Rebel Season 2 Updates: Last week, ABC made the unexpected decision to cancel Rebel, the freshman drama series starring Katey Sagal and developed by Grey’s Anatomy showrunner Krista Vernoff. The revelation was especially devastating given that the series only began releasing on April 8 of this year.
Meanwhile, Katy turned to Instagram to express her feelings over the cancellation. While expressing her gratitude to people who have watched the show and expressed their support, the actress also stated that ABC’s decision to terminate it after only four episodes was a “shock and a heartache.”
“It takes time for things to sink in. Rebel presents the tale of a woman who stands up for what she believes in; the program has heart and purpose, is humorous and emotional, and we, the cast, are baffled by ABC’s decision “Katey contributed to the piece in part.

In the same article, Katey mentioned a #SaveRebel petition that is presently circulating the internet and has gathered over 34,000 signatures. The petition calls ABC’s canceling decision “rash,” and urges supporters to sign it and “spread the word” if they feel Rebel should be revived for a second season.
Krista, on the other hand, was taken aback by the news. Krista shared Katey’s Instagram post, according to Deadline. The Grey’s Anatomy showrunner also addressed rumors that the show’s history and “strong cast” — which includes John Corbett, Sam Palladio, Lex Scott Davis, and others — would help it get renewed for another season.
Krista responded to the rumors on Twitter, writing, “Wouldn’t you believe it if I told you? During a pandemic, you give them three shows, and they give you five episodes. Cool, cool, cool. Cool.”
