Bittersweet Farewell: Freeform Waves Goodbye to ‘Single Drunk Female’ and ‘The Watchful Eye’

Freeform Drops 'Single Drunk Female' and 'The Watchful Eye'

In a surprising move, Freeform, the Disney-owned cable network, has made a decision that has left fans disappointed. They have chosen to cancel two of their popular scripted shows. The sophomore comedy “Single Drunk Female” and the rookie drama “The Watchful Eye” have been given the unfortunate axe, leaving fans disappointed and questioning the network’s strategic choices.

This announcement comes just four months after a major executive shake-up, with Freeform now operating under the oversight of ABC’s Simran Sethi. As the cable network undergoes a significant transformation, viewers are left wondering about the future direction of Freeform’s programming lineup.

Cast and Creators of “Single Drunk Female” and “The Watchful Eye”

“Single Drunk Female” featured a talented cast including Sofia Black-D’Elia, Ally Sheedy, Rebecca Henderson, Sasha Compère, Lily Mae Harrington, and Garrick Bernard. The show was created by Simone Finch (known for “The Connors”) and executive produced by Jenni Konner (associated with Disney’s 20th Television). It was produced in-house by Disney’s 20th Television.

“The Watchful Eye” ran for one season on Freeform and starred Mariel Molino as the lead in this thrilling series about a nanny working for a wealthy New York family. The show was created by Julie Durk (“Grace and Frankie”), who served as a consultant, and developed by ABC Signature and Ryan Seacrest Productions. Emily Fox (known for “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist”) served as the showrunner.

Freeform’s Current Scripted Lineup and Future Developments

Following the recent cancellations, Freeform’s scripted lineup now consists of the final season of “Grown-ish,” the animated comedy “Praise Petey,” and ongoing shows like “Good Trouble,” “Cruel Summer,” and “While You Were Breeding.”

Insider sources have revealed that Freeform has several projects in the pipeline, which are currently in development and will be announced in the upcoming months.

As Freeform continues to evolve, viewers can look forward to more engaging content and support their favorite shows on the network.
