Cancellation Buzz: Is Trauma Un-Canceled? - Featured

Though back in October NBC announced that they would not be picking up additional episodes of Trauma beyond its initial 13 episode order, buzz is starting to build that the show is...uncanceled.



But how is this even possible??


According to Nikke Finke of Deadline Hollywood Daily,

"I've learned that NBC has told the show this week the network not only will produce all 13 episodes from its current order but also order more. What helped to earn a pickup? A recent ratings rise."


Of course, as things currently stand, no additional episodes have actually been ordered. This is still in rumor phase. Though - should this turn out to be true - I guess it only further serves to prove that you shouldn't give up on your show just because it has been "canceled" - as this word no longer seems to have any sort of absolute meaning.


If Trauma's un-cancellation is true, would you be happy?


Update: E!Online has also picked up this story, though they are citing the same single source.


Update 2: NBC has ordered 3 additional episodes, bringing the total up from 13 to 16.

Excellent choice, to uncancel Trauma. It is a show with a unique face on acting, and there is something endearing about the characters, week to week the show is developing so that viewers get hooked. It has the ER potential, to run long and keep us hooked.

I'm so glad (if it is true), as Trauma has quickly become one of my favourite shows. I'm loving the characters, and the storylines. :)

Trauma is awful. When they arent preaching about a liberal cause....wait thats all they do. Never has a show been so used as a cheap political soap box and its more than annoying, its destroyed any chance it had of being a good show. I watched the 1st 5 or 6 episodes but got turned off by its sacrificing of good story telling in order to make some angry left wing writer feel better.
Shows like this are pathetic. I hope its cancelled yesterday. Only the even more pathetic NBC would dare produce another rotten episode. Maybe they can do an episode about how global warming caused a 20 car pile up....ha...i bet they actually would....

I really enjoy Trauma. I think there are some great characters in it (Rabbit is a real find) and I like the dynamics. Some strong storylines, even though it must be hard to find new variations on medical series, and good writing. Keep it coming.
