Why was Blue Thunder cancelled?

Blue Thunder is an American action drama television series based on the film of the same name, which ran on ABC from January 6, 1984, to April 16, 1984, and featured the Blue Thunder chopper. The show was canceled by ABC due to low ratings. Before the series was discontinued, eleven episodes were produced.

The story follows a young Army helicopter pilot named Jack Briggs (played by Scott Wilson) who finds himself caught in the middle of a conflict between two rival drug cartels when his helicopter is stolen and he is forced to use it to compete against the thief in a race across America. Although initially opposed to using his helicopter for such purposes, Briggs decides to enter the race to save his own life after being told that if he does not finish the race within 24 hours of having been kidnapped, someone will be killed.

During its short run, the show received mixed reviews from critics but was praised for its action scenes and cast members' performances. However, its low ratings caused ABC to cancel the series before it could find a new home.

In August 2009, Disney announced that it had ordered a third season of the show, which premiered on January 6, 2010.

It was canceled after its second season due to low ratings. However, in October 2010, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Disney was interested in bringing back the series for another season. No further news has emerged since then.

Was Blue Bloods Cancelled?

A few CBS procedural programs are not going away. Blue Bloods (for Season 12), S.W.A.T. (for Season 5), NCIS (for Season 19), Bull (for Season 6), and Magnum P.I. (for Season 4) were all renewed for the 2021–2022 season by the network on April 15.

Blue Bloods was originally intended to be the series' last season but it turned out to be just a rumor. When asked if the series would be returning for another season, co-executive producer Barry Goldberg said: "Nothing has been decided at this point." However, in 2018, it was reported that the show had been renewed for an 18th season.

Did you know...? Blue Bloods has been nominated for an Emmy Award every year since its creation in 1997 except for 1998 when it was unable to compete due to NFL season canceling.

S.W.A.T. was supposed to come to an end after Season 8 but instead, it was announced that there will be a ninth season coming in 2020. The same thing happened with Blue Bloods - no one expected both shows to get renewed but here we are again! Maybe they're trying to save money by not renewing any more seasons of these programs?

NCIS was also supposed to come to an end after Season 16 but instead, it was announced that there will be a 17th season coming in 2020.

Why is Blue Sky closed?

Due to "current economic realities," Blue Sky Studios is shutting. Essentially, it is stated that Disney cannot afford to keep the studio open at this time. This comes as a shock to many people because I thought Blue Sky was part of Disney.

Blue Sky produced several popular animated films over the years including: Pocahontas, Tarzan, The Lion King, Aladdin, and Mulan. These movies are very well known and have made millions of dollars for Disney.

It is believed that if Blue Sky closes, then all of its projects will be completed. This includes projects that aren't related to any of the above movies. For example, one project that was in development at Blue Sky called "Nocturna" was supposed to be an anime movie that hasn't been released yet. Another project that may not see the light of day is called "Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure." This video game was planned before the shutdown was announced so it probably won't come out.

Blue Sky also created several video games based on their movies. These include: Pocahontas, Tarzan, The Lion King, Aladdin, and Mulan.

Disney has not said what will happen to Blue Sky's current projects or where they will finish them.

Did "Blue Exorcist" get cancelled?

Why was Rookie Blue canceled?

White revealed that the program was in development for a seventh season with ABC and Global, and that both were "very pleased with the direction of this revival." Finally, White claims that the decision not to bring Rookie Blue back was "more of a commercial decision than a reflection of the creative stuff."

Rookie Blue was canceled after six seasons due to poor ratings. The show ended its run in February 2015 after filming several episodes for its seventh season.

In an interview with TV Guide, executive producer Derek Haas explained that the decision to cancel the show was a "commercial one". He added that they had hoped that the third season would be the show's last but it wasn't enough to keep the series going.

Haas also said that they planned to continue the series even after its sixth season because they wanted to give fans something to hold out hope for. However, he didn't rule out the possibility of the show returning if the ratings improved.

Rookie Blue premiered on January 25, 2012, to strong numbers from the beginning. It went on to become one of ABC's highest-rated programs for adults 18-49. The fifth season averaged 3.5 million viewers per episode, while the sixth season got lower ratings with 2.9 million viewers per episode.

After the cancellation was announced, many fans were upset by the news.
