No Back Order For CW's Life Unexpected

Life Unexpected cast members Kerr Smith, Brittany Robertson, Shiri Appleby and Kristoffer Polaha

It will be an abbreviated second (and probably final) season for the CW’s drama Life Unexpected after the network today decided not to order additional episodes beyond the show’s original 13-episode order.

The writing has been on the wall: Despite critical praise, LUX has been the the lowest-rated series on The CW this fall and was the only series with a 13-episode order not to receive a back order from the network 10 days ago when freshmen Nikita and Hellcats and veteran One Tree Hill received full-season pickups. In contrast, LUX, which stars Brittany Robertson, Shiri Appleby and Kristoffer Polaha, had only been given a pickup for two additional scripts.

While the CW is putting off the final decision on LUX until May, the January season finale will likely serve as a series finale. It seems like the show’s writers are treating it that way — I hear last the episode will resolve many of the storylines on the show to give fans a satisfying finale.

    I love this little show. I think it has so much potential, but in reality – its on the wrong network. CW seems to have a very different demographic. I wish it was on ABC FAMILY, because it would have a much better audience tuning in. It’s akin to Parenthood, which I really enjoy, too. I had hoped it wasn’t true – but the writing is on the wall and the last two episodes are about to happen. Fortunately, Liz Tigelaar just signed a new deal with ABC STUDIOS and she’ll have some elbow room to be creative and come out swinging with a whole new show pretty soon. I’m sure we will fall in love with the new characters and be back to tweet sessions, boxed wine and three-legged turtles named Bolt.
