Fox Cancels Five Series: Two Comedies and Three Dramas

May 11, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Fox has announced that five series will not return to the network next season: two comedies and three dramas, according to Deadline.com

The two comedies that have been canceled are "Breaking In" and "Traffic Light."

The three dramas that have been canceled are "Lie to Me," ‘Human Target" and "Chicago Code."

According to the story, "While ‘Human Target’ and ‘Lie To Me’ had been long shots after soft second- and third-season runs and ‘Chicago Code’ and ‘Traffic Light’s’ fate had been sealed for awhile, especially with ‘Chicago Code’ creator Shawn Ryan moving from 20th TV to Sony, the yanking of ‘Breaking In’ was very surprising as the comedy launched strong behind ‘American Idol,’ posting Fox’s highest ratings for live-action comedy series in 3 years. It has since slipped but was considered a solid contender for renewal…"
