I can see why people like Tristin (I'm sure she's not the only one) kept their friendship with Lenkov. Even with all his drama (so to speak) he can still presumably grease some wheels or know people who can so when things like this happen they can hit the ground running.

Well it could be any number of reasons really ratings, storylines, etc... I think it all started when George Eads left the show and it hasn't been the same since. When the character Desi was introduced I was afraid that they would put her and Mac together and I was right. To me, that was a big mistake, they had these characters break-up off/on than they had to make the whole thing into a triangle by having Riley into the mix which turned almost every episode into soap opera instead of the action / adventure it was suppose to be

Like many others I wasn't surprised to read about the cancelation, sadden but not surprised. There are still MacRiley shippers that hope that in three weeks that they would somehow get together eventhough, in the weeks episode, Mac and Desi are moving in. I could be wrong, but I thought Riley made it clear that it wouldn't be a good idea since it would ruin their friendship. To me they always good together as friends or brother/sister. Never thought of them romantically., still don't

The show was great w/o this romantic entanglements and a triangle. I would like to see Mac with a LI but not like what was happening in season 5.

Bummer! Whilst I've never really warmed to the re-boot (new Mac is not really Mac to me and I don't like the CSI/24/IMF/Fast and furious vibes) I'll be sad to see it go.

All a network cares about is money. Ratings-wise, there was no reason for cancelling it. To me, there will always be a question mark if they didn't just want to finally close the lid on the actors that led to Lenkov finally being fired (and maybe even to the cancellation of H50).

I was expecting a cancellation after Season 4, but not this time. While covid safety protocols made the show more expensive, they still got a "cheap" season with 15 episodes while only filming 8 and a half. They successfully filmed during a pandemic with a complete new crew and even setting up an LA Unit for Meredith (instead of writing her character out temporarily). Why bother if they were going to cancel it anyway? Why bother with re-opening the merch store with new items?

It would have been nice if they got a "re-nancelling" (announcement that a shortened Season 6 will be their last) so they can wrap up at least some of the unresolved storylines.

And while the cast might do well for a few months despite being unemployed, the crew is probably not in the best place when losing their jobs during a pandemic. I hope we get to see them working on other projects soon.

I'm not sure they're friends. The problem is that if you're not an A-Lister, you can't piss off too many people in the industry because even though Lenkov might be shunned temporarily, he still is friends with friends with friends who know people.

So far, I've only seen Lenkov comment on Justin's post which was a bit of a shocker to me.

I doubt it. Georgia has been a "problem" for a while now and CBS still has another show in production there ("Dynasty" that airs on CW).

Also, there's a lot of people that need a film industry job so why punish them?

We'll never know the real reason, but I think it was a way to get rid of another Lenkov show while at the same time make room for another show - either the newly ordered NCIS: Hawaii to pair it with Magnum (pushed to 8pm as lead-in) or to put another show there that isn't doing too well (e.g. Bull or SWAT).

Still haven't seen season 4 here and I presume they will probably wait to do it until they can air it along with season 5. While opinions over the show has clearly been divided, it's sad to see it cancelled. I did see potential in the reboot and great story angles. Too bad to see it get cancelled but I'm glad for the things they did right. They gave us a great new Murdoc and other great characters like the Ghost and Riley and Jill was an excellent supporting character and they will always live on in fanfiction and 94 episodes is not bad in total.



I think the poison that was used was applied to this knife, passed to the mutton when it was cut and then activated by the wine. - MacGyver.
Sometimes you just have to die a little inside to be reborn and rise again as a stronger and wiser version of you.
It's better to be a little sad than to be fake content.

Tristin hasn't made a post yet on IG about it so he doesn't have the opportunity to post there. But before this, she made comments on his posts long after his firing. He had a post up of just Tristin/Riley for Women's Day, which I thought was insensitive looking at face value as she's not the only woman on that show. Till you realize the sum total of all which says to me they are friends with each other at least online.

But doesn't Lenkov had his hand in other shows as well, particularly a quarter of their primetime lineup...Why single this one out...alone?
