Creator of Cancelled CBS Drama So Help Me Todd Reveals What Would Have Happened

So Help Me Todd aired its series finale last week on CBS after a short second season consisting of just ten episodes. A legal comedy/drama starring Marcia Gay Harden and Skylar Astin, So Help Me Todd debuted in September 2022 and performed well enough for CBS to renew it for a second season. Unfortunately for fans of the show, CBS cancelled it last month, turning the second season finale into an unplanned series finale.

Although it won’t make up for the show ending unexpectedly, creator Scott Prendergast has shared details about what would have happened in Season 3 and beyond. In fact, he’s revealed his plans through the series finale, which would’ve taken place at the end of Season 7!

You can read interviews with Prendergast at TV Insider, Deadline Hollywood, and TVline.

Kudos to Scott Prendergast for being willing to give fans some closure.

  1. I don’t know why So Help Me Todd was cancelled.I don’t think CBS knows what it is doing. The West is going up in smoke yet they have this fictional Fire Country on the air. They put this horrible Yellowstone on after 60 minutes. It is laughable if it wasn’t do sad.

  2. It is a shame that So Help one Todd was cancelled! It was something that the entire family could watch together. Please bring it back.

  3. Please bring it back my teen and myself loved it. We could sit together and laugh it was great. What’s the excuse for canceling this show ?

    1. Hello Iris,
      TV Obscurities is a website created and maintained by a private individual who shares his research on television shows. No one connected with this website had anything to do with cancelling So Help Me Todd, so I’m not sure why you are asking the website owner what his excuse was for the cancellation. Perhaps you could contact the CBS television network with your concerns.

  4. So Help Me Todd is original, well-written, and fun to watch. Why would CBS cancel this example of excellent programming? I am a major fan of CBS and will not abandon my many favorites. Paramount + was the first streaming service I subscribed to separately from other connections. I watch several old TV shows repeatedly-good theater is well worth rewatching. So Help Me Todd is good theater.

  5. I loved So Help Me Todd please don’t get rid of this show. Loved the people in the show. I would record this show and watch it on my days off. Please bring this show back. Loved the fact that Marcia Gray could really dress like a boss. Her and Todd together were very comical. I know that they weren’t mom and son but they both acted very well together. Loved the show and the other stars also. Please bring them back to CBS best show on Thursday night for me in Texas. Bring them back. Thank You
