As the current Golden Age of Television continues, viewers are treated to a huge number of new and returning TV series this year. But just like every year, not all of these TV shows were renewed for another season. While some ran their course, others were canceled due to low ratings, negative critic reviews, and rising production costs. Sadly, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic also played a significant part in a number of cancellations. Browse through the slideshow below to see all the scripted series that were canceled in 2021. The list also includes shows that ended/ending their respective runs this year but got the axe in 2020 and 2019.
The Baker and the Beauty
No. of Season: 1
Based on the Israeli romantic-comedy series of the same name, The Baker and the Beauty was canceled by ABC in June after just one season. Though the original show ranked as one of the highest-rated scripted series ever in Israel, the U.S. adaptation had a tough time connecting with viewers, ranking as one of the ABC’s lowest-rated series.
Starring Victor Rasuk and Nathalie Kelley in the title roles, the show’s nine-episode freshman season centers on Daniel Garcia (Rasuk), who is working in the family bakery and doing everything that his loving Cuban parents and siblings expect him to do. But on a wild Miami night, he meets Noa Hamilton (Kelley), an international superstar and fashion mogul, and his life moves into the spotlight.
