Not so good news for one of our favorite shows! Fox has pulled the plug, officially canceling drama Pitch after one season. The series, set in the confines of Major League Baseball, sets its focus on a young pitcher noted for her screwball pitch who becomes the first woman to play in the Major Leagues, when she is chosen to play for the San Diego Padres.
According to a report, the shows cast and producers, including creator/executive producer Dan Fogelman and exec producer Kevin Falls, were informed of the network’s decision today. The show’s star, Kylie Bunbury, shared the news on social media. See her message below.
My heart is heavy. ? Pitch will not be returning. I don’t have some eloquently thought out caption, because I’m still processing it all. Ginny Baker has profoundly changed my life and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to play a role that resonated with so many people. I wasn’t ready to let go of Ginny, but more than anything I wasn’t ready to let go of my Pitch family- the cast, crew, creators and writers, thank you for the magic. MOST IMPORTANTLY!!!- Thank you to all of the fans who took the journey with us! Your support and love for the show has always moved us deeply! I love you all. ?? Ginny Baker out ????
Reportedly, shooting a drama with baseball action scenes was expensive, and Pitch failed to bring in the viewers it needed.
