The (finally) judgment is in. NBC has officially cancelled Bluff City Law after only one season and 10 episodes.
The legal drama stars Caitlin McGee as Sydney Strait, a brilliant lawyer who joins her estranged father at his law firm after her mother passes away. The cast also includes Jimmy Smits, Scott Shepherd, Barry Sloane, Michael Luwoye, MaameYaa Boafo, Stony Blyden, and Jayne Atkinson.
The writing seemed to be on the wall when the network opted not to order any additional installments of the low-rated Monday night series beyond the initial 10 episode order. However, the network insisted that the show was still in the running for a 2020-21 renewal. The last episode aired on November 25, 2019.
Of NBC’s new crop of scripted series for 2019-20, only Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist was renewed for a second season. In addition to Bluff City Law, freshman series Indebted, Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector, Sunnyside, and Perfect Harmony have all been cancelled.
