If it wasn’t bad enough that ABC cancelled the supernatural night time soap, ‘666 Park Avenue,’ they have now announced that they will be pulling the rest of the episodes of the series off the air and will be replacing them with airings of the comedies ‘Happy Endings’ and ‘Don’t Trust the B—in Apt 23.’
Just last month, the producers had announced that the series would be getting a finale and that fans wouldn’t be left hanging when the last episode is shown. Unfortunately, they didn’t count on ABC to pull ‘666 Park Avenue’ from the Sunday night line-up and effectively leave fans wondering what will happen to the tenants of the haunted apartment building for the time being.
Effective January 6th, ‘Happy Endings’ and ‘Don’t Trust the B…’ will air back to back twice a week: Sundays from 10-11pm and Tuesdays from 9-10pm. This schedule will continue for the next couple Sundays (January 13 and 20). On January 27, the network will then air a special Hallmark movie. The Sunday time slots in February have yet to be scheduled except for the last Sunday, February 24, which is the date that the Academy Awards will air.
With only 4 more episodes left to be seen, fans will have to wait about 6 months until the summer to find out what happens to the residents of ‘666 Park Avenue.’ Considering the way ABC has been treating this series, I wouldn’t be holding my breath waiting for them to air. Showing 4 episodes without the first 9 after this long of a separation doesn’t really make much sense, does it? Or maybe ABC hopes that the break will be long enough for viewers to forget about the series and they won’t have to air it at all?
Whatever the case, once we hear when these final episodes will air, we’ll let you know.
So what do you think of ABC’s decisions? Will it be worth waiting until the summer to see how the series ends?
