Pan Am officially cancelled by ABC
Written by : thetvking published Sunday 20th May 2012
ABC has now officially cancelled 60's drama Pan Am. This means that Pan Am fans won't get to see more than the initial 14 episodes featuring the iconic US airline.
Things didn't look good for Pan Am fans after only 14 episodes were aired, some out of order production was stopped. However ABC still wouldn't confirm that Pan Am wasn't going to return for a 2nd season.
Pan Am was named after and based around the iconic US international airline and was created by Jack Orman (ER). The show set in 1963 followed the lives of the crew of one of the iconic Clippers. The show starred Christina Ricci (Sleepy Hollow), Mike Vogel (Cloverfield), Kelli Garner (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Margot Robbie(Neighbours), karine vanasse and Michael Mosley (Scrubs).
In the UK Pan Am was shown Saturday nights on BBC2, however as with many recent US acquisitions by the BBC(Nurse Jackie, Mad Men, Heroes) , wasn't given a regular time slot which left viewers frustrated.
Pan Am has been popular in Europe and this is epitomised by its win at the Rose d’Or awards and has been a big international seller for producer Sony TV, which would love to see it continue.
So even though it has been cancelled by ABC, is their a chink of light for Pan Am fans? Will it be picked up by a cable network or could a European broadcaster afford to pick it up? Will the fan petition do any good?
