Big Sky, Alaska Daily, and The Company You Keep Canceled at ABC


ABC is saying goodbye to three bubble dramas ahead of the 2023-24 season.

Big Sky, Alaska Daily, and The Company You Keep have all been canceled on the network.

Big Sky is coming to a close after three seasons, with its January season finale serving as a series finale.

The drama averaged 4.8 million total viewers and a 0.5 rating in Live+7 playback, down a bit vs. last season.

The Katheryn Winnick and Kylie Bunbury-led drama was truly a bubble drama.

The show has been a success internationally on the Disney-owned Star, but with ABC becoming home to 9-1-1 and clawing back Dancing With the Stars from Disney+, its chances of a fourth season diminished.

Meanwhile, the Hilary Swank starrer Alaska Daily wrapped its freshman season in March.

It averaged 5.3 million viewers and a 0.4 rating in the demo, meaning that a renewal was very much out of the question.

The series lost much of its Grey’s Anatomy lead-in, which isn’t good.

ABC will likely try a new drama out of Grey’s Anatomy next season.

The Company You Keep, starring Milo Ventimiglia, suffered from low ratings, despite a strong lead-in.

The series averaged 3.8 million viewers and a 0.4 rating — with a week of DVR factored in.

The show’s chances were meager of snagging a pickup.

ABC’s comedies and The Rookie: Feds remain on the bubble as we head into ABC’s upfronts next week.

The show had a strong chance of a pickup because of its ties to the main series, but the aforementioned pickups at ABC could complicate a renewal.

ABC previously renewed Abbott Elementary, Station 19, Grey’s Anatomy, The Rookie, The Good Doctor, and Will Trent.
