Boston Legal Bows Out After Next Season

According to ABC Entertainment President Steve McPherson, the next season of Boston Legal will be its last. The show will finish out with a 13 episode season next fall.

Though many were shocked by the announcement, McPherson went on to explain the ABC remake of the BBC hit "Life on Mars" posed some of the problem, as David E. Kelley wrote most of the pilot, but now trades the series to October Road's Josh Appelbaum, Andre Nemec and Scott Rosenberg in return for writing virtually every one of the final thirteen episodes of Boston Legal. You can see more details here.

The move doesn't come as a shock to me - and I'm not slamming ABC for it. I just don't know where else the series can go. Don't go me wrong - I enjoy it a lot, but having recently watched Alan Shore's debut in the practice, it's amazing the sweeping character arc he and Denny Crane have seen in the last four years. Now, with Denny's Alzheimer's looming on the horizon, maybe it is time to start thinking about the end game.

In the end, it's a great series which never ceases to amaze me, but despite how much I'm going to miss it, at least Crane, Poole and Schmidt can go out in style!

This is sad to me. I was an original "The Practice" viewer and followed right into this show. Boston Legal is great. It has gotten pretty "preachy" the last two seasons, but James Spader's character is so intriguing! I'll miss this show big time when it leaves.

Now with news of Moonlight and Shark exiting too I'm just getting more and more disappointed with the networks. Every new show seems to be getting the boot before it does much (Bionic Woman?)!
