One of the hardest parts of having your show cancelled is the part BEFORE it’s cancelled, when it’s “on the bubble”. The absolute hardest part of that, besides the phrase “on the bubble,” is everyone gets it in their head that you actually know what’s happening with your show and you’re just not telling them. No one believes the show’s fate is in the air, they believe the fate’s been decided, you know the fate, but you’re just not sharing it with anybody.
