We often take TV shows that do well very much granted. Today o heard on Twitter that people want Grey’s Anatomy to end. My question to them would be really, seriously if that happens you will be in a room crying mark my words. The show might frustrate you, not give you happy endings. But mark my words- if it finishes your heart will break into a hundred pieces. At least your high rated show does not force you to literally convince a brand to sponsor your show ( Chuck ), go on Social Media and wait with bated breath that some other network picks it up ( Lucifer ) or be on the edge for an entire year just listening to news and reports that it can come back ( Last Man Standing ).
But sometimes even if the show does super well it comes with an expiry date. The storylines could just stretch this much only. It sadly happened with Hawaii Five O which will end after 10 seasons. It will air its last episode on April 3rd and end its run after 240 successful episodes .
It gave network steady rating and became one of the few shows to defy the Friday night death slot. It worked well for CBS, these 10 years .Thisseries also did very well on syndication earning CBS a huge amount through their deal to re air the episodes with TNT.But unfortunately, the network a few days ago came to the conclusion that they wanted to pull the plug.
“It’s never easy to say goodbye to a hit franchise that carried on the legacy of the original with such distinction while establishing its own signature style,” said Kelly Kahl, President, CBS Entertainment. “From episode one, Hawaii Five-0 has been a huge success for us. Thanks to the amazing talents of the producers, writers, cast and crew, it has played a key role for a decade on our schedule and helped establish our powerhouse Friday night. We cannot be prouder of its quality, longevity and are thankful for the passionate fan-devotion it inspired.”
The viewers were extremely sad and expressed it in Social media. Every one is right now basically on the look out if some other network goes ahead with it.
The series was developed by Peter M. Lenkov, Alex Kurtzman, and Roberto Orci, and Lenkov served as showrunner for all 10 seasons.
