ABC’s Pan Am has finally been officially grounded.
On the heels of ordering nine new series Friday, the Alphabet officially canceled the high-flying 1960s soap after pulling it off the schedule in February after airing only 14 episodes.

In addition to axing Pan Am, ABC also canceled freshman series GCB, The River and Missing, according to TVLine.com. GCB, starring Leslie Bibb and Kristin Chenoweth, was touted as the heir to the Desperate Housewives throne, but was only able to attract an average of 5.9 million viewers and a 1.9 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic.
Likewise, serialized dramas The River, a horror thriller produced by Paranormal Activity’s Oren Peli, and Missing, starring Ashley Judd as an ex-CIA agent searching for her son, pulled in weak audiences of 4.7 million viewers and 7.9 million viewers, respectively and were among ABC’s lowest-rated dramas.
In addition to the new series ABC ordered, the network officially renewed dramas Private Practice, Body of Proof and Scandal as well as first-year comedy Don’t Trust the B—-in Apartment 23.
