SyFy’s Blood Drive Won’t Find Finish Line – Series Canceled
The premise was kinda awesome. That’s what I thought when this show was announced. The final result turned out to not be so cool and viewers felt the same it seems as SyFy has now canceled the series after 1 season. Creator James Roland confirmed the news on his blog yesterday.
“Unfortunately, your suspicions are correct. Syfy has canceled Blood Drive after one season. If this news makes you angry or sad, you’re not alone. I found out not too long ago, but have been trying to think of a way to tell you guys since I felt it was up to me to let the fans know,” Roland wrote on his blog. “Ultimately I decided to wait until after the final episode aired so the news did not taint your experience. It simply didn’t seem right to burst the bubble so early, especially with how the last episode plays out. We always planned for a season two, but now that the future of the show is uncertain the final scenes seem so much more … final.”
The series started strong with almost 1 million viewers but quickly started to fall with every new episode. That’s the kiss of death for any new series. Hopefully this won’t deter SyFy’s entrance into horror genre series and they keep developing new shows.
