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
