    My teenage son and I really enjoyed this show. So sad it’s not coming back.

  5. Doug Turner says:

    This is a bad decision ! This series had suspense, action, romance and humour. It’s way better than most of the series renewed. Smarten up !

  9. MaryAnn McGreal says:

    I loved King and Maxwell..So sorry to see it go. Jon Tenny aka Fritzie..glad o see is joining Major Crimes.

  10. Dianna says:

    Everytime something decent w/o vampires comes on it is cancelled. How sad, they avg. 3.1 m viewers, so what do they want? The networks do not care about viewers! If they did then they should know that 3.1 m viewers are now extremely upset. What about it TNT?

  11. Dallas says:

    I am not happy at all, I loved that program just like my mom did and a co-worker. I have even read the David Baldacci’s book on them. I do hope there is a possibility of coming back.
