Girlfriends Cancelled

Published: Tuesday 12th Feb 2008 by Sam
It is being reported that popular CW show Girlfriends has been cancelled aprubtly. Check out the report via EUR Web:

We hear from a source within the “Girlfriends” writing camp that the CW has decided to cancel the series immediately instead of bringing it back for a ninth season.

While no official announcement had been made as of press time, we were told the CW will not even film this season’s remaining nine episodes that were suspended during the writer’s strike.

Ironically, news of the show’s cancellation comes just as the strike has ended and the writing staff was preparing to return to work. We were informed by one of the writers yesterday that Monday night’s one-hour block of new episodes served as the show’s last.

“Girlfriends” became the longest-running live-action comedy series currently on network television with the debut of its current season in October 2007. The writers strike suspended production after only 13 of 22 ordered episodes were completed.

The series, created by Mara Brock-Akil, was consistently the No. 1 show in black households since its Sept. 11, 2000 debut. Original cast members Tracee Ellis Ross, Golden Brooks, Persia White and Jill Marie Jones starred as a group of close friends dealing with life and love in Los Angeles. Jones left the series in at the end of Season 6.

Granted the show was never the same after Toni (played by Jill Marie Jones) left, it’s kinda wrong for the show to be dropped just like that. No finale, come on now. What’s with all the black shows disappearing, without any real replacements?

Any thoughts?

    Well I have not watched the show since Toni left. Actually, after she left the show it seems like it would be boring. Also, there is more competition for their monday night spot with VH1 and the network that has “The Game” on it

    S*** i thought they stopped making it years ago. I guess it wasnt worth watching after Toni left. But saying that i think there alot more shows that incorporate black and white ways of life and people. What im tryna say is theres not as much need to have black shows and white shows. Xept those california shows. They’re abit too white!
