I guess you can say this “cult” didn’t have much staying power. What comes as no surprise, The CW has cancelled its struggling freshman series Cult. The writing was definitely on the wall for the series. While on Tuesday nights, it was averaging under 1 million viewers per episode which prompted the network to move the series to Friday nights where it didn’t do much better.
According to a story from Deadline, there are talks at the network about possibly airing the final 6 episodes of the series online. Also reported is that although The CW didn’t officially say the series was a complete goner, series creator Rockne O’Bannon tweeted the following today, “#CultSadly true. CW Execs once called the last 5 episodes “outstanding”. I guess too outstanding. You are great, SMART fans. Thx to u all!”
