Bad news. Selfie has been cancelled. I've seen six of the seven episodes out there. I have yet to finish the seventh, only watched half. I tried to watch during its regular broadcast time and I've had it on VOD as well.
The dimise of the only current US primetime show with a Asian-American lead is sad. Even though Fresh Off The Boat will remedy that, John Cho's role was breaking barriers to a certain extent.
As many media outlets have mentioned, the first pilot episode was fine with the foundations of growth. As the show went on, the two leads developed chemistry and the supporting cast showing some teeth for further character exploration. Could there be a chance for it to make a comeback? With such low ratings, it's unlikely, but we can all pray for a miracle here.
