ABC Cancels Pan Am, Last Show Will Air After Christmas


So much for those friendly skies.

ABC has decided to cancel their new drama series Pan Am, starring Christina Ricci.

In recent weeks, the show’s ratings have plummeted so this doesn’t come as a huge surprise to us.

Actress Karin Evanasse confirmed the news on her Twitter:

Well, we received THE call, #PanAm is only coming back for one more episode after Christmas. But up to the end, we’ll give it our all !

At least she seems to be taking it well.

You’ll still be able to catch Ashley Greene‘s episode though. Her episode airs December 4.

The last time you’ll be able to see the flying ladies in blue will be their last post-Christmas episode airing in January.

UPDATE: There is hope!

According to a statement from a rep at ABC:

“Nothing has changed. We are not cancelling Pan Am. We are still in production and will continue to be in production finishing the original 13 episodes plus one more additional one. We have one more original episode this coming week, Dec. 4 and then will return in January with new episodes, airing all of them. Pan Am is still in contention for next season.”

Now see! If you guys make a big enough stink, maybe the show will get the back nine it so could use! Fingers-crossed!
