The ABC crime drama Stumptown will not be moving forward with season two.
The crime series, which stars Cobie Smulders as a private investigator, has been canceled due to the ongoing global pandemic despite being renewed for a second season earlier this year. The studio behind the series, ABC Signature, plans to find a new home for the show at another outlet.
Deadline reported that production delays caused by the ongoing global health concerns played a major role in the show’s cancellation and timing issues made it challenging for its second season to premiere in the fall as previously planned.
Stumptown joins Netflix’s list of canceled shows due to pandemic-related issues which include The Society and I Am Not Okay With This.
“We’ve made the difficult decision not to move forward with second seasons of The Society and I Am Not Okay With This,” Netflix said in a statement last month.
“We’re disappointed to have to make these decisions due to circumstances created by COVID, and we are grateful to these creators, including: Jonathan Entwistle, Christy Hall, Shawn Levy, Dan Levine, Dan Cohen and Josh Barry at 21 Laps Entertainment for I Am Not Okay With This; Chris Keyser, Marc Webb and Pavlina Hatoupis for The Society; and all the writers, casts, and crews who worked tirelessly to make these shows for our members around the world.”
