*7/9/21 update: Rutherford Falls has been renewed for a second season on Peacock.
It’s kinda obvious that the script has pretty much put an end to the relationships in the series. The entire premise is gone and looks like Peacock has buried this one for good.
Rutherford Falls should definitely be renewed. It’s well-written, well-acted, funny, serious, and it makes important points sugar-coated most effectively with humour. The episode where Terry (Michael Greyeyes) delivers what amounts to Rod Steiger’s speech from The Pawnbroker is startling and moving, and especially timely just now. Please don’t cancel this excellent show.
