‘Cult’ Cancelled By CW

CW’s freshman series Cult has been cancelled, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. After making its debut on the green network back in February, the series has failed to draw a steady fan base. As far as ratings go, Cult’s pilot episode managed to grab just 900,000 viewers with a 0.3 rating among adults 18-49. The series’ second episode drew 820,000 viewers.

The CW has since decided to drop the series from its slate. It is unclear if fans will get to see the rest of the remaining episodes of the drama that centered on a “string of mysterious deaths and disappearances surrounding the show-within-a-show.” The network has since moved to air repeat episodes of ‘The Carrie Diaries’ in the Friday night time slot. Cult’s actor Matt Davis, formerly of ‘The Vampire Diaries’, tweeted over the show’s cancellation this past Wednesday.

“Good news Cult fans! Cult has been renewed for the next ten season due to its brilliant marketing campaign! Good job everyone. All joking aside, thank you to all who watched. It was a wonderful learning experience, and exciting misadventure. On to bigger the better!”
