Deadline brings word that ABC has canceled 50 Cent’s television series, For Life, after two seasons due to low ratings. Isaac Wright Jr’s story inspired the show. One of the cast members, Nicholas Pinnock, voiced that he holds no grudges against the television network for not renewing the show. In fact, he backed up their decision, saying that For Life wasn’t ideal for their audience.
He wrote on Twitter,
I am in no way bitter with ABC for not renewing For Life for a third season. ABC has been nothing but supportive of our show, and has championed it from the start. So I won’t have you bad-mouthing them. I can tell you firsthand how great they have been to me and to our show. Sadly, the live audience numbers didn’t reflect and equal the social media attention,” he continued. “The catch-up numbers were really good, but that doesn’t fit the model of a network show.
Sony Pictures TV is expected to find a new home for the show so it can continue.
