Networks cancel ‘Legend Of The Seeker’ TV show. According to “Entertainment Weekly,” The cult fantasy show “Legend Of The Seeker,” which I personally liked, has been officially canceled by the networks. They say multiple sources of theirs have confirmed that the show has been axed. The future of the show had been very bleak since last March because many of Tribune Station Group’s markets decided to drop the show from their lineup.

The series was developed by Terry Goodkind’s fantasy novels by Hercules/Xena producers,which are Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert. ABC studios produced the show,and kept trying to sell it,but nobody wanted to buy it. So,unfortunately, business has once again ruined the future of another great show. Read more »
