Official: NBC Cancels Damian Lewis’ Life

Well it’s pretty much official, even though NBC has yet to send out a press release saying it’s official, but Michael Ausiello over at EW recently came back from NBC’s infront presentation and is confirming that Damian Lewis, Sarah Shahi, and the gang over at the Life TV show will not be back for a third season. Such is the sad state of TV nowadays that you can have fifty exact Law and Order and CSI clones on the air at once, but for some reason there is no room for a cop show as cool, quirky, and fun as Life. Stupid networks. Stupid TV watchers. Ugh.

I don’t have much to say, except that I’ll miss Life. I’ll miss the very hot Dani Reese and her myriad of family issues, and I’ll miss Charlie Crews and his pseudo Zen nonsense. It was a great show, but we can at least be thankful that the producers sorta knew the show might not return for a third season, so they did do us a favor by wrapping up most, if not all of the show’s hanging plot threads in the Season 2 finale.

So, Life is gone. It was fun while it lasted. Here’s a look back at a great crime show that never got much of a chance. Too bad they didn’t call it CSI: Life. The stupid TV audience might have tuned in, then.
