Sometimes it would be better to cancel something else… point intended… Freeform has canceled Dead of Summer. We really hope they release this show on bluray/dvd soon.
And by the way… we still believe in Charlie Roan.
UPDATE: We thought only Liz wasn’t involved in season 2, but TV LINE says “none of the original cast was expected back.”
Dead of Summer won’t live to see another season.
Freeform has cancelled the horror-drama after its 10-episode freshman run, which averaged fewer than 500,000 weekly viewers and a 0.2 demo rating — losing well more than half of its Tuesday lead-in (Pretty Little Liars Season 7 averaged 1.2 mil and a 0.6).
The cabler’s other summer launch, Guilt, was similarly cancelled last month after putting up even lower numbers on Monday nights.
Created by Once Upon a Time‘s Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz and set at a summer camp in the 1980s, the Season 2 plan for Dead of Summer was to visit camp owner Deb’s (Elizabeth Mitchell) experiences as a Stillwater counselor in the 1970s, though none of the original cast was expected back.
