The creator of the new ABC series Rebel is speaking out in response to the network’s abrupt cancellation of the show.
Krista Vernoff, who is the showrunner of both Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19, is also the creator of Rebel.
The show, which starred Katey Sagal in the title role, was canceled after just five episodes and many people expected it to receive a second season. The final five episodes will still air on ABC in its original time slot.
Krista took to Twitter on Monday night (May 17) and sent out a since-deleted tweet in which she slammed the network for the decision.

The tweet included a quote from a Deadline article that said, “There was speculation that the new show’s pedigree and strong cast could earn it more time to find a wider audience.”
Krista then said in her own words, “You’d think, wouldn’t you? You give them three shows during a pandemic, they give you five episodes. Cool. Cool. Cool.”
