At this time last year, an ABC show filmed on Oahu, The River, a paranormal/action/horror series that debuted during the 2011-12 season, was struggling with viewer ratings. It was officially canceled in May 2012. Another ABC show filmed on Oahu, Last Resort, an American military drama, premiered in September 2012 and aired through January. It was not picked up for a full season. However, it did air 13 episodes.
