For those of you curious about the fate of the CBS series Training Day now that star Bill Paxton has passed away, reports are that the 13 episode series order completed filming in December, leaving nine new episodes to run with the next one being this Thursday.
The series was doing moderately in the ratings, making a second season renewal unlikely. The series debuted with a 4.7 rating, but only a 0.9 in its demo and that dropped to 3.7 and 0.7 by the fourth episode. Paxton’s passing makes a renewal close to impossible at this point.
The series was a reboot of Antoine Fuqua’s hit movie of the same name with Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke. Fuqua produced the TV series that put Paxton in the role of the corrupt officer and Justin Cornwell as the rookie assigned to work with him. The series also stared Katrina Law from Arrow.
