A few days ago, ABC dropped the bomb on “Last Resort” and “666 Park Avenue,” sending both of those freshmen dramas to an early grave.
Almost immediately after the cancellation broke, “Last Resort” co-creator Shawn Ryan took to twitter and wrote “We will film and and air all 13 episodes. We're going to give you [a] no-holds barred kick-ass ending.”
And it seems that Ryan wasn’t kidding. According to TVLine, the cancellation happened soon enough that the “Last Resort” creative team will be able wrap up the series’ storylines by the final episode... which effectively makes it a 13 hour miniseries.
Ryan has previously closed out “Terriers” and “The Chicago Code” after 13 episodes, giving a worthy send off to both of those prematurely cancelled TV series.
Fans of “666 Park Avenue” will also be able to see that series get a true final episode. Executive producers, David Wilcox and Matt Miller said that the creative team “is building to a powerful and surprising series finale, where all your questions will be answered. We hope fans of the show continue watching all the way to the end of Jane and Henry’s incredible journey to the dark side.”
The TVLine report notes that “666 Park Avenue” picked up an astonishingly high 77 percent of viewers on DVR. But ABC President Paul Lee shot down hopes of a reprieve when he said “It’s wonderful to see the passion [these] shows have. We just have to make sure we monetize it.”
