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.
