Rosewood canceled by Fox after two seasons

Posted on

Rosewood is the latest victim of the broadcast ax.

Fox’s procedural drama has been canceled after two seasons.

The series delivered 4.3 million viewers and a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49 during its final season, including DVR. Though EW’s Deathwatch predictions expected Rosewood to get canceled, several other bubble dramas were considered slightly more likely to end — including fellow Fox series Scream Queens, Sleepy Hollow, and APB, all of which are still awaiting verdicts this week.

Rosewood star Morris Chestnut posted a farewell to the show on Instagram, below, thanking fans and noting that “Rosewood also helped reinforce a newer definition of Family, as a group of people who most care for and support one another. The Rosewood family, itself was an Extremely Special group of people who’ll be friends forever.”

I am very grateful about the part that everyone took in Rosewood's journey, because everyone was truly an integral part; the writers who crafted great story-lines, the actors who brought these stories to life, the production crew who sustained the show's infrastructure, and the terrific fans who embraced this phenomenon and became just as much a part of Rosewood as anyone else. FOX provided a platform for a show that made strides in diversity and the positive images it projected as all-inclusive. We were able to peer into the lives of characters who displayed their hopes, dreams, courage and fears. Rosewood also helped reinforce a newer definition of Family, as a group of people who most care for and support one another. The #Rosewood family, itself was an Extremely Special group of people who’ll be friends forever. This is not only a part of the industry, it's a part of life. When one door closes, two more can open… Thank you all for your continued #onelove and support. See you back on the screen, soon. Big and Small. #PEACE – MC
