View Full Version : canceled or end?
Was the Wonder Years canceled or did it end? Im not sure. I know it lasted six seasons, so that makes me curious. Did it get canceled or did it decide to end after only 6 seasons?

Canceled, unfortunately and in my opinion a bad move by ABC but anyway..that's why they jump right to the last scene because they didn't know whether they'd be cancelled or not.

I'd have to say Madness, just from my view, that every show gets canceled. Hardly ever is it a group decision by producers and cast who say "I think we should go." The only times I've really heard of that is when Danson called off "Cheers", and Jerry ended "Seinfeld". From the stuff I've read the last 10 years or so, whenever a show is canceled, the producers get fair warning they they aren't going to be picked up for the fall, and are given a chance to give finality to the characters. A recent case where that didn't happen was with "Married...with Children". They had completed their most recent season and then learned during the summer they weren't coming back, so the show wasn't given a proper send-off. But most of the time they are alerted.

Supposedly, what I heard was that they thought they were going to continue at least another season--and that's why the ending is about 3-4 minutes long. So, in reality...they had time to give it a ending of sorts. They tied it in nicely though. It's one of my favorites.

Good, point, Madness, I never really thought about that in the 4th of July scene. That they shot a lot of footage so that they could end the year or have Stern dub over comments about what happens in the future.

A very bad move by ABC indeed! The show should have gone on at least ten (yes, 10!) more seasons! What was ABC thinking? The show had the potential to rise to #1 in the Nielsen ratings!
