NBC has effectively canceled JJ Abrams’ freshman drama Undercovers and will not pick up any additional episodes. The show will still air on November 10, November 17 and December 1. That takes it through 10 episodes but no dates for what will be the final three episodes have been scheduled yet.

I sincerely hope that execs don't use this as an excuse to avoid shows with POC leads.
I'm terrified they will, though.

ETA: Even more definite confirmation from Boris' twitter.
Sadface, everyone. Sadface.

For the love of--at least finish a season before you decide, networks! This cannot be a practical system. *twitch*

Also, they canceled a JJ Abram's show? After Alias and Lost? Seriously?

I still don't understand people's complaints about the show. People seem to like the formula fine when it's two white guys. But I won't get into that.

RIP, show =(

Aargh! I am so peeved by this. Our adorable, capery, gleeful, fun show. What do Leverage and Chuck have that Undercovers doesn't? FFS give the white guy Gerald McRaney or Carter McIntyre top billing and uncancel it.
