If CBS had already announced the renewal of several of its series during March-April, the American network still had some decisions to make. With the Upfronts and program schedules for next season unveiled, it stands to reason that CBS must also reveal what future the channel has in store for its still-uncertain series.
This is how CBS reveals that Lola Carmichael’s court is closing its doors, with the cancellation of All Rise which will not return for a season 3. The judicial series that brings us into the lives of those who navigate the justice system of Los Angeles, attracted an average of 4 million viewers (on its first day of airing), taking a 27% loss from its first season. All Rise was then in eleventh place (out of 14) in the CBS series rankings (and twelfth on target demographic). Its final episode will therefore be broadcast on Monday, May 24.
Likewise, Wade Felton will not be reunited next season, with CBS also announcing the cancellation of The Unicorn after two seasons. This scripted single-camera comedy stars Walton Goggins as a widowed father of two who decides to start dating again and quickly realizes he’s in high demand.
It’s also no secret what led to the cancellation of this comedy, which is just not profitable. She is not helped by the fact that, unlike a drama which can make up for its poor ratings with excellent international sales, comedies do not export well. Despite a suggestion from the producers to relocate the production in an attempt to cut the budget, CBS chose not to proceed. On March 18, the last episode was released.
Note that CBS has in parallel announced the renewal of two comedies, namely B Positive and the United States of Al. The American network has yet to formalize the fate of Clarice, as well as that of SEAL Team, both could continue on Paramount + according to the rumors.
