Two new releases are not coming back for NBC’s 2020-2021 season. The American channel has just announced the cancellation of Perfect Harmony and Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector.
During its 13 episodes, Perfect Harmony only managed to attract an average of 2 million viewers. It ranks 5th among the comedies available on NBC, just ahead of Indebted, which fate is not yet decided, and Sunnyside, which was quickly cancelled. Perfect Harmony had its focus on a former Princeton music professor, played by Bradley Whitford, who was in charge of a small town choir consisting of strong and heterogeneous personalities.
Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector also had a very limited reception for its only season. With an average of 3.7 million viewers, the series ranked 9th out of 13 dramas being broadcast by the channel. Based on Jeffery Deaver’s novel The Bone Collector, the series followed Lincoln Rhyme (Russell Hornsby), a famous criminologist paralyzed after an accident, who returns to work when the serial killer who put him in that state reappears. To help track him down, he will be able to count on Amelia Sachs (Arielle Kebbel), a young investigator who will be his hands and legs in the field.
Three other NBC series are still waiting for a decision: Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, Manifest and Indebted.
