"The Big C" has received a renewal from Showtime for a final season, but its extremely short order raises the question whether Laura Linney’s character will succumb to cancer, reports TVLine.com.
The order for the show’s fourth season consists of only four one-hour episodes, the story notes.
Asked whether the show will conclude with Cathy’s death, Showtime President David Nevins replied, "I wouldn’t assume anything about how it’s going to end. They have a very interesting, novel and form-breaking way to handle where the show is going.”
Showtime hasn’t announced when the final episodes will air, the story says. Nevins spoke at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour.
