Bell Media has reportedly cancelled The LA Complex after two seasons on the air. The low-rated drama may see a third season on The CW however.
The LA Complex revolves around a diverse group of performers who are trying to make it in Hollywood while living in the same apartment complex. The ensemble cast includes Andra Fuller, Benjamin Charles Watson, Cassie Steele, Chelan Simmons, Ennis Esmer, Jewel Staite, Joe Dinicol, and Jonathan Patrick Moore.
Six episodes were ordered for the first season and then, before they had aired here in the States, Bell ordered a second season of 13 episodes. According to THR, the ratings for season two were down in Canada so the broadcaster has opted not to order any more.
“Unfortunately the performance of the show was not strong enough for Much to be able to order another season,” said Vice-President, Communications for Bell Media Scott Henderson.
The CW is apparently still considering a third season of LA Complex and is having discussions with Epitome Pictures about continuing the show. Based on LA Complex’s poor ratings on The CW, a new deal doesn’t sound very realistic but you never know. We’ll keep you posted.
During the summer, CW President Mark Pedowitz said, “We’re actually big fans of the show… The show actually does really well for us digitally and in the social media space… There’s a sense of reality of what it’s like to try to make it in the Hollywood area in the entertainment industry; [Creator] Marty Gero is just fantastic. I hope to be in business with him for a long time.”
What do you think? Should The CW order season three of The LA Complex?
