Bringing Up Bates fans were devastated to learn that the series has been suddenly canceled by UPtv. The news broke on Tuesday, January 18, just weeks before Season 11 was set to premiere on the network. Fans were looking forward to seeing many big moments for the family, including several births and a couple of weddings, too.
Because the premiere was less than a month away, filming and production were well underway. Production reportedly spent a ton of money on the new season before pulling the plug. Now, it doesn’t seem like the already filmed episodes will be available to stream anywhere. This sudden cancelation was deemed “unusual” by someone associated with the network.
So, now, Bates fans are taking to social media to share their thoughts with other fans, as well as UPtv.
