Report: ABC chops down Trees

  • 67comments

It's nail-biting time for those in television because new schedules for the major networks will be announced soon, effectively putting some in the business in the unemployment line.

Even with formal announcements yet to come, a few nuggets leak out before networks bow down to cash-flush advertisers and reveal their final fall schedules.

The latest to get premature bad news is ABC's Men in Trees, as reported by TVGuide.com. Show runner Jenny Bicks confirmed to the site that her show will be canceled after the conclusion of its second season.

Bicks says that the show's ever-changing schedule--moving around from night to night--didn't help Men in Trees' chances. "No show could survive that," she told TVGuide.com.

Fans won't be left with many cliffhangers or dangling storylines that were anticipating a third season; Bicks and her crew prepared an alternate-ending series finale just in case the worst happened. The series is scheduled to return on May 28 with its final run of episodes.

Men in Trees stars Anne Heche, James Tupper, and John Amos as citizens of a small Alaska town who deal with all the drama that life throws at them. For more on the show, read TV.com's previous coverage.
