The Post-Strike Fate Of More TV Shows

The layout keeps changing hour-by-hour at the networks in this post-strike environment and so several changes to the list published earlier this week have already taken place. Here’s things as they stand now:

24: Co-creator Joel Surnow left this week quite suddenly and will not be involved in season seven’s remaining 16 episodes. Writer-producer David Fury recently told E! Online not to expect the new season to air until 2009.

Lost: Eight completed, two aired so far. Five more post-strike episodes are planned to begin airing after a four-week hiatus from the end of eighth episode. The three episodes of the sixteen cut short by the strike will be added back in to either season five or six. Story elements cut out due to the shorter run will be incorporated next season.

Scrubs: The final six episodes of the series will be made but an airdate is unknown, may go direct-to-DVD.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles: Nine episodes completed before the strike and will probably air, but the show is looking highly unlikely to be picked up.

Now onto the general fate of other network shows:
