It’s Official, THE OC’s Been Cancelled

theTVaddict.com has just learned from a source working on the production that THE OC was officially cancelled today by FOX. Naturally FOX is mum on the subject, but as soon as we hear something official from them, we’ll pass along the news. According to our source, the crew got the info on their call sheets today and although they knew it was coming, they’re still sad. THE OC will finish filming their final three episodes โ€” leaving season four at a mere eighteen episodes (rather then the usual twenty-one). An unjust fate for a show that was truly on the upswing this season. As Taylor Townsend might say, “qu’une dรฉception!”

  • AHHH..Just when it was getting GREAT again. Yes. GREAT. Not merely passable or good but GREAT… ACK…

    Ah well. Just as well that Fox keeps its track record for killing great shows (Arrested Development, Kitchen Confidential, The Tick, etc.)

  • Sam

    This doesn’t surprise me. It’s FOX for cying out loud. Then again, they did give us 24 and Prison Break. Still, I agree, this season was actually starting to get really good, back to it’s 1st season glory days.

  • Peter

    The season was only ordered for 16 episodes, so i dont see how it would even go 18, otherwise this is the most episodes that we would have gotten this year regardless….

  • Jenny

    Damn, like the others said, it’s been fantastic this season. ๐Ÿ™ Very sad. Hopefully they will be able to bring Jimmy back and get him back together with Miss I’ll-Marry-Anyone-For-Money and Seth and Summer will get married and Ryan and Taylor will be together. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Tim

    Damn, that sucks. I just hope they end it on a high note and not a cliffhanger. I hope they had enough time to plan for an ending.
