Lloyd Segan Comments on Haven Ending

Just spoke to Lloyd Segan and when I asked about Haven being cancelled and according to him it wasn’t cancelled. This was what David Howe (president of the network) and the rest of the team envisioned it all to end over a year ago. I asked him if they did get a chance to do an ending or if the show cancelled after they were done with the season and here is what he answered.

Indeed the show was not canceled. A misfortunate headline. But yes all planned for.

Why Did Cary Fukunaga Leave IT?

Entertainment Weekly have talked to Cary Fukunaga who explained why he left IT:

“It’s never easy,” he says. “Chase [Palmer] and I had been working on that script for probably three years. There was a lot of our childhood and our experience in it. Ultimately, we and New Line have to agree on the kind of movie we want to make, and we just wanted to make different movies.”

“It’s like a relationship,” he continued. “You can try to make the other person who you want them to be, but it’s impossible really to change. You just have to work.”

Haven Cancelled!

It looks like there will only be 13 more troubled episodes of Haven but on the good side it seems they managed to get a good ending to the show...

The Troubles are coming to an end. Syfy has canceled its long-running supernatural drama “Haven,” which will end its run after the upcoming 13-episode conclusion to its fifth season, TheWrap has learned.

The cable network aired the first 13 episodes of Season 5 in 2014, with the second half set to premiere in October.

Showrunner Gabrielle Stanton told TheWrap that even though the decision came after Season 5 of “Haven” had wrapped, the creative team was prepared for the end.

“I’m sure as a fellow TV fan, there’s nothing more annoying than when a show kind of feels like it might be wrapping up, but they just don’t address it, they don’t come to any kind of satisfying conclusion,” she said. “I always think that’s cheating the audience a little bit, of a nice satisfying ending. So we really looked at these 13 episodes as if… If we were indeed going to end, what would be the best ending we could possibly do for Haven?”

Should The Dome Stay Up or Not?

Section: TV » Under the Dome

I say let the Dome stay down and end this while someone is still watching. What do the rest of you think?

CBS Entertainment Chairman Nina Tassler told reporters at the Television Critics Association summer press tour on Monday that while no decision has been made about Season 4, they aren't ruling it out. "The dome is coming down at the end of this season, but that opens up a host of other storytelling opportunities," Tassler said.

The question came as Tassler was being asked about the overall performance of CBS's summer programming. While Tassler acknowledged it's been a tougher summer, she said she is happy with the network's summer strategy. "We went into summer to have more original programming on air," she said. "Zoo is the No. 1 scripted show, Dome is the No. 2 scripted show, and Extant is No. 4. ... The shows are still performing. ... [and] these stream well on Amazon."
