Fans of NBC’s Smash may be interested in hearing the news about the two-hour long season finale entitled “The Tonys.” The network has announced this episode will air on Sunday, May 26th at 9/8c.
In a recent interview with TVLine, showrunner Josh Safran revealed that there is going to be a musical number that features all of the principal cast and “all the loose ends from this season getting tied up — some more happily than others.”
There is speculation that Smash might be canceled due to the low ratings and the fact that it was recently moved to Saturday nights. Moving a show to Saturday nights is usually the “kiss of death” for television. However, the network has not made any official announcements regarding the cancelation of Smash. I am still willing to hold out hope that it will be renewed for a third season.
Personally, I trust a direct announcement from the network more than any other source. NBC has just revealed this afternoon several shows that are renewed for the fall, which include Parenthood, Grimm, Chicago Fire, and Revolution. The network has not addressed anything about Smash yet, but be sure to check back in for more news soon.
Do you want Smash to come back for a third season? Will you be tuning in to the season finale? Which musical is your favorite, Bombshell or Hit List? What do you think will happen at the Tonys?
