There are lots of emails, tweets and forum postings flying around today regarding the status of Legend of the Seeker.
Earlier today (Monday) Entertainment Weekly reporter Michael Ausiello posted the following on his blog…
Legend of the Seeker Canceled
Hey, fans of Legend of the Seeker: You know that 11th hour stay of execution you were hoping for? Well, you can stop hoping now — I’m hearing from multiple sources that the cult fave has been axed.
The outlook had been bleak since last March, when many of Tribune Station Group’s markets dropped the syndicated series, which had been developed from Terry Goodkind’s fantasy novels by Hercules/Xena producers Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert. ABC Studios, which produces it, kept shopping it around. But, I’m told, they found no takers. So, after two action-packed seasons, Legend is history.
Michael Ausiello is a very well respected and popular entertainment industry reporter who is usually accurate with his news items. However, please keep in mind that until we hear something official from ABC/Disney this report is just a well substantiated rumor.
We will be recording our regular weekly podcast later tonight and like most of you we’re waiting to find out exactly where things stand.
