The O.C. Cancelled  
I got this off of ohnotheydidnt (source: justjared).
We’ve been hearing this for many months now (perhaps longer) but word on the street is that Fox has "officially" pulled the plug on The O.C. in its fourth (and final) season. Big surprise because just yesterday, the pilot pickup season kicked off and a spy dramedy from The O.C. creator Josh Schwartz was given the green light by NBC. Josh, 30, will be delivering a high-concept action dramedy about spies (in the vein of Grosse Pointe Blank) called Chuck.

Josh will also be executive producing The Gossip Girl, which is supposedly going to be picked up by the CW. He’s going to be a busy guy, that Josh. But without The O.C. on his plate. At this point, we can only wish for great acting gigs for the cast. All of them.
Maybe, Autumn Reeser will wind up with something else that showcases her talents! (And a small part of me is still wistfully hoping that if (hah, if!) Veronica Mars is canceled, Jason Dohring and Autumn will wind up on a show together. Hey, I can dream!

ETA: Exec producer Josh Schwartz released a quote on the cancellation.
"THE O.C. Season Four finale will also be the series finale. This feels like the best time to bring the show to its close," said Josh Schwartz, creator and executive producer of THE O.C. "Thanks to the hard work of our cast, crew and writers, we have enjoyed our best season yet, and what better time to go out than creatively on top. It has been an amazing experience and a great run. For a certain audience, at a certain time, THE O.C. has meant something. For that we are grateful."

Damn! This was the first season I started watching...and I am in LOVE! I swear every show I love gets cancelled!

However if I get this
if (hah, if!) Veronica Mars is canceled, Jason Dohring and Autumn will wind up on a show together. Hey, I can dream!

I will be very happy!!

I watched the first season, was so impressed but then tuned back in this season and I'm loving it. Ah well.

Yeah, Jason and Autum! Would be pretty sweet.

I'm not really surprised, but I do wish the cast the best outside of the show.

Damn, this news is all over my f-list! It feels like a small part of me has died inside.

And damn Ryan and Taylor for being so awesome and sucking me into this show in the first place! FOX sucks. Here's to hoping the CW picks it up.

It was a rumor about the CW, but Josh Schwartz' press release (posted in the original post) pretty much put the kibosh on that.

They could always talk him into another season, couldn't they? *hopeful*

Yeah, I think I'm gonna have to admit it's over and let it go. Damn.

Yeah. Sorry.

Oh, I like the idea of Autumn and Jason. They'd be wonderful together.

If they had chemistry, yeah, it would be awesome!!

Well - at least as he said, they are going out on top and he has the knowledge in enough time to wind the series up right. I noticed on my email that the second disc of OC was on it's way to me so I'll probably keep watching till the end.

Who is this Autumn? Is she the girl playing Taylor? And is Jason's agent putting together a clip reel of all his finest moments? (hee - you know, bring it up next time you chat with him!) I will hate not seeing JD on my television.

Yeah, at least it will go out on top. And I've already decided, if the quality of the rest of the season matches the first batch of eps (minus the last one which did nothing for me), I'm going to buy this season.

Autumn plays Taylor.

As for Jason, I dunno, but there is a rumor about some movie he's looking into, but I have no other info. Crap!

The way I see it -- at least it's going out on top (creatively). :) I think I'd rather have shows do that rather than go out on top (ratings-wise).

At least we'll enjoy the eps all that more, knowing it'll be ovah after February 22. :(
Arabian: Ryan/Taylor01arabian on January 4th, 2007 09:33 pm (UTC)
Yup, I agree -- creatively over ratings.

What do you mean Feb 22? is that when the season ends this year? Is it only 13 episodes? That sucks. Pouts!
eolivet on January 4th, 2007 09:37 pm (UTC)
From my TV newsletter: New original episodes will air beginning tonight until the season finale, scheduled for February 22.

(Oh wow, they didn't even get their original 16 -- that's right!! Man, that sucks. Poor O.C... :( )

Arrrghhh!! Ah, look on the bright side ... the DVD set will be cheap! :D Gotta find something. Pout.
