Actress and television producer Rashida Jones wants fans of “A to Z” to know that the show has not been canceled. While NBC has announced that they will no longer be making additional episode orders past the 13-episode set, Jones insists that there is still hope the series would live on or get a renewal. Read on to learn about this story.
According to Zap2it, NBC has confirmed that “A to Z” is not yet effectively off the network’s grid. In a statement sent to the site, an insider claimed that the arrangement with the series may be changed.
"[The] show is not officially canceled. For the time being, NBC has decided not to order any more episodes after its original 13-episode order. We always have the option of changing that later on," said the insider, as published on Zap2it.
Taking cue from this, Rashida Jones, one of “A to Z’s” creators, has launched a #saveAtoZ campaign on Twitter. In her verified account, the actress/producer stated that despite the news, viewers and fans should still keep watching the series and join others to do the same to persuade NBC bigwigs to change their minds.
The actress/producer also clarified that “A to Z” has not been “officially” canceled. The series has eight more episodes left to air and will go on until the end of January 2015.
Jones, who is known for her role as Ann Perkins on “Parks and Recreation,” which also airs on NBC, has been retweeting messages from followers who have been showing support for “A to Z.” The series is actually Jones’ baby, and it is the first network television show she has conceptualized, developed and produced along with fellow actor Will McCormack (“In Plain Sight”). She has also written the upcoming episode “G is for Geronimo” for the series.
Join Rashida Jones and the rest of the cast and crew of “A to Z” in their #SaveAtoZ campaign by continuing to watch the series every Thursday at 9:30 p.m. on NBC. We’ll bring you the latest developments on this only here on Movie News Guide (MNG).
