(LOS ANGELES) -- ABC will only produce just one more episode of the five additional scripts ordered for the first season of its aviation drama Pan Am, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.
That means the new series will have a total of 14 produced episodes. The report says ABC will air the six remaining originals beginning this Sunday, with five being broadcast in January.
The series about the pilots and the stewardesses of Pan American Airlines in 1963, stars Christina Ricci, Mike Vogel and Kelli Garner. It permiered on Sept. 25.
Pan Am actress Karine Vanasse created some confusion, however, when she posted a tweet Tuesday, saying, “Well, we’ve received THE call, #PanAm is only coming back for one more episode after Christmas. But up to the end, we’ll give it our all!”
ABC issued a statement following Vanasse's tweet saying, “Nothing has changed. We are not canceling Pan Am. We are still in production and will continue to be in production finishing the original 13 episodes plus one more additional one. We have one more original episode this coming week, Dec. 4 and then will return in January with new episodes, airing all of them.”
Vanasse later posted another, more upbeat tweet saying, ““Sorry for the confusion #PanAmfans. We still have 5 episodes to air until February! :)”
