More information to fill the lists for cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012. This one really hurts, because the show was good, but ratings just weren´t there. Fox cancels Alcatraz and it´s a shame since now we are not going to know if Rebecca Madsen lives or dies.
Yet another show that does not get to give us a satisfying finale, same thing that happened with Heroes, Flash Forward and so many more. Good thing Fringe is getting a final season though, and that´s bringing JJ Abrams back at least.
What was Alcatraz about? Plot Synopsis
When San Francisco Police Department DET. REBECCA MADSEN (Sarah Jones) is assigned to a grisly homicide case, a fingerprint leads her to a seemingly impossible suspect: JACK SYLVANE (guest star Jeffrey Pierce), an Alcatraz inmate who died over 30 years ago. Given her family history – both her grandfather and surrogate uncle, RAY ARCHER (Robert Forster), were guards at the prison – Madsen’s interest is immediately piqued. When the enigmatic, knows-everything-but-tells-nothing government agent EMERSON HAUSER (Sam Neill) tries to impede her investigation, she becomes doggedly committed to it.
