Legend of the Seeker canceled.

The final decision is in. Source = Ausiello Files

Hey, fans of Legend of the Seeker: You know that 11th hour stay of execution you were hoping for? Well, you can stop hoping now — I’m hearing from multiple sources that the cult fave has been axed.

The outlook had been bleak since last March, when many of Tribune Station Group’s markets dropped the syndicated series, which had been developed from Terry Goodkind’s fantasy novels by Hercules/Xena producers Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert. ABC Studios, which produces it, kept shopping it around. But, I’m told, they found no takers. So, after two action-packed seasons, Legend is history.

Any last thoughts/parting words/favorite memories as the series makes its way to that great TV show graveyard in the sky?

*brb sobbing*

As a long-time, die hard fan of the books I can't say I'm surprised. I know I made far more allowances than other die hard book fans, but...

I'll miss it :(

The books have 340932432433 people that read and obsess over them. I feel like if they stayed more true to the world of story, the original story and made it less episodic and more... mini-series-ish, it would have done better.
ovariesofsteel 26th-Apr-2010 06:42 pm (UTC)
Exactly! I can see how it was difficult for so many to get on board-even I had a hard time towards the end.

I've read each book more times than I can count, so I'm all over any variation they threw into the show and very critical.

Having just done this with SCC, sincere condolences to this shows fans.
thelake 26th-Apr-2010 06:18 pm (UTC)
I was thinking the same thing :(
anythingbutgrey 26th-Apr-2010 06:25 pm (UTC)
ugh don't remind me with scc. i still haven't recovered.
arisma 26th-Apr-2010 06:27 pm (UTC)
Me either, seriously. I was at a friends house a few weeks ago and they were watching and I just kind of played with their cat.
heynightingale 26th-Apr-2010 06:26 pm (UTC)
And I'm a fan of both.

peacefulscream 26th-Apr-2010 07:10 pm (UTC)

So this means those two chicks won't hook up? Damn.

You have no idea how sad I am at that.

RIP Cara/Kahlan :(((((
natasha_hc 26th-Apr-2010 06:16 pm (UTC)

I'll miss you Cara, HBIC.

But which other show will offer an abundance slow motion fight scenes starring Kahlan's hair? WHICH ONE?

RIP Kahlan's hair. You will be missed. :(

I really need Legend of the Seeker in my life. There is no other show on television with two women who kick ass and don't hate each other or fight over the same man.
thelake 26th-Apr-2010 06:19 pm (UTC)
word. they should all have been "women power and I'll be over here" then shut their mouths.
bushidoniggy 26th-Apr-2010 06:28 pm (UTC)
pretty much the entire was all about feminism. The keeper was a man, the creator was a woman. Male confessors are evil. Etc etc
heynightingale 26th-Apr-2010 06:25 pm (UTC)
Definitely. I miss having kick-ass women on my tv screen. :(

And now there is none. Grrrr...
quiet_fractures 26th-Apr-2010 06:43 pm (UTC)
THIS. I loved it because it was so good at depicting strong female characters. AND THEY WERE FRIENDS IN SCI-FI/FANTASY YOU DON'T SEE THAT.

I feel bad for the actors
