Smash Lives! Ovation Picks Up Rights to Broadcast Canceled Musical Drama

Smash Lives! Ovation Picks Up Rights to Broadcast Canceled Musical Drama
Katharine McPhee & Megan Hilty in 'Smash'
Ovation will re-air both seasons of 'Smash' starting this summer.

Missing Hit List? Pining for Bombshell? Thinking about Linda? Smash fans will get another shot to relive the experience of the two-season musical drama this summer, as Ovation (an arts television network) has landed the rights to air the recently canceled NBC series.

According to Deadline, the first season of the Broadway dramedy will debut on Ovation on July 19; subsequent episodes will air on Fridays at 8PM, and the show’s second season will premiere sometime in November.

Smash was canceled in May after failing to perform (get it?) in the four different timeslots in which it aired. NBC pulled the plug on the ailing drama, which developed something of a cult fan base in the Broadway community.

Even though we’ve all got plenty of original Smash songs cued up on our playlist, here’s another reminder—named Megan Hilty—why we’ll definitely be tuning in to Ovation this summer.
