NBC Cancels ‘Emerald City’

Ten Episodes in Total Aired

NBC, not surprisingly, has opted against a second season of fantasy drama “Emerald City.” Debuting on Jan. 6, “Emerald City” was a darker take on the classic “Wizard of Oz,” following 20-year-old Dorothy Gale, played by Adria Arjona, and her K9 police dog from Kansas who, after a tornado, are transported to a mystical land of competing kingdoms, lethal warriors, wicked witches, dark magic, and a bloody battle for supremacy. Vincent D’Onofrio starred as the wizard, and other cast members included Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Ana Ularu, Gerran Howell, Jordan Loughran, and Mido Hamada.

The now final episode of “Emerald City” aired on March 3. Ten episodes in total were produced.

Just last week, NBC officially swung the axe on freshman sitcom “Powerless.”
