If you were holding your breath hoping that someone would swoop in to save The L.A. Complex from extinction, you can stop. EW confirmed Thursday that The CW is not renewing the troubled show. The news was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
Fans of the show might see this news as bittersweet irony. Things didn’t ever go particularly well for any of the characters, in fact, they generally just got worse. Or they might just be upset that they’ll never find out what happens to Connor Lake and Kaldrick King. This show knew how to use a cliffhanger, and there were quite a few in the season 2 finale – which was never intended to be a series finale.
The countdown to cancellation began in early December when Canada’s Bell Media decided to pass on ordering a third season. With the news that The CW is passing as well, The L.A. Complex is out of distribution options. Though it had its fans, the hour-long drama about a group of struggling wannabe stars floundered with audiences, never picking up significant numbers after its dismal debut.
