Katherine Heigl learned some disappointing news this week. Her TV drama State of Affairs was cancelled by NBC. The former Grey’s Anatomy actress hasn’t given up yet, however. She is hoping another network might pick the show up for a second season.
Sadly, Heigl wasn’t the only one to receive bad news. Several seemingly popular shows received the ax. She’s is in good company with actors like Josh Duhamel–whose show Battle Creek won’t be returning to CBS.
In addition to the Katherine Heigl drama, NBC cut some comedies from their lineup.
About A Boy, starring Minnie Driver, was cancelled–along with One Big Happy starring Elisha Cuthbert, and Marry Me , starring Casey Wilson and Ken Marino.
Katherine Heigl shared word of the State of Affairs cancellation, as well as her eternal optimism for a ‘new home’ via Twitter.
So grateful to all the cast, crew & fans of #StateOfAffairs for your support. Working hard to find a new home – stories still to tell!

@NBCStateAffairs was a blast to be a part of. Here's hoping it re-emerges elsewhere. Tougher. Smarter. Nastier & BETTER.

Are you a State of Affairs fan? Katherine Heigl stars as CIA analyst Charleston Tucker, and works directly with the first black female U.S. president–played by Alfre Woodard. Tucker presents the President’s Daily Briefing and decides–along with the president–how to handle serious international affairs.
NBC has assured fans that at least some of their favorites will return. The Blacklist, Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D., Law & Order: SVU, and The Mysteries of Laura will all return for new seasons.
CBS is bringing back The Big Bang Theory, 2 Broke Girls, Big Brother, Scorpion, Madam Secretary, Mike & Molly, Mom, and NCIS: New Orleans.
What’s your take on some of these cancellations? Are you among State of Affairs fans who are hoping–along with Katherine Heigl–that the show will find a new home? After all, fans want to find out if Nick Vera is possibly alive.
