BROTHERHOOD ON HIATUS

Post by kjshd05 » Tue Mar 03, 2009 5:43 am

Asking if BH will be back:

"According to Fionnula, who plays Providence mob matriarch Rose Caffee on the Showtime drama, 'we're on hiatus, and we're waiting to hear what Showtime's pleasure is about that. It will all have to be balanced with what else Showtime has on its roster for this next year. Usually the shooting season was the summer, so I should imagine that we'll
know soon'"

:-( When are they going to put us out of our misery and just tell us. Its soooo bloody obvious that our beloved show is :evil: doomed,doomed DOOMED :evil: . But until they actually make it official a nagging voice in the back of my head whispers "Maybe just maybe there's a chance....it might come back...don't give up hope yet.." I really do must stop listening to those voices in my head. Oh but I do miss Brotherhood. Seeing Jason on a weekly basis was such a treat beyond words. :oops:

So, in theory, there's till hope for another season?
This is very frustrating, isn't it? :-(

Especially since Clarke has signed up for a new legal drama.

I expect it's not up to Fionnula to break the news anyway. There's probably a gag order in place that forbids them saying anything before Showtime does.

I don't think BH is coming back. Showtime is not saying anything so we don't cancel our subscriptions.
Well, I'll probably cancel mine and if by any stretch of the imagination it does come back I'll just sign up again.
Plus they just raised the price again and without BH it's not worth it.

Ugh! They do that a LOT. I hate the way they censor the board. Just another thing I hate about you Showtime! :bat

DAMN! This is worse than waiting to find out about the freaking strike. :whack
Showtime really needs to agree to something, and just spill the beans about it already.
But, I have to side with Kim on this. Seeing as how JC (Tom Caffee) is going to be on a CBS drama, there's just no other way of saying it.
BROTHERHOOD IS OVER! :bawl :bawl :bawl
If you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go cry in Michael's arms. TTFN!

Come on, Ladies. grannybear summed it up perfectly:

I don't think BH is coming back. Showtime is not saying anything so we don't cancel our subscriptions.

Plus, their deleting Kim's post on the website speaks volumes. So, cancel away! Save your money!

And I heard an announcement on one of our radio stations giving a list of showtime programs...so help me BH was mentioned....I am going to listen again tomorrow morning and see if it happens again....I just wonder what all this is about.

And why did Showtime Message Boards delete Kim's post?? :???: It's as Helen and grannybear have said....this is over.

They probably hope that if they delay it enough, then those who watch strictly for Brotherhood *might* get hooked on something else and not cancel their subscriptions.

That's what I would do if I was devious. :roll:

is released, supposedly in May.... with the Prod officed emptied,
that really tells me its over

Maybe they are waiting to see what happens with the actors contract. And whether there is a strike or not.

I know.....probably wishful thinking that it will be back. :-(
