It turns out ABC’s Forever will not be living up to its name.
After only one season, the supernatural drama — about a New York City medical examiner named Dr. Henry Morgan who who has been dying and coming back to life for the past 200 years — got the axe on Thursday.
The news was first made public, rather heartbreakingly, on Twitter by Alice Evans, the wife of star Ioan Gruffudd:
UPDATE: Gruffudd offered his own thoughts on the cancellation via Instagram early Friday morning. “I knew the numbers hadn’t been great, but I also knew the studio and the network both loved the show, and of course that it had an incredible fan base… so I thought we were in with a pretty good chance,” he wrote, adding that he was grateful for “a chance to play the role of my dreams, even if it was only for a year. To have been given the chance to bring Henry to life.”
TVLine’s renewal scorecard has been updated to reflect the news.
