Well, that’s a wrap, folks. Eli Stone’s thirteen episode run is over. It’s been great. I’m not going to talk about what happened in case some people haven’t seen it yet. Suffice to say – the final epside is a super-strong ending to a series that only improved during the course of the season. I find hard to believe that a quality production like this won’t be picked up for a second season; but we live in strange times when it comes to TV, witness the popularity of reality shows. Here’s what Eli Stone’s creator, Greg Berlanti, had to say to E! Online about the prospects for a second season…
“Unfortunately we don’t know anything. But I can tell you this: Marc Guggenheim and I—as well as the cast, crew and other writers—are insanely proud of the show. Like any show, there was a learning curve, and our best episodes are clearly the last four or five.
“We just hope anyone who wants the show to come back will let that be known to ABC. And thanks so much to you and to all the fans who have reached out. It’s a great show, and it’s been immensely rewarding to have put something so unique and, hopefully, inspiring on the air.”
So, if you want more Eli, please head on over to ABC’s Eli Stone message boards, and let ABC how much you loved the show, and how much you want to see them make a second season. It would be cool if you signed the “Save Eli” petition too! This is not a “done deal” by any means. Your opinion and support counts.
