Shaw shuts down talk of Bomb Girls revival

BombGirls20132Despite a highly-organised and spirited fight from its fans, it looks like Bomb Girls will end for good this winter.

Shaw have copped a lot of flak from fans of the series after announcing it would end after a two-hour finale “event” but it looks like they are sticking to their guns.

Senior vice-president of content Barb Williams said at the Shaw Upfront presentation that there are no plans to bring it back and that the previously-announced finale would go ahead.

“Bomb Girls was a wonderful, wonderful project for us,” Williams said. “They told a story that had never been told before, they captured a time in Canada’s history that needed to be told, and I think that those 18 episodes told it brilliantly. We absolutely will make sure it finishes up with a bomb.”

Williams also shut down any talk of moving Bomb Girls from Global to another of Shaw’s channels.

“Budgets are different across different platforms,” she said. “That show was designed and fit and financed for conventional customers.”
