The LEGEND OF THE SEEKER syndicated series is being canceled by the Disney-ABC distribution company that produces the series due to low ratings as well as high production costs. The series has been on two years, and is a first rate production using expensive sets and special effects. If anything, this illustrates the difficulty of producing an expensive program just for syndication.
Last month, a number of Tribune stations dropped the series for programming or scheduling reasons , looking for higher rated programming. That was probably the final blow to the hopes of a third season.
LEGEND OF THE SEEKER hoped to lure an audience similar to XENA: THE WARRIOR PRINCESS, but struggled for two seasons to really establish that audience.
