All eyes have been on the fate of The Village. NBC has made a decision and it’s not a good one. Does this have to be the end?

Sadly, The Village Season 2 isn’t happening. Last week, NBC made the decision to cancel the freshman series, along with Abby’s and The Enemy Within.

It’s annoying. The season ended with questions and hopes for the future and now we don’t get to know whether Patricia is going to make it through surgery. Well, I guess we can believe she will since we don’t know anything else. Think of it like Schrodinger’s Cat. Yes, I just added a The Big Bang Theory reference.

One thing I hate about the decision is that it could have come sooner. NBC held off on making a decision about the fate of the show until just last week. When all networks were making their cancellation and renewal decisions ahead of the Upfront presentations, there was hope that NBC would renew The Village, even though, deep down, we knew it was going to be canceled because of the low live ratings.

This isn’t the first time NBC has done something like this. Remember how long Timeless fans were strung along for the fate of their show?

This doesn’t mean it has to be the end right now. Fans have immediately taken to petitioning for the series to be saved. There has to be another network or streaming service that will pick it up. Despite having low figures, it was doing better than the likes of Good Girls and Blindspot, which were both renewed.

While I don’t think the show will be saved, I do think it should be. This was a series with a lot of heart and love, focusing on real life, tough subjects, and family.
