NBC CUTS “TRAUMA” TO 18, FINALE SET FOR APRIL 26
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)
LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) — NBC’s on-again, off-again relationship with “Trauma” is back to the off phase.
The Peacock has confirmed the series will now wrap its season on Monday, April 26 at 9:00/8:00c.
Production was halted after 18 episodes, two shy of its planned 20-episode commitment.
Repeats of “Law & Order” will fill the Monday, 9:00/8:00c hour on May 3 and May 10 – “Trauma’s” original finale date.
This is just awful news. This has become one of my favorite shows, and now it’s being canceled. The worst part of it is that there is no word yet if the producers adapted episode 18 so that it could serve as a series finale or if viewers will be left hanging. Stupid stupid stupid.
The cast that includes Derek Luke, Cliff Curtis, Anastasia Griffith, Kevin Rankin, Aimee Garcia, Billy Lush, Jamey Sheridan, and Taylor Kinney has just been superb.
