Australian Dramedy ‘Bump’ Quietly Dropped From CW Summer Schedule

Australian dramedy Bump has been dropped by the CW midseason, Deadline has confirmed. The network quietly removed the summer series about a pregnant 17-year-old from its Monday night lineup. It’s being replaced with repeats of Whose Line Is It Anyway? in the 9:30 pm slot. Five episodes of the second season of Bump have aired and the remaining five episodes of Season 2 will be available on the CW app and CWTV.com.

Earlier today, additional changes were announced for the network’s fall schedule, with FBoy Island moving to Mondays from its originally scheduled Thursday night slot. Canadian comedies Son of a Critch, Run The Burbs and Children Ruin Everything and British comedy Everyone Else Burns will be moving from Monday nights to Thursday nights.

More from Deadline

Bump is the latest acquisition to be pulled by the CW.  Travelogue series Down To Earth with Zac Efron and Fantastic Friends were pulled in July and Australian surfing drama Barons was removed in June.

Bump stars Nathalie Morris as Olympia Chalmers-Davis, an overachieving 17-year-old student who knows exactly where she’s going—until she finds out she’s pregnant. In Season 2, with the expectations of what life was supposed to be still freshly turned upside down, Oly and Santi (Carlos Sanson Jr.) get to know each other better, look to the future, and discover just how much family can mess you up.

The series is created by Claudia Karvan and Kelsey Munro. Claudia Karvan and Angus Sampson also star. Bump is produced by Roadshow Rough Diamond (Romper Stomper, Les Norton) with John Edwards (Love My Way, The Secret Life of Us), Dan Edwards (Romper Stomper, Australian Gangster) and Karvan (Love My Way, Doctor Doctor) serving as producers.
