Cancellation Buzz: Showtime Confirms Brotherhood Is Canceled - Featured

Network sources confirm to E!Online that Brotherhood, the Irish-American mafia family drama set in Providence, R.I., will not be renewed for a fourth season.

News that the ax had officially dropped was first reported when discovered that the season-three discs were to be branded "the final season." Circa May, the network declined to confirm or deny the show's future (or lack thereof).

Brotherhood star Fionnula Flanagan told us in February: "We're on hiatus, and we're waiting to hear what Showtime's pleasure is about that. It will all have to be balanced with what else Showtime has on its roster for this next year. Usually the shooting season was the summer, so I should imagine that we'll know soon."

With such an interesting show, why can't these industry exec at least put the ending on dvd. They could make a lot of money and give the fans something to hope for if they would all just do that when they cancel a show. The Brotherhood was so good that I watched several seasons all day once. What a damn shame.
