cw-ross.jpg*We hear from a source within the “Girlfriends” writing camp that the CW has decided to cancel the series immediately instead of bringing it back for a ninth season. While no official announcement had been made as of press time, we were told the CW will not even film this season’s remaining nine episodes that were suspended during the writer’s strike.

Ironically, news of the show’s cancellation comes just as the strike has ended and the writing staff was preparing to return to work. We were informed by one of the writers yesterday that Monday night’s one-hour block of new episodes served as the show’s last.

“Girlfriends” became the longest-running live-action comedy series currently on network television with the debut of its current season in October 2007. The writers strike suspended production after only 13 of 22 ordered episodes were completed.

The series, created by Mara Brock-Akil, was consistently the No. 1 show in black households since its Sept. 11, 2000 debut. Original cast members Tracee Ellis Ross, Golden Brooks, Persia White and Jill Marie Jones starred as a group of close friends dealing with life and love in Los Angeles. Jones left the series in at the end of Season 6.

    Hey let your voice be heard…lets all write to the Tyra Banks Show (this is the only talk show that would pay our Girlfriends any attention) and let them know how much we would like to see the cast on there to get some closure.

    We need closure for the girlfriends. At least I do. They do the black shows so wrong!!! Fox and viewers fought like hell to keep arrested development on the air,and it worked for a while.
    Do any of ya’ll remember that old Tim Reid show: Frank’s Place? That was another good, funny black show that the network killed by switching the days it came on so much nobody could find the show, then they claimed the ratings were low. Well, I wonder why!!!
