The Cape has been struggling in the ratings for a while now, and last Monday’s episode could well be the last to air on NBC. At least on our television screens. NBC had previous cut the first season oder down from 13 to 10 episodes, and now a tiny notice on the official site suggests that they plan to air the tenth and final episode of season 1 online, although no official date is given:
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.
They’re calling it a “special episode”. Special because it’s the last. This tells you all you need to know about how satisfied they are with the show’s ratings performance and prospects.
Will you be sad to see the back of The Cape? Do you think it could have returned stronger with a second season?
