Syfy has cancelled its freshman series “Blood Drive” after just one season. Series creator James Roland took to his blog to announce the news, saying he only learned of it recently and waited until the final episode aired to reveal the decision:
Debuting on June 14th, each week of the near-apocalyptic series slated to feature a new grindhouse inspiration – cannibals, monsters, cults, lawmen, and amazons as it told the story of a twisted cross-country death race in which the cars run on human blood:
“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 show opened with over 800,000 viewers, but quickly dropped to less than half that for the remainder of its run. Alan Ritchson and Christina Ochoa starred.
