Fox’s Pivoting will not be returning for a second season. The surprising cancellation comes after lengthy negotiations between the network and studio Warner Bros Television.
Pivoting, starring Eliza Coupe, Ginnifer Goodwin and Maggie Q, had been considered a strong bet for renewal. A favorite of the Fox brass, the show had a rare 100% on Rotten Tomatoes as one of the best reviewed new broadcast series and also was a strong performer on Hulu, which the network has been able to monetize.
In the immediate aftermath of the cancellation, there is the inevitable finger-pointing, with each side feeling that they did all they could to secure a renewal.
