Cult‘s Robert Knepper has defended the canceled serial’s cliffhanger ending and hinted at where Season 2 would have gone.
Cult was axed by The CW back in April, leaving a number of unresolved questions hanging. However, speaking to Assignment X, Knepper admits to being fine with the open-ended nature to the first (and only) season, and teased what would have become of his character in Season 2:
I kind of like the fact that it was a cliffhanger – it was supposed to go on to a second season. My character was mortally wounded, but he would have recovered.
Despite his prayers, Cult Season 2 was not forthcoming
Ultimately though, Knepper is disappointed that Cult couldn’t continue:
I think what was hard for me dealing with that show is that I loved working on it so much, and I invested so much in it, and I really thought, probably naively thought, that it was going to be my next Prison Break. It was pretty obvious early on that that wasn’t going to be the case. And I had to lick my wounds and go on.
