With the months-long WGA walkout wanting set for imminent resolve, Starz is getting forward of the inevitable post-strike culling. The community has canceled 4 authentic collection — together with one which had but to even air.
On the block are wrestling drama Heels, comedy Run the World and dramedy Blindspotting, every of which not too long ago aired its second season. Moreover, drama The Venery of Samantha Fowl is not going to resume manufacturing after stopping, mid first season, when the WGA strike started in Might.
Dropping 4 collection without delay just isn’t a minor transfer for the cable community. Starz not too long ago introduced an finish date for longtime hit Outlander, which can go away the channel and its sister streamer largely reliant on the enduring Energy spinoffs and a handful of different packages like horror comedy Shining Vale.
The departing collection had no lack of star energy behind them. Heels (starring Stephen Amell) got here from former Loki head author Michael Waldron, Run the World was produced by Yvette Lee Bowser and Blindspotting counted Daveed Diggs as co-creator. The Venery of Samantha Fowl was to star 13 Causes Why alum Katherine Langford.
Although Starz didn’t touch upon the destiny of the 4 collection, a supply confirmed the information to The Hollywood Reporter after it first being reported by Selection.
