- A League of Their Own series adaptation canceled by Amazon
- Abbi Jacobson, the show’s creator, expresses disappointment on Instagram
- 19 episodes were filmed, but the show’s future remains uncertain
Amazon has made the decision to cancel the series adaptation of A League of Their Own, leaving its creator Abbi Jacobson disheartened. The show, based on the 1992 Penny Marshall film of the same name, was expected to premiere on the streaming platform but unfortunately, will no longer be moving forward.
In an Instagram post, Jacobson expressed her dismay at the unexpected cancellation. She wrote, “I’m so sad to announce that A League of Their Own will not be going forwards at Amazon. I’m gutted.” The creator has not disclosed the reasons behind the series’ cancellation, but the show’s future hangs in the balance.
Before its cancellation, A League of Their Own had reportedly filmed 19 episodes, which may now never see the light of day due to Amazon’s decision. The series was anticipated to feature a new ensemble of characters from the film, and the story would revolve around the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League in the 1940s.
With Amazon’s disappointing announcement, fans are left wondering about the fate of the filmed episodes and the series as a whole. While no information has been provided on where the series could potentially land, followers and supporters hope that A League of Their Own will be picked up by another network in the future.
