Oh no!  Say it ain’t so!  After only two seasons, WGN has canceled the “Underground” series.  Executive produced by John Legend, the show chronicled the lives of runaway slaves.  It was a creative, trailblazing, gutsy and much needed series.

Peter Kern, the new CEO of Tribune Media–the parent company of WGN network–had this to say:

Despite ‘Underground’ being a terrific and important series, it no longer fits with our new direction and we have reached the difficult decision not to renew it for a third season. We are tremendously proud of this landmark series that captured the zeitgeist and made an impact on television in a way never before seen on the medium.

Another network needs to pick up the series pronto!  BET.  TV One.  Don’t let this series die.
