What happened to ABC fall show "Defying Gravity"

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if it was cancelled for good or can we find the rest of the episodes online or something? I know there were 13 episodes filmed. I was curious if it is coming back or not.

Although ABC claimed they weren't canceling it when they pulled it from their schedule, claiming they would eventually find a timeslot for it and air the remaining episodes, they have not done so thus far, and it's pretty much a given that they never will.

Although often credited as a product of ABC (its official site is considered the ABC Web site), the space drama actually is an internationally developed television series and is produced by the BBC in conjunction with Fox Television Studios and Omni Film Productions. The production is being carried out in association with the Canadian CTV and Space networks, meaning that even if ABC choose to ax the show, the series could conceivably continue without their support.

However, without ABC's involvement, such a move would become more and more unlikely unless another American suitor is found.

The Canadian and U.K. scheduling of the show is not expected to be affected by the ABC re-scheduling.
