Selfie, starring John Cho and Karen Gillan, will not receive any more episodes after the initial 13. It’s also unclear whether the rest of the 13 episodes will air.
The show received an average of 4.7 million viewers and a 1.5 rating among watchers aged 18-49. Ironically, social media may have led to the demise of the show, with several people mocking it over Twitter and other networks.
With the show receiving lower and lower numbers each episode, it became apparent that the show would not be around much longer.
It’s an unfortunate hit for us Asian Americans, as this was one of the few shows on network television starring an Asian American male lead in a non-stereotypical role. Unfortunately, John Cho wasn’t enough to keep the show on the air.
