As expected A Gifted Man was cancelled by CBS over the weekend. It was no surprise to the show’s star, Patrick Wilson. Via Twitter, he noted that he’d been expecting the cancellation for about two months.
Wilson wasn’t crazy however about the way that he was informed about the show being cancelled. Wilson noted, “So…shocking to no one: #agiftedman is done.Found out via email…and not from the network.Stay classy.Thanks to AGM fans! Great cast/crew!” (He later acknowledged that the “Stay classy” part was indeed a nod to Anchorman.)
A very busy and versatile performer, it doesn’t sound like Wilson is as upset about the cancellation as some of the show’s fans.
He followed up with, “Thanks for the AGM love…but now that it’s “official,”I couldn’t be happier. As good as it was(sometimes) it was not what I signed on for.”
Wilson tweeted on Sunday, “At St. Patrick’s cathedral…. Breathtaking…. Puts a lot in perspective. Go dag. :)”
What do you think? Are you sorry to hear that A Gifted Man won’t be back? Would you like to see Wilson in a new TV series someday? What kind? Perhaps on a show that would showcase his singing?

I loved that series and he would fit in very well in the Good Doctor or New Amsterdam or the Resident

I’ve only got 8 episodes left of 16, which makes each episode such a treasure that I hate to get to the end of each one. I’ve begun watching half at a sitting to extend the experience! Every episode has been captivating and the acting is first rate. It’d be fabulous if someone would recreate a continuation of this series today! We’ve gotten so inundated with bad tv that it’s rare to have an interesting plot… Read more »
I’m a little late coming to the party having seen The Gifted Man only for the first time today. I watched the entire season as I was home sick then rather shocked to read that it was cancelled!. I loved all the characters and I thought they were just becoming truly delovoped with tons of potential. I really wanted to see more and know what paths they were going to take. I think it was a great mistake to cancel this show. Does a show need to have sex, violence and nudity to be viable these day? i’m a young… Read more »
