However my monitoring was not regular so I was shocked today to discover all manner of articles on-line stating it to be cancelled.
|Has Houdini escaped his contract?|
Now, it should be mentioned that none of these articles are from solid sources. The show's future is officially unknown but I do find myself thinking the old adage "there's no smoke without fire".
In the US it is reported that Fox screened the series finale on July 4th which pretty much ensured low ratings. Other reports state that some of the actors have departed on the grounds of low pay. I find that one particularly odd given that I read, months ago, that Mangan had signed a five-year deal on the show in which, presumably, his pay packet would have featured prominently. It is of course possible that it is the more peripheral actors whose pay is really the subject of these rumours and whose contracts are probably less generous.
In any event I hope these rumours prove false and that the show is renewed. I know it plays fast and loose with the facts and the chronology but it is pretty fun.
