Cancellation Buzz: Will Tonight Be Life's End? - Featured

Tonight is the second season finale of Life. It's also a distinct possibility that it will be the show's series finale.

E!Online quickly asked the show's creator and series star a few questions about the series:

Why should you watch, especially if you've never seen it before? As the delightful Damian puts it, "We're a cop show that has a bit of difference to it. It has themes which are a little bit more ambitious than your average show to do with transcendence and second chances."

What are the realistic prospects for a renewal? According to Rand Ravich, "NBC is kind of figuring itself out. Those questions are certainly above my pay grade, but I do feel like creatively we get tremendous support at the studio and network." Come on, NBC! At the very least, jokes Ravich, "I think we're going to play as little tiny 30 second spots in between Leno."

Has the show forgotten about Sarah Shahi's Dani Reese?

No, she's still preggers, but says Rand, "The energy of the show is Crews and Reese tumbling over and around each other. And that's something I would want to go back to as soon as I can." Us too! Those two are among the best partners of any stripe on any show anywhere.

So...who will be tuning into Life tonight?

Me, me! I just caught up on the last few episodes of Life last night, so even with that bit of time, I've been dying to see how the finale goes! I think the only decline of this show for season 2 has been the need to work around Shahi's pregnancy, but they've done it in an interesting way and there's still a very solid quality about this show that makes me need another season. Here's hoping!

I swear, either I'm the exact opposite of what network executives think a "target audience" likes, or they are stupid. It seems like every tv show I love gets the axe. Except Lost, of course.

I agree this show is great and as they say its a cop show with a difference, and if i am not mistaken the ratings have been going up the last few weeks!Come On NBC figure yourself out but give Life another season.

I wasn't able to tune in, too much stuff on at the same time, but I will catch up with it online....I love this show and it's quirkyness......I love how they've added another layer to it with Reeses temporary new assignment and a cool way to adapt to the actress's pregnacy! Please don't make this the swan song for Life!!! I LOVE LIFE!

i am a great fan of life its a great show but i guess we the audience don't count if they wanna ax it they will with no reason given the minority don't count

season two ended showed the love and connection between Reese and Crews and how much they rely on each other and will sacrifice for each other.
Even though it ended in a happy note with Roman dead, there's still enough to keep going for another season.
If it does end, it'll end with a good ending.. with a decent conclusion.
Great show, Awesome finale.

Fabulous finale and i hope only a season finale and that even now NBC has already decided to renew it. This is without a doubt one of there best shows and from the recent numbers i think alot of people agree, i read a 20+ percent increase last week.

Awesome finale! This season ended beautifully, I liked this show from the begining, the characters blended together nicely... Though Detective Crews "Damian Lewis" was the real star of the show, very interesting character.
I am very impressed with Garret Dillahunt playing the character Roman, well done, very bloody convincing that he was russian lol shame we won't see him again.
The lovely Detective Reese "Sarah Shahi" great character, I wished she went out with Crews though... The Iranian/Spanish blood shows in her beauty!
I'm not sure what would a third season add to the show, I can't see it getting any better. Yet if the writers are creative enough, bring it on!
will miss the characters for sure! Great Show!!!

the good shows always die and the the crap ges to go on forever example's Lost, Law and Order, ANy reality show, and AMerican Idol. please make them die. but id its intresting and funny at the same time. it got to go i think that the exs at NBC & CBS spend all day smoking crack and then pick the highest rated non retarded show and decide it must go. if they cancel Life or Castle i think i'll fire bomb each one of there homes and offices,

I absolutely ADORE this show and if it gets the axe I'm going to be absolutely CRUSHED. It's one of the top two shows I'm watching right now and am always excited for each week! NBC PLEASE renew LIFE and give it a third season! It's a brilliant show with a fabulous cast and deserves to go on! MORE LIFE! Please!
