A police procedural airing on broadcast got word that it won’t be back for a third season. Announcing Fox’s cancellation of “Rosewood,” the show’s star Morris Chestnut posted a message on Instagram, writing: “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.”
The cancellation is the second by Fox in recent weeks, coming on the heels of the axing of “Pitch.”
TVbytheNumbers.com notes that the cancellation came 10 days after “Rosewood” wrapped up its second season. “Season 2 suffered a sizable ratings drop after the show moved away from the pre-‘Empire’ spot on Wednesday night to Thursday and, eventually, Friday nights,” the report notes.
TVbytheNumbers adds: “’Rosewood’ averaged a 0.7 rating among adults 18-49 and 3.03 million viewers on the night it aired this season. It was down steep 46 percent in the 18-49 demo and nearly 37 percent in viewers vs. 2015-16.”
Created by Todd Harthan, the series also starred Jaina Lee Ortiz, Gabrielle Dennis and Anna Konkle.
