If a show was cancelled abruptly, will it be natural to say:
The show was cancelled mid-season.
Will it be used only when half of the episodes have already aired? Or can it be used when a show is cancelled after 2-5 episodes or maybe 10? (Like a season of 30 episodes, though if a show was off air after a few episodes there's no way to know for sure how many episodes were going to be a part of the first season, so can "mid-season" be used for 2-5 episodes as well?)
And is the description natural? If not, what's a more natural way to describe my question to make it more clear and idiomatic?
