There May Be A Small Chance For Brothers & Sisters!

Uh-oh. Things are not looking good for the Walker clan!

There's been quite a bit of speculation regarding the fate of ABC series Brothers & Sisters, as its the only veteran show from the network to have not yet been picked up, and now, sources close to production have revealed that in the event that it does survive the chopping block, it will only be returning for an abbreviated final year, with a considerably reduced role for star Calista Flockhart!

Apparently, the reason is purely economical, which we believe, seeing as the current season's budget was seriously reduced - and it cost Emily van Camp and Patricia Wettig their roles! The scenario right now is that the show WILL return, but only for 6-18 episodes, depending on ratings.

Studio execs are currently negotiating with Calista to do at least six episodes for another year, and depending on if the show only gets renewed for that much, then they'll have to continue those talks with the Sally Field and everyone else individually, because according to their contracts, they're required to have a minimum guarantee of 13.

Geesh! This is turning into quite the mess!

We'll keep our fingers crossed that everything works out, and they can at least get a few additional episodes under their belt to give the show a proper send-off!

It definitely doesn't deserve a rushed, impromptu series finale in May!

What do U think?? Would U watch another season of Brothers & Sisters?

    The last season was great, good plot lines. But this season was a mess and I lost interest in it. All the plot lines were bad.



  2. 2

    I just recently discovered this show and I LOVE it! I do think it has gone downhill since Rob Lowe, Balthazar Getty, and Emily VanCamp left. I'm almost bored to death with season 5

    Is this show still about pretty white people with not just problems, but the same problems over and over again? Remember when Eric Winter was on the show, man he was hott!

    fantastic show!! give it a proper send off with a full season next year!



  5. 5

    I liked the show when it first started. But then it became a big joke, all about who's effing who and coming out of the closet.

    The show has more to tell. Dump Calista, save the bucks, keep the show.



  7. 7

    I hope the show comes back. It is a bit "soap operish," but I enjoy it. I am getting to hate the Sara character—-she is portrayed as a spoiled brat.

    I love the show! I want it back!!!!

    They could get rid of Calista completely. Save her money for someone more interesting. Write in a more interesting character. Sara is a bit of a bore and a spoiled little rich bitch. She can go to. I like the Nora and Brody line. I like Scotty and Kevin and Oliva, not sure about the little baby. Why did Michele just drop him off? Not understanding that at all. Justin is a little boring. Give him a good storyline. Actually now that I'm typing this, the whole show has become a big bore fest. Guess after all I wouldn't miss it. Writers got lazy or just lost their gusto. Watch Parenthood on NBC, now that is a good show about dysfunctional families.

    They BETTER NOT cancel this show! Everyone I know, and all of my family, watch Brothers & Sisters religiously!!! The plot is now thickening and there is so much more to tell !!! F*** economics !!!!
