ABC isn’t exactly burning them at the stake -- still it’s curtains for the witches of Eastwick. The network has announced it’s cancelling the Wednesday night series, based on the popular John Updike 1984 novel The Witches Of Eastwick, which was turned into a film the following year.
The TV show, which stars Rebecca Romijn, Lindsay Price and Sara Rue, will continue filming, to finish out the network's order for 13 episodes, only ten of which have been taped, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Despite the cancellation, the network will air the remaining episodes in the near future.
However, the earliest date a new episode of Eastwick could air would be on November 25 because the show has already been bumped for the next two weeks. The CMA Awards airs Wednesday, November 11 on ABC, followed by an exclusive interview with Janet Jackson on November 18.
