The fate of Harry’s Law is something that has been in doubt for a while. The series, which tends to skew older, has been averaging 8 million total viewers and a 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demo this season.
Even so, for the past few weeks there had been talk of a shortened third season order for the series. Late last week that talk was of an order in the 15-18 episodes range, by yesterday I was being told by sources that the network was now looking at a 13 episode mid-season run. But in the end, the network decided to cut its losses and walk away. The series finale of Harry’s Law is set to air on NBC on Sunday May 20th at 8/7c.
Series star Kathy Bates confirmed the news on Twitter by saying: “Yea, Tweeters. Sad news today. Harry’s Law will not be renewed for a 3rd season. We are all terribly sad. Many thanks for all your support.”
