The Cursed Series Cancellation Meltdown

Some power users here at are going to be really disappointed. ABC Family’s The Middleman, a consistent favorite of some of’s most dedicated users, will not be picked up for a second season. In a press release sent out by ABC Family, the network revealed that the series finale will be made into a graphic novel, dooming the television series.

The graphic novel finale will send The Middleman back to its roots; the show is based on a series of comics created by Javier Grillo-Marxuach (Lost), who also birthed the television series.


The Middleman launched on ABC Family in June, and ran for 12 episodes (the unproduced 13th episode serves as the source for the final graphic novel).

Because profanity cheapens the soul and weakens the mind, my variety of words is pretty much limited right now…

No more BTTF references from these two. :(

Another actually creative and inspired show goes down the drain, long before its deserved run was really over. Come on. Mexican wrestlers in masks?!? Who can even come up with such stuff? A handful of people maybe.
I hope the comic is at least written by this show’s staff.
