Nine pulls the plug on PARAMEDICS and HIDDEN POTENTIAL with just a single episode remaining

In a surprising move, Nine has opted to pull consistent rating series Paramedics from the schedule with just a single episode remaining in its 20 episode ordered season.

Likewise on 9 Life, Hidden Potential new episodes that have been running on Sunday nights will come to a close with just a single episode remaining in its current run.

Nine’s Wednesday night line-up on July 8th will include RBT at 7:30 and the brand new series Emergency at 8:30pm.

9 Life’s Hidden Potential airs a double episode this Sunday July 5th at 7:30pm (episode 15 and 16) but the show is then out of the schedule with just episode 17 – the season final to air.

It is possible that Paramedics returns the following week and Hidden Potential’s final episode is scheduled somewhere else, however Nine have stated ‘no comment’ when contacted by TV Blackbox.

These two programs do not have continuing storylines so viewers will not miss an ‘ending’ and am told they will air later in the year.

In other news, the Jennifer Lopez fronted drama Shades of Blue comes to 9GEM on Monday July 6th at 10:40pm. The show was cancelled after three seasons.
