Cobie Smulders Series No Season 2 – Deadline


EXCLUSIVE UPDATE: It will come as a shock for Stumptown Fans. The breakout series with Cobie Smulders, which was renewed for a second season in May, will not continue with the Season 2 order. The studio behind the show, ABC Signature, plans to shop it around and find it a new house, I hear.Stumptown was part of the fall 2020 ABC schedule announced in June, which is set to return to the 10 p.m. Wednesday slot it occupied last season. Sources said a timing issue related to the delay in starting production made it impossible for the show to be ready for a fall launch when the network had programming needs for the 2020-2021 season. As a result, the network made the decision not to go ahead with the new season ordered previously.

The series, which is filming in Los Angeles, had not started production and did not have a firm start date when the call not to go with season 2 went out this week. I hear the coronavirus pandemic played a big role in the delay, but that also had to do with the extra time it took for the scripts to be in good shape after the series changed creative direction with a change from showrunner to showrunner. end of season 1. I hear as a result, season 2 of Stumptown would not have been ready until April, the end of the broadcast season, which led to the cancellation. The cast and crew just got briefed on the decision this afternoon, I hear

The well-received dramatic action is the latest series to fall victim to the COVID-related production shutdown, which has scrambled schedules and led networks to reverse pickup decisions. These include The society and I don’t agree with that at Netflix and I am sorry at TBS.

As a high-end drama, Stumptown was already among the most expensive sophomore scripted TV series. Plus, with elaborate stunts, plenty of filming and romance, Stumptown is the type of series most affected by COVID-related restrictions, limiting the type of scenes the series could do and leading to significant budget increases.

One of the most anticipated new series of last season, Stumptown quickly developed a strong fan following and became a powerhouse of digital and delayed visualization.

Based on a series of graphic novels following veteran Dex Parios, it stars Cobie Smulders, Jake Johnson, Tantoo Cardinal, Cole Sibus, Adrian Martinez, with Camryn Manheim and Michael Ealy. Created and produced by Jason Richman, David Bernad, Ruben Fleischer, Greg Rucka, Matthew Southworth and Justin Greenwood are executive producers.
