    I believe they film in L.A., then drop in Portland exterior shots as needed. Not that the air has been any better in either place.

    While I'm way behind on watching the show, I was looking forward to (when I have time, which please gawd, will be soon) bingeing through things and enjoying the show. I hope they find a new home for it and can get going again on the show soon.

    Yep, same here. A quick check of my FutonCritic Showlist shows Stumptown was my only ABC show.

    I read where ABC is putting "For Life" in the Wed slot that Stumptown had. A lower rated show. I watched For Life about halfway thru the season, but gave up on it.

    But hey, money.

    One less reason to watch Network Tv. This fall will be a wasteland of junk. An more people will get into streaming. Therefore less people will care about network tv.

    Well, Stumptown was never going to be back in the Fall, thanks to COVID. And thanks to internal problems, it wasn't going to be ready for Spring either, which is why they ended up cancelling it (at best it would have had to be a summer show, when nobody's watching anyway.)

    I suspect the calculus was they would have had to keep everybody on contract for two years to get one season, and it just wasn't worth it.

    Just think that this fall will speed the move to streaming TV. As there will be less to watch.

    I moved on July 8. I didn't bother getting cable in my new place, because I know there won't be much of anything to watch this fall.

    I'm catching up on stuff that's been sitting on my TiVo for years. (Literally. Right now I'm watching the 2nd season of Les Revenants (The Returned) which I recorded in 2015.) I also finally subscribed to Netflix this year and I've been catching up on all the shows I've been missing out on. I'll probably get HBO Max soon too, and once Apple One comes out I'll have Apple TV+. (Apple One will be cheaper than the current combination of Apple services I get, so it will save me money to add Apple TV+.)

    I'd be willing to subscribe to cable again once COVID is over and there's lots of broadcast/cable shows to watch, but that could be a while. And if they won't give me a CableCard (which is looking likely now that the FCC mandate is gone) I won't subscribe.
