Space cancels Todd and the Book of Pure Evil

It’s official – the students of Crowley High are not returning for a third season of Todd and the Book of Pure Evil on Space.

“It is true that Space has opted not to renew Todd for a third season,” Todd exec producer Anthony Leo of Aircraft Pictures confirmed to Playback Tuesday.

“However, we are currently exploring other financing options in conjunction with our international broadcast partners and hope to be sharing some good news shortly,” Leo added in an e-mail.

News of the cancellation was first heard Monday night at the Writers Guild of Canada’s Screenwriting Awards in Toronto from Craig David Wallace, Todd creator and executive producer, who told the crowd, while accepting an award for his Todd script, “it was a blast while it lasted.”

Wallace also noted at the WGC awards that all four shows nominated in the WGC’s TV comedy category – Todd, 18 to Life, Dan for Mayor, and Michael: Tuesdays and Thursdays – had been cancelled.

Michael: Tuesdays and Thursdays is a victim of the recent cuts to the CBC TV lineup; Bell Media axed Dan for Mayor in September after two seasons; and CBC show 18 to Life, which also briefly aired on the CW stateside, was also pulled last year.
