Telenovela Cancelled

Telenovela Cancelled at NBC

That’s a wrap on Telenovela.

NBC has cancelled the Eva Longoria-starring comedy after one season, TVLine has confirmed.

The low-rated series featured the Desperate Housewives alumna as the star of a Spanish-language soap.

As the broadcast networks’ annual Upfronts Week nears, the fate of the last remaining “bubble” shows will be determined, as ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and The CW get ready to reveal their schedules for the 2016-17 TV season. For easy reference, TVLine’s handy Renewal Scorecard keeps tabs of where each show stands, while our network-by-network Pilot Season Guide lists all of the new comedies and dramas up for consideration — some of which (including NBC’s Chicago Justice) have already been ordered to series.

During Upfronts Week, the broadcast networks take turns announcing and touting their shows and stars for the fall and midseason. NBC and Fox are up first, delivering their respective morning and afternoon presentations on Monday, May 16, followed by ABC (on Tuesday, May 17), CBS (Wednesday, May 18) and The CW (Thursday, May 19).

As Upfronts Week unfolds, TVLine will share the first trailers and photos for all of the new series, as well as continually update our Fall TV Grid, letting you know what will be on when, and opposite what (as well as denote what is being held for midseason).

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Thank goodness! This was one of the worst shows on TV.

  4. Kels says:

    I enjoyed this show. It wasn’t the most brilliant ever but it was light and fun. I’m not surprised by this decision but I am disappointed.

    I enjoyed telenovela it was sort of mindless trash but sometimes you want a show you can watch without thinking to much about it a really shame that it won’t get a second season

  9. Annie says:

    just crossing my fingers for Undateable!!

  10. DV says:

    I had really high hopes for this show and could never get into it. Hopefully she finds the right vehicle because she is really funny!

  11. B says:

    Started watching late in the season and found it pretty fun — just light and enjoyable. Sorry to hear it’s gone.

  12. Good. Now give Grimm a full bl***y season 6!!!!! :D

  14. prissy says:

    It was a bad show, i only watched because the gorgeous Eva was on it

  15. erica says:

    Ooohhhh, Telenovela was laugh out loud funny

  16. Regina says:

    Well bummer. I’ve been waiting for news on this one for a while. I thought the show was funny and light and the cast was great.

  17. ScottJ says:

    Disappointing but not surprising. Ratings were practically at the bottom of a well.

  18. Allison Barbieri says:

    Well that sucks. I thought it was hilarious, campy and clever. Eva Longoria was awesome in her role. .so funny!

  19. Carla Krae says:

    Bummer. Made us laugh. I like silly when I want silly.

  20. Chris says:

    I LOVED Telenovela, it was hilarious!!! It’s nice to see someone Beautiful and Funny all combined in one, like Eva Longoria!! I have been waiting for the second season, please DON’T cancel this show!!! I even watched the reruns, just so I could laugh over and over!!!!

  21. Chloe says:

    The scripts weren’t that great but the cast was really good. I was hoping it would be renewed.

  22. This show was horrendous, Eva deserves better.

  23. That’s too bad, I liked this show. I liked it better than Superstore; I thought it was stupid and couldn’t get into the characters at all. On the flip side, I thought Telenovela flowed better and while the humor was more silly, it was entertaining.

  24. Kianta Perez says:

    THIS WAS ONE OF THE BEST SHOWS ON TV ALWAYS MADE ME LAUGH ITS A GREAT SHOW WITH MEANING THAT SHOW LATIN PEOPLE WHO DON’T SPEAK SPANISH THAT THEY SHOULD STILL BE PROUD OF THEIR LATIN CULTURE EVEN THOUGH THEY DON’T SPEAK THE LANGUAGE

  25. matty says:

    Not a big surprise, but I really liked it. I think Longoria is better at comedy than she is drama and she’ll probably find a sitcom that suits her better than this one did.

  26. Dan Jaenicke says:

    I really liked Telanovela. I didnt yhink I would. Watched once and DVR’d the series. My wife and I watched them all. Sad to see it go. Maybe another network could buy. Great cast chemistry!

  27. Sandy says:

    This was a great show. LOL classic comedy. I’m not surprised it was cancelled. Hey CBS, ABC, Fox time to step in and pick up this gem. Do some actual marketing and this sleeper will flourish!

  28. Diana says:

    No why!!! I like this show it made me laugh!! I’m so sad now. Please make season 2 🙏🏼

  29. Angel says:

    Once I started watching the show on Hulu I couldn’t stop! I’m so sad it’s gone.. it needs to come back!

  30. Leo says:

    What a shame, the show was hysterical!

  31. Cindy Wellons says:

    I loved this show. I wonder if the networks monitor which shows are watched on airplanes. That is how I fell in love with this show. I loved watching it on my trips from Atlanta to LAX. It shows work place relationships & friendships. It showed neat backstage things. I’m so sad that this is cancelled.

  32. LISSETTE NAVAS says:

    I cannot believe they are canceling Telenovela. It is hysterical. I hope netflix or hulu picks it up because it is refreshing, lighthearted and funny. Eva Langoria and the rest of the cast have such a great chemistry and its a shame that NBC does not see that.

  33. Elsa says:

    I loved this show how could they have cancelled it??? 😞 The actors were funny and played their characters really well!!! Is there another network that could possibly pick it up???

  34. Lacey says:

    I loved telenovela think it stupid of you to cancel it I though was really funny great writing and casting

  35. Jaime says:

    That was a really bad show!!! Thanks god!
