I just read that Backstrom is being cancelled. That’s really too bad, because I thought it quite a good show. The cast worked well together, and everyone seemed to be just hitting their stride. Too bad NBC had this show up against Scandal and The Blacklist: viewership may have had a chance to climb otherwise.
One partial season only (13).
