FlashForward, the ABC TV series based on my novel of the same name, has been canceled. The final two episodes will air May 20 and May 27, 2010.
At 22 episodes, FlashForward is now the longest-running science-fiction series ever based on a novel by a member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America; the previous record-holder was 1970’s The Immortal (15 hour-long episodes plus 90-minute pilot film), based on James Gunn’s novel The Immortals, also on ABC.
I’m very proud of the series, and am thrilled that our pilot episode, “No More Good Days,” is a current Hugo Award finalist. I had a blast working as Consultant on the show, enjoyed writing the 19th episode (“Course Correction”), was treated wonderfully every time I went to Los Angeles, and was thrilled to have a cameo in the pilot.
I made many friends among the writers, producers, cast, and crew; got into the Writers Guild of America based on my work on the series; made a lot of money; and had a blast.
I’ll never forget this past year, and I thank everyone involved — but especially Jessika Borsiczky, Brannon Braga, David S. Goyer, and Vince Gerardis — for making it possible. It was a wonderful ride.
