'Seed' Cancelled: CityTV Pulls Plug On Adam Korson Comedy After Two Seasons


So much for "Starbuck."

CityTV's "Seed" will no longer be accepting donations in the form of viewers. The comedy, which centred around the exploits of a 30-something bachelor's (and former sperm donor's) attempts to connect with his extended "family," has not been renewed for a third season.

“We are extremely proud of "Seed" and the two seasons that we were able to bring to our viewers,” said a representative for Rogers, in a statement obtained by TV, eh?.

"It was a difficult decision, but, despite critical acclaim, the series was unable to connect with the audience it needed to continue. We thank Canadians for their support for Seed over the last two years and look forward to bringing them more original content in the future.”

The show, which starred Thornhill, Ont.'s Adam Korson, was nominated for eight Canadian Screen Awards in 2014, but left empty-handed.

The Halifax-produced series briefly aired in the U.S. this summer on The CW, but was cancelled after two episodes due to low ratings.

"It wasn’t as successful this past Monday as I hoped," said network president Mark Pedowitz, to the Hollywood Reporter.

Korson has since posted his reaction to the news on Twitter, writing, "Thx 2 all the fans aka #seedlings of @Seed_tv."

"We had 2 great seasons filled w fun+laughter on @City_tv We may not see Harry anymore, but.. he's kickin it somewhere doin just fine. Also u'll catch reruns on @FX_Canada @City_tv 4 ever! C u again soon on a screen nearest u!"

The series finale aired in Canada on CityTV back on June 5, and it did not earn a spot on BBM's list of the nation's top 30 TV programs that week.
