EXCLUSIVE UPDATED: This will come as a shocker to Stumptown fans. The breakout series starring Cobie Smulders, which was renewed for a second season in May, will not be going forward with the Season 2 order. The studio behind the show, ABC Signature, plans to shop it and find a new home for it, I hear.
Stumptown was part of the fall 2020 ABC schedule announced in June, slated to return to the Wednesday 10 PM slot it occupied last season. According to sources, a timing issue related to the production start delay made it impossible for the show to be ready for a fall launch when the network had scheduling needs for the 2020-21 season. As a result, the network made a decision to not move forward with the previously commissioned new season.
The series, which films in Los Angeles, had not started production and did not have a firm start date when the call not to go with Season 2 was made this week. I hear the coronavirus pandemic played a significant role in the delay, which was also related to the extra time needed to get the scripts in good shape after the series changed creative direction with a showrunner change at the end of Season 1. I hear as a result, Season 2 of Stumptown would not have been ready until April, which is the end of the broadcast season, ultimately leading to the cancellation. The cast and the crew were just notified of the decision this afternoon.
The first season of Stumptown averaged a 0.49 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.84 million viewers. Stumptown was one of the lower-rated ABC TV shows in traditional ratings but it did well in delayed viewing.
Stumptown, the new crime, drama TV series from ABC premiered on the 25th of September 2019. The series is filled with tracks from word class performers like Neil Diamond, Lyn Collins, and Tiffany. You can check out and listen to the complete list of credited songs and the season 1 soundtrack below.
In season 1, Dex tackles the case of a missing girl, tracks down an escaped prisoner facing the death sentence, traces a dangerous stalker, and helps a struggling writer, among others. In season 2, we expect Dex to solve a bunch of similarly gripping crime cases.
Cobie Smulders, Jake Johnson, Michael Ealy, Adrian Martinez, Camryn Manheim and Cole Sibus catch you up on the events of Stumptown season one thus far. Watch the show Wednesdays on ABC.
