Report: ABC May Exhume Body of Proof

Body of Proof Renewed Season 4Rigor mortis perhaps hasn’t quite set in with Body of Proof.

With Lucky 7 already cashed out and its other non-S.H.I.E.L.D. freshman dramas struggling, ABC may resurrect the cancelled procedural, our sister site Deadline reports.

Talks of the possible plucking-from-the-ashes are said to have started at the start of this TV season, and a final decision could come within the next month, as the likes of Betrayal and Wonderland either stabilize (or even rise), or slide further.

At this stage, it’s unclear who all — Dana Delany? Mark Valley? Gravedigger Michael Ausiello? — could be brought back for any possible Season 4.

Body of Proof, during its rejiggered third season, averaged 10.4 million total viewers and a 1.9 demo rating, with its out-of-season finale drawing 7.6 mil/1.2.

Wonderland with its second telecast dropped to 4.5 mil and a 1.2, while Betrayal this Sunday ticked up to 3.6 mil and a 0.9. Scandal repeats currently filling the Tuesdays-at-10 void aka BOP‘s old home have averaged about 2.8 mil and a 0.8.

Would you like to see Body of Proof back on your telly?

  • I love Body of Proof and want it back!! Stop creating stupid realty shows and keep Castle, Revenge, and Agents of Shield coming. I do agree that cops from season one need to be returned Body of Proof.

  • Yes bring Body of Proof back. I never missed an episode. It’s well eritten & well acted. Humor mixed with drama. Excellent show. But the goons usually choose incotrectly so never seeing it again won’t shock me. They’ll judt replace it with some BS reality crap.

  • I liked body of proof when it first came out. However, after the second season, I found it unbearable. By making the main character even colder and the blond boss lady ‘stand her ground’ in a cool and sexy manner,they killed it for me. I tried to watch season three, but finally had to give up. It was awful. I am not sorry I have since forgotten all the character’s names already.

  • I never watched BOP on live television, but just finished watching all 3 Seasons of the DVD’s. It is a great show. My family is shocked that such a great show would be cancelled, but there have been lots of them that had been in the past. Such a shame when there is so much garbage on TV.

  • Great entertainment, sorry if you “yanks” find it boring but as a “Brit” I find it a great release from everyday life. Megan’s professional confidence along with her personal insecurities reflects a reality in real life and draws viewers into her attempts to balance her life. Please don’t kill it off yet, I’m sure the series has the potential to appeal to a wider and more dedicated audience.

  • I watched every episode of BOP and was shocked that it was cancelled. This is a great tv series that has everything and it would be great to bring it back. Dana DeLaney is a fantastic actress. Jeri Ryan and Valey all great.
