Legend of the Seeker canceled?; Tribune will not syndicate third season

Update: Mike Sussman, One of the writers of Legend of the Seeker, wrote on his Twitter account that the series has NOT been canceled.  Details here.

Original article follows below.

This surprises me.  It’s always difficult to gauge if a syndicated series is performing strongly enough to be renewed, but I assumed the audience level for Legend of the Seeker (2.42 million viewers through 12 episodes) was enough to warrant a renewal.  Well, apparently the ratings weren’t strong enough:

A representative from the Tribune Company is now saying that Legend of the Seeker will not be renewed for a third season.

When e-mailed for comment by KSiteTV and by others, this is what he said:

Dear Craig,

Thanks for your email and for your support of the show. Unfortunately, not enough viewers felt the same way as you and “Seeker’s” ratings do not merit renewing it. I’m sorry.

Gary Weitman
SVP/Corporate Relations
Tribune Company

TV by the Numbers followed up with Tribune and received confirmation that they will not renew the show for a third season due to low ratings:

I contacted Mr. Weitman who was extremely responsive and sensitive to the plight of the fans, but confirmed that the ratings did not merit Tribune sticking with it for a 3rd season.

It’s too early to say whether ABC Domestic Television (the show is produced by ABC Studios) will seek to syndicate it with another company.

    Let’s hope there is a season 3. People need to watch this show–I love this show and would hate to see it go away. Until I hear it’s canceled, I’m assuming it’s still a go. There are other stations that can air it, not just Tribune. At least, I hope so!
