Spike TV’s The Mist Cancelled After One Season

Posted on: September 29th, 2017

Given the reception from audiences this will probably come as little surprise but, after just one season, Spike TV has made the decision to cancel The Mist. According to THR, the show’s pilot drew in a respectable 1.2 million viewers, but that figure dropped to 800,000 for subsequent episodes, even with DVR.

The series was based on Stephen King’s 1980 novella, which was previously adapted by Frank Darabont for his 2007 film. In an apparent attempt to avoid sitting in the film’s shadow, the Spike series took a different approach to the material, eschewing the enclosed space of the supermarket where the bulk of the action takes place in Darabont’s version, instead following a number of scattered groups of people struggling to survive as a mysterious, monster-harbouring mist rolls into town. The show starred Morgan Spector, Alyssa Sutherland, Okezie Morro and Frances Conroy.

While you’ll be hard pushed to find many singing the show’s praises, if you are still curious, Netflix will be streaming the entire first (and last) season from October 24th.
