Forever, ABC's police procedural about a man who can possibly live … forever (get it?), might not make it to season 2 following its May 5 finale. In the event that the bubble show is canceled, star Ioan Gruffudd has a sweet message to share with the show's dedicated fans.

 

"If this is the end, I want everybody who is a fan of the show to know that I will be as devastated as they are," the actor, who plays the un-killable Henry Morgan, told Us Weekly. "He's an amazing character. I've loved, loved playing him. It's a real gift of a part for an actor of my age to be striving in a procedural and a costume drama every week. It's been such a pleasure to play him."

Although the show has struggled in the ratings throughout its first season, it has amassed a small but loyal fan base online. Gruffudd, 41, said he knows that many people didn't know of the show, but if they saw it they were immediately hooked.

 

"It's pretty extraordinary — people who have seen the show are are huge fans of the show, and [everyone else] has never heard of the show. We're very much on the bubble because we weren't a runaway hit, but if you ask anybody that's seen the show they can't believe that it's not a big hit. People are so passionate about it."

 

That includes the actors on the show. Put simply, Gruffudd said, "I will be absolutely gutted if we don't get to go again."
