Eli Stone is cancelled. It has been a great show, but its stamina got to an end. This one is officially cancelled, there´s not much hope for the show… we saw a lot of other Cancelled Shows and Series…
Eli Stone is an American television comedy-drama created by Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim, who also served as executive producers alongside Ken Olin who directed the pilot, with Melissa Berman producing.
The show starred Jonny Lee Miller in the title role of attorney Eli Stone. In the first episode, Stone is discovered to have an inoperable brain aneurysm which is causing hallucinations. His acupuncturist, Dr. Chen, suggests that his hallucinations are actually divinely inspired visions of the future. These visions often foreshadowed future cases and events, including an impending earthquake.
Produced by ABC Studios, After Portsmouth and Berlanti Television, the series was officially greenlit and given a thirteen-episode order on May 11, 2007, and it aired as a mid-season replacement in 2008. Eli Stone premiered on Thursday, January 31, 2008 at 10:00PM Eastern/9:00PM Central, following the return of Lost; its first season finale aired April 17, 2008.
On May 13, 2008, ABC officially announced that the show had been renewed for the 2008-09 season. Moreover, in Canada, CTVglobemedia announced that they will send down the series to CTV’s relaunched “A” television system for the 2008-2009 season. Season 2 premiered on Tuesday, October 14 at 10:00PM Eastern/9:00PM Central.
On November 20, 2008, however, ABC told the show’s producers that it had opted not to order any new episodes, signaling that the series would be cancelled once all the episodes were used up.
The last scheduled episode of Eli Stone aired on December 30, 2008. Four episodes remain unaired and it is currently unknown whether ABC will air these episodes, or what happens to customers who prepaid for a full season on services such as the iTunes Music Store.
ABC is in negotiations to bring unaired episodes of Eli Stone to ABC.com without broadcast rights. Overseas networks aired these episodes prior to the US.
The final four episodes of the series will air Saturdays at 10:00PM Eastern/9:00PM Central on ABC starting Saturday, June 20, 2009.
