    They've actually been pretty good with that though.
    I had to work at it a bit to figure it out.
    They've been pretty careful not to use locations that scream "Los Angeles" when they shoot outdoors.
    (Except for the episodes when Dex and Gray were in LA.)

    The pilot was mostly shot in Vancouver (Canada) though with a few scenes shot in Portland though.

    Not as much as you might think, Vancouver BC looks a lot different than Portland or Seattle. Now get outside of the cities and they look similar, but Vancouver BC is both more European and Asian than any city in America.

    Sounds like in addition to pandemic-related issues, the producers just couldn't get their act together...

    i would have watched until the end, but if i'm completely honest, while the cast was great, the writing won't be missed.

    This is all my fault. I just watched what I thought was the season 1 finale tonight thinking it had been renewed, only to find out it has been unrenewed.

    Boo!! The good news is they are shopping it around. Hopefully it will wind up streaming on a service I actually have.

    I've had this one in my Hulu watchlist. I was looking forward to watching Season 1 soon, based on the mostly positive buzz posted here. Sounds like the type of show my wife and I would both enjoy - breezy. If we end up liking it, it would be nice if it got picked up by another channel/streamer.

    Michael Early was on kelly Clarkson show, and stated they were to begin filming in Sept.

    But those talk shows could be taped weeks ago

    Curious: Is there any financial obligation to cast or crew? I vaguely recall that part of the renewal process is so you can lock up the players, preventing them from becoming free agents. Now that Cobie et al have lost a several month head start at getting new jobs, it seems like there would be a "buyout clause", so to speak.

    Damnit! I think that was the only show on ABC I watched anymore and one of only a handful on broadcast TV.

    There must be. The production company might have spent tens of thousands of dollars on writers, pre-production scouting, wardrobe etc after the renewal.

    Of course, tens of thousands of dollars on a network show is pretty much a rounding error...

    And it doesn't seem much work was done, which was the main stated reason for the cancellation...there was no way to get the show up and running in a time frame that would make it possible to air this season.

    I was asking more about what they might owe to, for example, Cobie Smulders, for signing her to another season, rather than what they've already spent.

    I wonder if some of the reason, maybe due to all the fires we have in our state.... and the SMOKE here is beyond bad!!!
    Then there is the protests that have been going on for well over 100 days now in downtown Portland.

    Hopefully some network/streaming provider will bring back the series.
