NBC Cancels ‘The Night Shift’ After Four Seasons

45 Episodes in Total Were Produced

NBC has opted against a fifth season of medical drama “The Night Shift,” with the now final episode airing on August 31.

“We want to thank our amazing creators and executive producers, Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah, for their dedication and stellar work; a cast and crew that were second to none; and the city of Albuquerque, N.M., which graciously opened its arms to us,” said Jennifer Salke, President of NBC Entertainment. “For four seasons The Night Shift gave audiences a window to heroic doctors, nurses and all-star medical workers who never hesitated to give their blood, sweat and time to help those most in need.”

Debuting on May 27, 2014, 45 episodes in total of “The Night Shift” from Sony Pictures TV were produced.

  1. Good decision, if 3 years too late…

    Ask random people in the street what The Night Shift was, and you’ll see what an impact it had being 3 long years on a major network.

    Many more shows that deserve that axe NBC, but do you have money to produce more shows? I doubt it… 🙁
