Last week, CBS announced the cancellation of celebrity reality show Armed & Famous and that it would be pulled immediately from the Wednesday night schedule. There’s a possibility that the unaired episodes might see the light of day in the Summer months. Well, it turns out fans of the show won’t have to wait that long.
Cable network VH1 has announced that they will be airing Armed & Famous, starting this Saturday, February 3rd. They’ll be broadcasting a five-hour marathon, beginning with the first four episodes at 5pm. Episode number five, not previously seen on CBS, will air at 9pm. They’ll be rerun on February 7th starting at noon. What will happen after that is up in the air.
Seven episodes of Armed & Famous were originally slated to be produced and, when CBS pulled the plug, five had been finished. It’s unknown right now when or if the final two episodes will be completed. A VH1 spokesman said, “If the producers deliver to us the sixth and seventh episodes of the show, then we will air them. As of now, it’s unclear whether they are finishing them or not.”
For its part, CBS considers the series “on hiatus” though there are no plans to produce additional episodes and the series doesn’t have any set date to return. We’ll keep you posted if we hear more so stay tuned!
