The CW is not only cancelling Backpackers, but also pulling it immediately from the schedule. The Online to television comedy show did not manage to pull in viewers, and with the shows already pre-empted for next Monday because of the Young Hollywood Awards, they will not return at all, filling the void with a lineup of Mondays that will see an original Whose Line Is It Anyway?, an encore episode of the improv show, and repeats of Arrow. All this until August 18th when America´s Next Top Model premiere its 21st cycle for six consecutive weeks before moving to its permanent Fridays slot.
What is Backpackers about? In an attempt to get over a serious case of cold feet, recently engaged Ryan (Noah Reid) and Beth (Meghan Heffern) embark on separate European vacations with the mantra “what happens in Europe, stays in Europe.” But hours into his adventure with his party animal and womanizing best friend Brandon (Dillon Casey), Ryan realizes he’s made a huge mistake and sets off in search of Beth. His one problem? He has no idea where she could be.
