out and found that there’s not going to ever be. So is there any way to petition this if we get enough people on board? I need season 2 to happen because I love this show! I was in the army so I was unaware that this show ever ever existed! Please make a season 2!!!!!

Nice idea and all but i think you’re a little late for that :(

Anyways you’ll really like The Vampire Diaries if you liked The Gates, I seriously recommend it

Well written, well acted show. Would love the series to continue. I’ve watched it when it first ran & several times on Netflix. Like others, I’m frustrated with not knowing the next chapter. It’s a smart show. If it can’t be a series, how about a special to book end the series? Please!
