With all the times that ABC has moved Men in Trees around, this has been the one question that keeps being asked. Previous posts here at TVaholic answering whether or not Men in Trees has been cancelled still bring people to the site everyday. Especially, when ABC has seen fit to pull or move the show. Like they did again here recently.
Happily, the answer, up until now, has always been no, but that is no longer the case. Sadly, ABC has decided to cancel Men in Trees. I just sat down at my computer after watching Brothers & Sisters and read that Men in Trees has been cancelled.
It will, however, return to finish off this season on May 28th, as it was previously scheduled to do. Creator Jenny Bicks saw the possible writing on the wall and created an alternate ending for the season that will give fans a fitting conclusion and act as the series finale. So, at least there’s that.
Men in Trees was one of the most fun shows on TV. It had the quirky characters, the touching storylines and the great mix of comedy and drama that always made for an enjoyable hour. But, alas it will be no more. We will have to say goodbye to our favorite residents of Elmo, Alaska.
It is really too bad, as I thought it would actually make a good Monday night offering, between seasons of The Bachelor. Especially, with networks looking at going to a more year round programming schedule. Actually, if they would have just left it on Friday nights and not moved it all over the schedule or pulled it for long stretches of time, it would probably be doing just fine.
