I'm incredibly proud of the work we did and forever indebted to all the fans, critics and to Warner Bros. for being so wonderful and supportive. I will miss this more than you know."

Producer ABC Studios nevertheless is looking at taking the show to cable or first-run syndication, where it may wind up on CW affiliates.
