When asked if the show was looking good for a fifth season, Hernandez saidWe’re golden. I think you could bank on that.

Lui continuò: “The numbers are great, it travels well internationally…. Quindi sì, I think we’re in good shape. And you know what, they’re happy with the show. They loved this season, a lot of the stories they were really digging. And the episode I directed, they loved to the extent that I’ve already been asked to direct another one next season.

In questo momento, it still remains unclear why CBS decided to cancel the show, but it was not the only one to get axed.

B Positive, United States of Al, How We Roll, and Good Sam were also cut.
