THE CAPE Finale to be Released Only Online

THE CAPE

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it looks like fans may have seen the last televised episode of THE CAPE last night.

TVSeriesFinale.com reports that the series has been struggling to get good ratings for some time and unfortunately it’s been one of the lowest-rated scripted shows on the network. While it hasn’t officially been cancelled yet, right now the numbers are saying that it’s very unlikely that it’ll be back again for a second season.

I can’t say that this comes as a big surprise though, considering the fact that a month ago, NBC cut the first season from 13 to 10 episodes. Then NBC decided to delay the return of The Event by one week, which we though meant that they would allow the final two episodes of The Cape to air on February 28th. That didn’t happen and rather than pre-empt Chuck two weeks in a row (last night and next week), NBC just ran one episode of The Cape.

So what does this mean for the finale episode of the season (and likely series)? Well it looks like NBC has apparently decided to release it online only.

Here is a small notice on the NBC site:

The creators of The Cape are prepping an exclusive episode just for online fans! Keep watching this site in the days ahead to see a full-length special episode.

No word yet as to when the episode is set to be released.
