The axe continues to fall in the US with more profile shows meeting their end.
CBS has renewed CSI: New York but axed CSI: Miami, Unforgettable and A Gifted Man.
With the network embarking on new scripted series something had to give. CSI: Miami is the longest-running of the cancellations, having enjoyed 10 seasons.
The network said in a statement, “CSI: Miami leaves an amazing television legacy — a signature look and style, global popularity and as a key player in CBS’s rise to the top over the past decade. We thank all the producers – led by Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman and Ann Donahue — and its talented cast, led by David Caruso, for 10 outstanding seasons. Viewers around the world will continue to enjoy rebroadcasts of CSI: Miami in syndication and on key digital platforms for many years to come.”
Somewhat controversially Gifted Man star Patrick Wilson tweeted “Thanks for the AGM love…but now that it’s ‘official,’ I couldn’t be happier,” about the show’s cancellation. “As good as it was (sometimes) it was not what I signed on for.”
“So… shocking to no one: #agiftedman is done,” he added. “Found out via email…and not from the network. Stay classy. Thanks to AGM fans! Great cast/crew!”
All shows air in Australia on Nine except A Gifted Man on TEN.
