Cult has been cancelled following the CW ‘s decision to pull the remaining six episodes of the serial killer drama from its schedule.
The network has yet to make an official announcement, but there are no plans to air the final episodes of what appears to be the rookie drama’s first and only season.
Creator Rockne O’Bannon confirmed the news on Twitter, saying:
#Cult Sadly true. CW Execs once called the last 5 episodes “outstanding”. I guess too outstanding. You are great, SMART fans. Thx to u all!
With the show pulled, it’s possible that Cult will be left with numerous plot threads hanging, much to the frustration of its fans, though Deadline now reports that the network is considering the possibility of streaming the final six episodes online.
Repeats of The Carries Diaries and Oh, Sit! will take Cult‘s place.
