A few weeks back, we brought you the news that ABC was strongly considering bringing back 'Body of Proof' for a fourth season. Unfortunately, it seems that either those original reports were overblown, or ABC has since had a change of heart.
Series star Dana Delany took to Twitter today, in an apparent attempt to prevent previously burned 'Proof' fans from getting their hopes up any further: "Sorry to disappoint some, but #bodyofproof will not be resurrected. May she rest in peace. Time for new adventures!" Well, I guess that's pretty much that. If anyone would know whether the show is coming back, it would have to be its lead actress.
The online response to 'Body of Proof's seemingly impending resurrection was overwhelmingly positive, to the point where many were crediting ABC with making a smart move. 'BOP' was never a ratings juggernaut, but its numbers make most of ABC's new series look downright awful. To put things in perspective, 'Proof's series finale back in May brought in roughly double the audience that the latest episode of 'Once Upon A Time Wonderland' earned.
Sadly, fans have to go back to mourning the loss of the show they loved. Ah, the incomprehensible thought processes of network executives. The day their decisions make sense to us normal folk will likely be a precursor to the coming apocalypse.
