Blade: The Slayer Is Dead, But There’s Hope!

Blade TV series castAfter some speculation, it has been confirmed that the original Blade TV series (based on the Marvel comic series and hit trilogy of movies starring Wesley Snipes and Kris Kristofferson) has indeed been cancelled, unfortunately leaving fans with a cliffhanger.

A representative for Spike TV confirmed that the Kirk ‘Sticky Fingaz’ Jones action series has indeed been cancelled and won’t be renewed for a second season. The network is said to have been very happy with the cast and overall production but that the audience and ratings just were not as large as they’d hoped. The show started off with 2.5 million viewers but, by the September 13, 2006 finale, viewership had dropped to less than a million. End of story? Maybe not.

Though there weren’t enough fans for Spike TV’s liking, New Line (who produced the show) still believes in the show and reportedly would like to see it continue. Actor Neil Jackson (better known as Marcus Van Sciver on Blade) has said that New Line is currently looking for a new home for the series.

Blade TV SeriesThe 12-episode series has yet to be shown overseas or to be produced on DVD. Both are currently in the works and Neil thinks that, if the series does well in these areas, it could help bring about a second season. TV fans will remember that phenomenal DVD sales brought about the return of the Family Guy animated series and inspired the short-lived Joss Whedon Firefly series to return as a film.

Will the half human/half immortal vampire slayer and his allies return to the small screen? Time will tell. I’ll keep you posted on new developments so, stay tuned! TV Series Finale home page

    Blade the tv series is a great tv series. Please bring it back atleast long enough to close up the cliff hanger so people can see the great tv series end it with dignity.

    Pls, pick it up back for the fans around the world. The story’s left incompleted. We need more to know. Eventually, make one series to finally finish the story with no intent of the continuation.

    Pleeeeeease bring it back! I just finished watching the whole set that i bought, love it and need to know what happens next! It’s such a well made programme with good plot lines, sfx- and actors; and for once, the women fight just as well as the men -and don’t look pathetic or ridiculous when they have their fight offs, unlike some of the rubbish we get on tv and movies …
    So get your skates on, invest and bring it back 😉 if star gate and family guy can fight back and come back , then so can the Blade series!
    Come on someone/movers and shakers who make shite happen …….get off your hinees and get it back on my screen! I need to see more !
