Prior to NBC’s cancellation of American Odyssey, series creator and executive producer Kay Foster shared that an alternate ending had been filmed. It’s now been released.
Unfortunately, the added scene might frustrate devoted fans of the series even more. Take a look (you’ve been warned):
What do you think? Do you think this alternate ending should have been used instead?
Cancelling this program after one season is an example of extremely poor planning. If the network isn’t prepared to commit to a second season in advance, their executives should end the season with a properly executed ending. As it is, American Odyssey simply runs off the cliff into a sea of nowhere, leaving the audience forever dangling. I just get the sick sense that the people running the show behind closed oaken doors simply don’t give a damn. They made their money, then split. Unforgivable! P.S. Other comments suggest that the series was too politically controversial, fiction revealing truths too… Read more »
This show was EXCELLENT and I was extremely disappointed that it was cancelled! NBC, what were you thinking?
Anyone who does not understand that our own government is responsible for this program’s cancellation is sadly naive. As others have suggested – too close to truth to be tolerated as ‘entertainment’ by those who see themselves as being at risk if the American public knew about these type of activities – which have been going on for decades.
I say “absolutely!” Try as state run media does, under the NDAA, article 41 (I think) THIS SHOW WAS SO ABSOLUTELY SPOT ON, they pulled it. I knew they would because it’s their M.O. And no doubt they read comments so let me say THAT EVERYTIME YOU ALL MAINTAIN YOUR M.O., YOU GIVE MUCH MORE CREDIBILITY TO THE TRUTH COMMUNITY. HAHA, Several videos on YT shortly after this aired was betting it would get pulled. You all are so predictable.
That was my very first thought when I read, in shock, that this fantastic program was cancelled. The government put the pressure on and succeeded in this show getting the axe. They want to keep all their egregious acts on the down-low but we’re a wiser nation these days. We know what they were up to.
I loved this show. I think it happened to be a little too close to reality that this country’s most powerful were offended. They need to continue with their fake lives as good people. This show probably made them squirm a bit. They do not need thesheep of this country’s to become aware.
100% agree with you, too close too reality and these scumbags didn’t want people to catch more ideas
Absolutely Karen and Joseph…hit the nail on the head! I’m sure this show made them very twitchy.
So sorry this show was cancelled.
This show was very good, i am very disappointed…
Sorry, there was no way to edit my comment – this looked like and absolutely AWESOME show and I was so excited about it — when I saw that it was cancelled I was beyond glad that I had no ties to the characters and that I had not WASTED 13 hours of my life in yet another network KNIFE IN THE BACK. NBC appears to have once again cut its own throat – wonder what RIDICULOUS reality show they replaced a great program with?
If you watch it on Netflix…I don’t think you would be disappointed…it was like a 13 hour mini series and I’m not sure how it ended on NBC, but on Netflix it wrapped up ok…I think it was worth the watch, totally entertaining and as a single season, I was not upset to find out that there would be no season 2. There are no cliffhangers and the season holds its own as a single season, at least as it was watched on Netflix…perhaps they have the alternate ending that has been talked about. I was so wrapped up in… Read more »
dixiedragon, watching just season one is well worth it. I have watched it three times already and loved every second.
THANKFULLY when I saw this was premiering, I DID NOT start watching it because networks ABC NBC CBS FOX are NOTORIOUS for cancelling shows leaving viewers stranded with nothing but questions. IF a show survives the first season and is renewed, I will catch up in a marathon viewing on a pirate site THEN I will follow the network in the SECOND season. If the show is NOT renewed, I have no time invested in the show and no emotion invested in the characters. You would be shocked at how many hours and how much emotional “trauma” LOL I have… Read more »
OMG I cant believe you canceled this show it was so awesome !!!!!!! How could you????? NBC you seriously suck always canceling shows that i fall in love with !!!!!
You know what to do then, stop watching NBC shows!!!
Am so disappointed that you took AMERICAN O off of the air. Bring it back. What is the reason? My husband and I looked forward to watching it every week. Much better than all of the reality shows. Always get so disappointed in the network when they just up and cancel.
