'Rebel' Officially Canceled, ABC Series Fails to Find New Home for Season 2

The ABC series Rebel has officially been canceled after it was unable to find a new home.

ABC announced back in May that the network would not be ordering a second season of the freshman series, starring Katey Sagal as the title character.

“THANK YOU to the fans behind the #SaveRebel campaign. Your passion was incredible. We have learned there won’t be a Season 2, but we truly hope Rebel & the extraordinary @ErinBrockovich will continue to inspire you to fight the good fight in your communities and in your lives,” she tweeted.
