CW UpFront Rumours: VERONICA MARS Cancelled

Draining even more suspense from tomorrow’s CW UpFront presentation (as this TV Addict ponders why he even bothered to show up in New York — oh wait, to paraphrase Barney, NYC is awesome!) — Variety is reporting that the CW has officially greenlit three new dramas, and gave Veronica Mars her walking papers.

Renewed series include SMALLVILLE, SUPERNATURAL and ONE TREE HILL as well as the hilarious and underappreciated CW laugher EVERYBODY HATES CHRIS.

Not so lucky is VERONICA MARS. While nothing’s official, sources close to the show say ‘Mars” is indeed coming to an end.

On the new drama front, THE OC’s Josh Schwartz is headed back to TV (and not a moment too soon, I’m still in OC withdrawl) with GOSSIP GIRL along with two new dramas REAPER and WILD AT HEART.

And finally, just in case you were worried, 7th HEAVEN remains cancelled with absolutely no hope for another last-minute miraculous renewal. When reached for comment, even the ‘big guy upstairs’ had to concede, “It’s about time” adding quickly, “I miss EVERWOOD.” We at couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

    This runs contrary to what Ausiello is saying- he’s reporting that the fate won’t be decided until later, possibly as late as June 15. Frankly, I’d rather know now- another month of not knowing whether it’s gonna continue is agony.

    How can you put as a tittle VM cancelled if nothing is official yet? I have to have hopes until the end! I cant believe the show is being cancelled until it is official.

    I was sad to see alot of shows go over the years, Everwood and Felicity being the hardest ones for me to let go personally, but VM is on a whole nutha level. I think if it gets cancelled it will be my number 1 most missed show of all time. I have really enjoyed EVERY episode so far and will be very sad to let that one go! It has many stories left to tell and I know they haven’t had time to wrap it up properly. Give it at least 13 for mid season or something.. geesh, they are killing us here! :)

    I think Veronica if she doesn’t land a fall spot it could/should get a mid season order. It sells well on DVD and iTunes. I mean they picked The Game up for season two! I mean Hidden Palms has been sitting on the shelf for almost a year and there is talk of if the summer run is good, season two could come mid season. Come on Veronica Mars FBI season 4!

  • Common Sense

    I feel your pain, Babygirr. Felicity & Everwood tore my heart out, losing them. VM is not as near to me, personally, as those two…but it’s a good one, and we have no one to blame, really, but a moronic viewing audience that just refuses to watch quality TV shows.

  • TeenieBopper

    Jesus christ, who the hell is actually watching One Tree Hill and Smallville anymore? I watched a few episodes last year and it was the god awful, useless, cliched, not to mention completely unbelievable drivel EVER. And don’t even get me started on Smallville. I’ve watched that show from the beginning, and when it started to suck horribly in season 4, I stayed with it. I finally had to stop watching this year because it was just that awful.

    You know, I’m all for scripted television over this reality/game show garbage, but I can’t honestly say that Deal or No Deal is worse than those two shows.

  • Jasmine

    Thank God this worthless show is cancelled! I mean seriously this show was terrible, I’m glad to see it gone now if we could only get the little fan girls to stop whinning the world would be a wonderful place.

  • VCAD

    I can’t believe America would rather watch the crap of OTH (that’s a soap opera for God’s sake!) than the great writting and great acting of VM! there’s no hope in this world….

  • Linda B.

    babygirrr and Common Sense – I miss Felicity too. That was one of my favorite shows. I wanted her to end up w/ Noel though.

  • Tim Wilkins

    NNNOOOOOO!! I’m hoping for an 11 th hour reprieve. Hey, if 7th Freaking Heaven can get it, why can’t VM? Oh, that all important ratings. I’m no Neilsen family, but I guess that doesn’t count. If this is true, I’m gonna miss it. Good bye Veronica Mars!!!
