Sad news for Extant fans: CBS has decided to cancel the sci-fi drama series after its so-so ratings during seasons one and two. There is a silver lining, however.
Although CBS axed Extant, it will remain in business with the Oscar winner. The network announced this afternoon that it is currently developing a legal drama series with Halle.
Written by Steven Lichtman, “Legalease” centers on a biracial lawyer from Chicago who follows a case to New Orleans, where she finds herself partnering with a good ol’ boy white attorney while working in a very particular justice system that will ultimately expose the biases we all harbor.
Halle will serve as an executive producer on Legalease.
Are you sad to see Extant go?
