'Heartbeat' Won't Return For Season 2, But The Cast Of The NBC Show Isn't Going Anywhere
Viewers barely got to know NBC's medical drama Heartbeat before the network pulled the plug. Before it was canceled, the series, starring Melissa George, gave audiences a hospital-wide sing-a-long, a human-to-chimp heart transplant, and, of course, a love triangle, Yet now that it's clear that Heartbeat won't return for Season 2, and with the series finale airing on Wednesday night, you'll want to know where you can see the great cast in other roles. But first, you better prepare for saying goodbye to heart surgeon Dr. Alex Panttiere (George) and her crew of doctors at St. Matthew's Hospital, since it doesn't look likely that another network will pick this show up.
The first and only season of the medical drama premiered in March for a 10-episode run, and it will conclude on Wednesday, May 25, with — what else? — a bender in Las Vegas, according to NBC promos. The preview shows Alex waking up in a hospital bed and asking an unseen person, "Did we get married last night?" Here's hoping this story doesn't have a cliffhanger, because it's unlikely that fans will ever get to see Alex try to fix what happened on her wild weekend.
You'll have to make your own conclusions on what the St. Matthews gang will be up to after the finale, but you won't have to say goodbye to the show's cast just yet. Check out where Heartbeat 's stars are headed next.
