Well, we may get to pour another round of Whiskey Cavalier after all. According to TVLine, the recently canceled ABC dramedy starring The Walking Dead’s Lauren Cohan and Scandal’s Scott Foley is under consideration to be saved by the network for a midseason sophomore run.
Last week at the Disney/ABC Upfronts presentation, ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke confirmed the series’ cancellation, citing it as the toughest call the network made this season.
However, when Whiskey Cavalier aired its “series” finale this past Wednesday, it did so to 3.8 million viewers and a 0.7 demo rating, giving the series it’s highest ratings in 11 weeks. That may have been thanks in part to creator Bill Lawrence who encouraged audiences to tune in and show ABC just how much love there is for the freshman series. Not to mention, the episode did end on a cliffhanger of sorts, so there are quite a number of fans looking for some sort of closure!
Tonight: great season finale of #WhiskeyCavalier. Maybe check it out? Make this a “season” finale and not a series finale. Just an idea.

The series followed tough but tender FBI super-agent Will Chase (code name: “Whiskey Cavalier” played by Foley) who was assigned to work with badass CIA operative Frankie Trowbridge (code name: “Fiery Tribune” played by Cohan). Together, they had to find a way to work together alongside an inter-agency team of flawed, funny and heroic spies who periodically save the world – and each other – while navigating the rocky roads of friendship, romance, and office politics.

Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
