Alexandra Cunningham, showrunner on Bravo’s “Dirty John,” is a little upset these days. As she’s recently learned, her favorite show, “Counterpart,” has been canceled over at Starz after just two seasons. “It’s just been torn away from me,” she says. “I’m so invested. I lived in fear that this was going to happen.”
Cunningham is not alone. For all the discussion about the Golden Age of television, networks have not exactly stopped canceling shows, often abruptly and without warning. That’s hardly new. But a change in modern television viewing may offer a solution to that heartbreak when it happens.
