Yesterday ABC went on merciless cancellation spree, axing several shows that were on the bubble including Nashville, Agent Carter (major sad face) and their Medieval musical comedy Galavant which stars Joshua Sasse, Timothy Omundson, Mallory Jansen, Karen David and Luke Youngblood. However, news has already begun to circulate that the show will reemerge in a live, on-stage production.
The show’s composer, Academy Award Winner Alan Menken, whose work includes Disney’s Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid apparently tweeted that Galavant “will live on in so many ways” asking fans to “Stay tuned.”
GALAVANT is not continuing at ABC. But it will live on in so many ways. Guaranteed. Love to our cast, our writers, our fans!! Stay tuned…

Then, in a subsequent response to a fan question about the possibility of a stage production of the show, Menken replied “YES!!”
So fear not Galavant fans, the show will indeed go on.
