Amazon has canceled A League of Their Own again. Amazon previously canceled the show, a gorgeous queer-centered story about professional woman baseball players in the 1940s. Then Amazon brought the show back for a shortened season to wrap up storylines.
Now it's canceled the show again, with Deadline suggesting it was “believed to stem from the length of the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.” Which...sure. That’s a claim you can make, but it certainly feels like a punishment more than a business decision.
When the show was initially canceled, showrunner Will Graham tweeted that its audience was “very big,” but he was unclear on exact numbers due to the practice of streaming services not disclosing streaming metrics.
This one feels like a total swing and a miss on Amazon’s part.
