Memphis Beat: Canceled!

by at . Comments

TNT will not be revisiting Jason Lee and the southern precinct of Memphis Beat again: the network has canceled this drama after two seasons on the air.

“The network thanks everyone involved in the production of Memphis Beat for their work on the series, including the great cast and crew,” TNT said statement this afternoon.

This cancelation follows a similar fate for TNT's Men of a Certain Age and HawthoRNe, although the network does have a string of hits.

Rizzoli & Isles and Falling Skies fared very well this summer, while a second season of Franklin & Bash was ordered and The Closer returns on November 28.

    I speak for myself my husband and many family friends. This show rocked in evry aspect, many other shows should have taken its place. ie "The Closer" Franklin & Bash. But I guess there were not enough intense or perverse actions on Memphis Beat for the Network. 90% of the time you keep the worse shows.


    why is it everytime a good show comes on you guys cancell it i love this show bring it back please


    My favorite show ! What a terrible idea to cancel it. Do you care at all what viewers want ?


    One of the few shows my wife and I love and DVR. Bad move TNT.


    I love the show l am happy to see l go want the show back jacon lee was the best as well as witt


    HOW CAN THEY CANCEL MEMPHIS BEAT! Great characters, good stories, terrific music. Oh, but they kept the nonsensical, Boston Legal wannabe Franklin and Bash????


    Memphis Beat was one of the reasons I watch TNT. If you're going to cancel shows consider Franklin and Bash. Jason Lee was great and Mo Keb's music was wonderful. Can we start a fan campaign and convince the network to bring it back? Or perhaps another network will snatch it up.


    I enjoyed Memphis Beat and looked forward to each episode. Hope that TNT reconsiders canceling the show.


    NOOOOOOO. how can they do that!!! i can give them other shows to cancel and bring back memphis beat. what can be done to bring it back?


    Do any of you guys care what the viewers want? Maybe you should ask us before you make decisions that concern us. Memphis Beat was my "look forward to" show. Please bring it back.
