The Beverly Hills Cop TV spin-off planned for CBS seemed to be a foregone conclusion, with a star in place (Brandon T. Jackson), a TV vet as the new police chief (Christine Lahti), and even the promise of occasional visits from original star Eddie Murphy as Detective Axel Foley. But in May, it was announced that CBS had passed on the hour-long drama, leaving the pilot’s future up in the air.

Showrunner Shawn Ryan had hoped another network would save the show, but he tweeted Friday that they couldn’t find a new home. All hope is not lost, however: Ryan also revealed that there there’s now interest in a movie sequel instead.
