Hugh Laurie’s ‘Chance’ Canceled at Hulu

Hugh Laurie’s ‘Chance’ Canceled at Hulu
Hugh Laurie’s Hulu drama “Chance” has been canceled after two seasons, a representative told TheWrap Tuesday. The psychological thriller, produced by Fox 21 Television Studios, was picked up for two seasons by the streaming service in 2016. The show is based on Kem Nunn’s novel of the same name. The drama had Laurie again starring as a doctor, his first series regular role since “House.” Laurie has had roles in other shows in between, such as President Selena Meyers (Julia Louis-Dreyfus)’ love interest on “Veep” and as Richard Roper on the mini-series “The Night Manager,” for which he won Best Performance by an Actor...

Chance Canceled After Two Seasons at Hulu!

Chance will not be returning for a third season at Hulu

The Hugh Laurie-fronted drama series has been canceled after just two seasons.

The news is especially surprising when you consider the fact that it sparked a bidding war amongst the networks. This was likely down to the appeal of Laurie, who appeared on the award-winning drama series House between 2004 and 2012. 

Still, the show was poised to be a hit for Hulu, and while critics seemed to love it, it's unclear how it was performing in terms of viewers. 

Like many streaming destinations, Hulu does not provide details that include the number of people watching its shows, so it's difficult to judge whether the shows will become hits or misses. 

Unlike The Handmaid's Tale and Marvel's Runways, Chance is one of the shows that had minimal buzz, and that should have been confirmation alone that its days were numbered.

Hugh Laurie Drama ‘Chance’ Canceled by Hulu

Hulu has canceled “Chance,” its drama series starring Hugh Laurie, after two seasons.

Hailing from Fox 21 Television Studios, “Chance” was given a two-season pick-up by Hulu in 2016. Season one premiered in October, 2016, with the second season premiering in October, 2017. Based on Kem Nunn’s novel of the same name, “Chance” starred “House” alum Laurie as Eldon Chance, a San Francisco-based forensic neuropsychiatrist. After an ill-advised decision regarding an alluring patient who may be struggling with a multiple personality disorder, he finds himself in the crosshairs of her abusive spouse who also happens to be a ruthless police detective. In over his head, Chance’s descent into the city’s shadowy underbelly, all while navigating the waters of a contentious divorce and the tribulations of his teenage daughter, soon spirals into an ever deepening exploration of one of mankind’s final frontiers — the shadowy, undiscovered country of the human mind.

‘The Orville,’ ‘Young Sheldon’ and Which New Shows You Should Cut or Keep Watching — Updated Reviews
As fall transitions into winter, TV seasons change with the weather. It feels like just yesterday, the internet was abuzz with anticipation for a slew of new fall shows. “The Orville,” “Young Sheldon,” “The Good Doctor,” and more are all shows that feel like they just started, and in a way, they did; September wasn’t that long ago. But after seeing anywhere from seven to 12 total episodes of each series, opinions change and decisions have to be made.

Winter is coming: More new shows are on the way, and keeping up with everything isn’t an option. So it’s time to make cuts, starting with the new broadcast series that have aired enough episodes to be assessed properly. We know what they are now. Here’s what we think.

Review: ‘Flatliners’ Is an Agonizingly Boring Remake of a Movie About the Dangers of Bringing Things Back from the Dead

Review: ‘Flatliners’ Is an Agonizingly Boring Remake of a Movie About the Dangers of Bringing Things Back from the Dead
If only its irony were the most painful thing about “Flatliners,” an artless and agonizingly boring remake of a semi-forgotten movie about the dangers of bringing things back from the dead. Lazily recycling the ’90s schlocky Joel Schumacher thriller of the same name (once a staple of video store shelves everywhere), this lifeless new version hits all the same beats as the original, but does so without a speck of the baroque style that made it such a fun thing to rent on a Friday night. At a time when making a movie — any movie — can feel like experimenting with life after death, there’s really no reason to belabor the point.

The story begins in the present day, nine years after Courtney (Ellen Page) accidentally killed her little sister in a car crash. Now an exhausted med student at a prestigious teaching hospital that seems to accept people based

John Ostrander: Calling Dr. Howard, Dr. Fine, Dr. Howard!

  • Comicmix
Gah!

Since the last time we were together discussing things of great (or minor) import to the universe, I’ve been to the E.R. twice. Yep, no half way measures for this kid – you gonna screw things up, screw things up big time!

Well, actually, I didn’t do it. It was done to me.

It started a week ago last Saturday. I got up to go to the bathroom at 6:30 Am (normal) and things were fine. I got up again to go at 8:30 Am and I couldn’t get out of bed. My balance was completely shot. My equilibrium was gone. Vertigo is not just a name of a DC imprint. I had written Count Vertigo in Suicide Squad many years ago and it seemed he had caught up with me and was exacting revenge for any and all trials I had put him through.

Shooter Season 1 Episode 2 Review: Exfil

They picked the wrong patsy!

Bob Lee Swagger is not to be trifled with and he finally got to show off a bit of his skills on Shooter Season 1 Episode 2. Badass Bob Lee Swagger is not going down without a fight, and if he has to take a few people out and expose others, he's going to do it.

The ball finally got rolling in the second installment of the series, once the pilotitis was out out of the way. It even gave us some of the very much appreciated action that I was desperately craving. 

Let's get to it! 

Dr. Foreman got under my skin, back when I was watching House M.D. but I have never found myself disliking Omar Epps on sight, the way I disliked him during this hour of television. It speaks to how great he is, that he has made me hate Isaac so passionately just two episodes in!

5 Actors for Young Dumbledore in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Matt Spencer-Skeen suggests five actors for the role of young Dumbledore in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

With Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them out next week news and rumours have been ratcheting up around the sequel, with Johnny Depp rumoured to be playing Gellert Grindelwald and David Yates confirming Dumbledore’s return in the sequel. This gives us an ideal opportunity to recklessly speculate who could play the younger Dumbledore around 1926.

First things to point out of course, that while younger we aren’t talking a teenage Dumbledore here. J.K. Rowling has confirmed he was born in 1881 which would make him around mid-forties at the time of the film taking place. The actor would need to therefore be in a similar age range, with Hollywood’s penchant for ignoring actual age I reckon any actor late 30’s into mid 50’s has a shot. My guess is

Eight Observations About The Doctor Strange Film (Spoilers)

  • Cinelinx
Marvel’s latest super hero film Doctor Strange opened in the Us today. It’s a very good movie with a 90% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, although it’s not without flaws. Here are eight observations from a long-time fan, so beware of spoilers.

I’ve been a fan of Doctor Strange ever since I read my first issue of The Defenders in 1972. I remember watching the first Doctor Strange movie in 1978 with Peter Hooten as the sorcerer supreme. That one was disappointing but the new one delivers the goods. Here are some of the takeaways from watching the new Doctor Strange film.

(Spoilers!)

1. The climax of this film is very different from other comic book movies we’ve seen because the hero saves the day by outwitting his enemy instead of outfighting him. Strange knows he has no chance in battle against Dormammu but he nevertheless wins through a clever,

Hugh Laurie Thought ‘House’ Role ‘Disqualified’ Him From Starring in Hulu’s ‘Chance’

Hugh Laurie Thought ‘House’ Role ‘Disqualified’ Him From Starring in Hulu’s ‘Chance’
When Hugh Laurie was first offered the part of Dr. Eldon Chance he thought oh no, not again. After playing the iconic, misanthropic Dr. House on “House” for eight seasons, Laurie said he believed his previous role “disqualified” him from the role.

“But that didn’t last very long because the world of it, the tone of it, the character is so different that I actually put that aside,” Laurie told Variety at the premiere for “Chance” at the Harmony Gold theater on Monday night.

Laurie was joined on the black carpet by several of his co-stars as they posed for photos and greeted each other enthusiastically.

“I’m so sorry to interrupt, I had to do that, we can’t just go down (the carpet) without saying hello,” Laurie said about his co-star, Gretchen Mol, mid-interview apologetically after kissing her on the cheek.

Mol’s character on the show is Jaclyn Blackstone, a

Hugh Laurie on Playing Doctor Again in Chance, Envying George Clooney's ER Recall and Returning to Veep
This week, Hugh Laurie returns to television in an hour-long drama series that centers on a tormented doctor whose one-syllable last name also happens to be the title of the show.

And that’s pretty much where the House parallels begin and end.

In the noir-ish thriller Chance, which debuts Wednesday on Hulu, the actor best known as Dr. Gregory House plays Dr. Eldon Chance, a mild-mannered(!) and compassionate(!!) neuropsychiatrist who gets sucked into a violent and dangerous world of mistaken identity, police corruption and mental illness while grappling with his own existential crisis.

In the following Q&A, Laurie praisaes Chance‘s quiet,
