The LA Complex: Cancelled But Season Three Still Possible

la complex tv show canceledBell Media has reportedly cancelled The LA Complex after two seasons on the air. The low-rated drama may see a third season on The CW however.

The LA Complex revolves around a diverse group of performers who are trying to make it in Hollywood while living in the same apartment complex. The ensemble cast includes Andra Fuller, Benjamin Charles Watson, Cassie Steele, Chelan Simmons, Ennis Esmer, Jewel Staite, Joe Dinicol, and Jonathan Patrick Moore.

Six episodes were ordered for the first season and then, before they had aired here in the States, Bell ordered a second season of 13 episodes. According to THR, the ratings for season two were down in Canada so the broadcaster has opted not to order any more.

“Unfortunately the performance of the show was not strong enough for Much to be able to order another season,” said Vice-President, Communications for Bell Media Scott Henderson.

The CW is apparently still considering a third season of LA Complex and is having discussions with Epitome Pictures about continuing the show. Based on LA Complex’s poor ratings on The CW, a new deal doesn’t sound very realistic but you never know. We’ll keep you posted.

During the summer, CW President Mark Pedowitz said, “We’re actually big fans of the show… The show actually does really well for us digitally and in the social media space… There’s a sense of reality of what it’s like to try to make it in the Hollywood area in the entertainment industry; [Creator] Marty Gero is just fantastic. I hope to be in business with him for a long time.”

What do you think? Should The CW order season three of The LA Complex?

    Oh most definitely this show must come back. They left us on the edge of our seats at the end of season 2! Shame on Bell Media. They own too much in Canada and have a business mindset leaving no room for creative writing and acting. Those TV ratings they are talking about is going to be the joke of this decade. Nobody is watching TV anymore, what are they thinking?! Everything is online. LA Complex became popular online, not on TV. It’s so different for the regular TV programming, it probably confused those grandmas with remote controls. At the same time how can you even know how many people are watching?! These ratings are phony… Stories around Kaldrick are so strong and emotional that they stay with you as if you witnessed a plane crash, Raquel’s story is a strong one too, and so is Conner’s. Their fate at the end of season 2 is in such a vulnerable place that it would be cowardly to end the show this way. I believe many people in real life who are in somewhat similar situations may end up in even worse places… I mean , coming out as gay(Kaldrick) in real life can be a stressful nightmare, and facing a long jail sentence(Raquel) can drive people to do really unthinkable stuff… This show can be a classic one for this decade… Not fair to stop it like this! Not fair to viewers and the cast who are so emotionally consumed by their roles now.

    I just started watching the show and really love it. So I hope they bring it back for a third season. There are some very interesting characters to follow.

    “The LA Complex” was a great show and gave me something to look forward to in the week to watch.,..well that and “Once Upon A Time”. Please bring the show back or just have a spin-off show with Kaldrick King’s character or something. He is the main reason the show was as good as it was.

    YES!!! LA Complex should come back on air. With all the bad Tv shows on right now LA Complex is the only thing keeping me going. Without it everything is completley irrelevant.

    Yes, it should be given a chance… The show, Cheers was almost canceled, but,thanks to the executives of the network, who believed in the show, it wasn’t canceled.

    I’ll miss the Jewel Staite character and that cute Aussie character, oh well. Here’s hoping it gets picked up for a third season and they film it here in the states, in L.A.

    I think they should ordered a third season. I think the show’s season finale left way too many things unresolved and it is just not fair not to at least give it an ending that ties up all loose ends. Moreover, I think you need to find a stronger lead in show to come on before LA Complex to help boost the ratings..

    As much as i would like to see them renew it for a 3rd season with it being the lowest rated tart for a drama in history i think they should cancel it
