'Legend of the Seek' Cancelled.

Legend of the Seeker will not be renewed for a third season according to that article.

Kinda sucks, while I've only seen the first season it was a lot more enjoyable than one would think, if you can get past the lackluster pilot.

Re: 'Legend of the Seek' Cancelled.

I only seen a couple episodes, it seemed pretty good, It seemed like it had really good production values for a syndicated show

Re: 'Legend of the Seek' Cancelled.

The show's surprisingly decent as a brought-to-modern "Hercules" style of fantasy serial, but it's been so scattershot with its broadcast times this season that this isn't a big surprise. Episodes would air at random points throughout the weekend (at least at the beginning of the season), from Saturday afternoon to Sunday midday. I like the show, the cast, and the production level, so it's still a shame to hear the news.

It's a syndicated show, so random start-times would be the fault of your local channel. It plays at the same time week after week where I am.

Sucks on the news though, I enjoy the show. I hope they're able to wrap up the Keeper storyline.

Damn this sucks. I really enjoyed season 1 and found the story for season 2 to be interesting based on where it was headed (I only watched the first 3 or 4 so far). Hopefully they'll wrap up the season arc and wrap everything.

Bummer. I've had to watch on Hulu due to random air times in my area

Re: 'Legend of the Seek' Cancelled.

So I guess there's no chance now for seasons 1 and 2 on BD? Will season 2 at least get a DVD release?

That's sad news. I enjoyed the show. Nothing really deep or anything, but entertaining.

Well that's a shame, on this end. Thanks for the info, though.

Re: 'Legend of the Seek' Cancelled.

Too bad. This was a surprisingly good show. I got into the habit of letting them stack up on the DVR but once I watched one it usually turned into a mini-marathon.

I don't know if this actually came from Mike Sussman(Executive Producer) or not but this is what he posted on his twitter account a short time ago....

I hope that's true. I'd miss this show terribly if it were cancelled.

This blows. It's on at 11pm on Sundays in the DC area. What kind of ratings did they expect in that time slot? Maybe they should've paired it with Smallville instead of showing reruns at 9pm on Friday nights.

It's not a CW show. It's a syndicated show like Hercules, Xena, Star Trek: TNG, Star Trek: DS9, etc.... The local station (regardless of network) decides when and where to run it. In my area it runs on Saturdays at 8 pm on the local station and Sunday afternoon on WGN.

Re: 'Legend of the Seek' Cancelled.

Word is that there has not been an "official" announcement yet. Its just speculation so there may still be hope.

If they can put it on ABC Family Channel, I'll take it!

Ditto.

This show is a lot of fun and has great production values. It's the fantasy equivalent of Human Target in that each episode feels like a mini-movie.

Re: 'Legend of the Seek' Cancelled.

Is the show too violent and/or sexy for AFC?
