Rosewood: Canceled After Two Seasons at Fox!

at . Comments

Rosewood will not be returning for a third season at Fox. 

Series stars Jaina Lee Ortiz (Det. Annalise Villa), and Morris Chestnut (Dr. Beaumont Darius Rosewood, Jr) took to social media with their own separate posts confirming the news fans had feared the most. 

The Meaning of Family - Rosewood

"Today is a special day," Ortiz started off her statement.

"Today I say goodbye to my very first show, Rosewood. I say goodbye to Detective Annalise Villa. Damn, I'm gonna miss that woman. To my partner in crime/the guy who mentored me and showed me the ropes on set."

"The beautiful Morris Chestnut, and when I say beautiful, I mean his HEART, his SOUL. He is the most selfless person I think I've ever met. Kind and gracious. Our rock. Our captain. 5 days a week, 14 hours a day, he became one of my best-friends. Love you, Morrisito."

"The cast...you're my family. To all the hardworking crew and writers... you showed me what "movie magic" was really made out of. It's created on the backs of your hard work. Last but not least, this show and it's incredible characters were created by Todd Harthan."

Details of Her Past - Rosewood

"This guy said yes when everyone else told me, no, and it has changed my life forever. I adore you. 💙 Gotta give a shoutout to all the fans who have supported and loved us from day 1. The love you expressed via social media for the characters and the story is something we will cherish forever. Love u all! #Rosewood #Rosilla #2Seasons #grateful"

Chestnut had an equally long statement to thank the cast, crew, and fans for everything. 

"I am very grateful about the part that everyone took in Rosewood's journey, because everyone was truly an integral part; the writers who crafted great story-lines, the actors who brought these stories to life, the production crew who sustained the show's infrastructure, and the terrific fans who embraced this phenomenon and became just as much a part of Rosewood as anyone else," Morris began. 

A Complication - Rosewood

"FOX provided a platform for a show that made strides in diversity and the images it projected, as all-inclusive. We were able to peer into the lives of characters who displayed their hopes, dreams, courage and fears. Rosewood also helped reinforce a newer definition of Family, as a group of people who most care for and support one another."

"The Rosewood family, itself was an Extremely Special group of people who’ll be friends forever. This is not only a part of the industry, it's a part of life."

"When one door closes, two more can open... Thank you all for your continued #onelove and support. See you back on the screen soon. Big and Small. #PEACE - MC."

Unexpected News - Rosewood

Rosewood has never been a huge hit for Fox. It launched in September 2015 with 7.5 million viewers and a 2.4 rating. The season wound up averaging just 4.8 million viewers and a 1.3 rating. 

Season 2 fared worse and was moved to Friday nights mid-way through. It averaged just 3 million viewers and a 0.7 rating. 

The series had minimal impact when DVR ratings were factored in, so it seemed like one of the most likely Fox series to get canceled.
