Sunnyside Is The Unofficial First Cancellation of the 2019-2020 TV Season

NBC’s new sitcom Sunnyside is unofficially the first cancellation of the 2019-2010 television season, which is less than four weeks old. According to Variety, the network announced today it will pull the show after it’s fourth episode tomorrow. Bizarrely, NBC also ordered one more episode of Sunnyside, for a total of 11. The series remains in production and NBC plans to debut the remaining episodes weekly at its website, app, and other digital platforms.

Technically, NBC hasn’t cancelled Sunnyside but the odds of it returning for a second season are exceedingly small.

  1. Well, I read the full statement from NBC at the Futon Critic and it was quite clear that after tomorrow, Sunnyside will NEVER be seen on NBC again!! Yes, the other episodes are going to Hulu and MAYBE new episodes will be made for the new Peacock service ala AP Bio! But remember, the question was which show would leave network TV, and now we have our answer! BTW, I predicted Emergence and I still say it will be gone by the end of the year!

    1. According to The Futon Critic, “[the] remaining six episodes of the 10-episode “Sunnyside” order will air weekly on the NBC App, other digital platforms and NBC.com.”
