NBC Cancels 'American Odyssey' After One Season

Sad news for fans of the short-lived series American Odyssey – it has been canceled by NBC after just one season, according to Deadline.

NBC has not yet commented on the cancellation, but sources told the outlet that series co-creator Peter Horton personally called the cast to deliver the news.

Anna Friel, Peter Facinelli, and Jake Robinson starred in the series, which ended its season earlier this week.

American Odyssey followed three families who are torn apart when a stranded female soldier, a disillusioned corporate attorney and a disrespected political activist are pulled into the same shocking international military conspiracy.

Donald Trump Says He Was Not Fired By NBC

Donald Trump is opening up after NBC revealed that the network has cut ties with him. He says he is the one who decided to end their relationship.

The 69-year-old Republican presidential candidate spoke to reporters in a press conference on Monday (June 29) after NBC dropped the bombshell.

“They did not want me to run. They wanted me to do The Apprentice. And now with my statements on immigration which happen to be correct, they are going to take a different stance and that’s OK. Whatever they want to do is OK with me,” Trump said (via THR). “As far as ending the relationship, I have to do that because my view on immigration is much different than the people at NBC.”

Make sure to read what NBC said in its statement about pulling the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants from its lineup.

NBC Cuts Ties with Donald Trump, Pulls Miss USA Pageant

The network has announced that it will no longer air the planned Miss USA pageant or the upcoming Miss Universe pageant. Celebrity Apprentice will also not return to the channel.

“At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values. Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump,” the statement read.

“To that end, the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe Pageants, which are part of a joint venture between NBC and Trump, will no longer air on NBC . In addition, as Mr. Trump has already indicated, he will not be participating in The Apprentice on NBC,” the statement continued.

The news comes just days after Univision announced it will not carry the pageant either.

NBC Cancels 'Community' & 'Revolution,' Renews 'Hannibal' & 'About a Boy'

NBC has officially renewed Hannibal and About a Boy, Deadline reports.

However, the network did also deliver some sad news. Revolution, the JJ Abrams/Eric Kripke drama, will unfortunately not be getting a third season. Community will also not be returning after five seasons on the air. Community is a fan favorite show, and will certainly cause some blowback. Jamie Chung‘s Believe also did not make the cut.

About a Boy has been averaging a 2.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 8.3 million viewers, so it was no surprise that the show got a second season.

Hannibal has been doing okay in the ratings, and will premiere its third season next year.
