Dracula: TV Show Cancelled by NBC; No Season Two

Dracula TV show: cancel or keep?It seems that stakes and network executives can take a vampire down. NBC has cancelled the Dracula TV show after one season of 10 episodes.

NBC’s Dracula is a retelling of the classic Bram Stoker story. In London, Dracula (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) is posing as an American entrepreneur while he seeks revenge on those who cursed him. He doesn’t count on falling in love with a woman (Jessica De Gouw) who looks just like his deceased wife. Others in the cast include Thomas Kretschmann, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Victoria Smurfit, Katie McGrath, and Nonso Anozie.

The show’s debut did respecatably for a Friday night show but dropped much lower in subsequent weeks. The first season averaged a 1.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 3.25 million total viewers.

Hannibal and Dracula are both produced under a unique deal that costs the network much less than other original drama series. Hannibal’s license fee is set to go down for season three so the network ultimately decided to renew that show and cancel Dracula.

It seems like Dracula’s studios could still potentially produce a second season for another outlet but there hasn’t been any news of that thus far.

What do you think? Do you think Dracula should have been cancelled or renewed for a second season? Would you follow the series to another channel or pay to see a second season?

Please put this show back on NBC, come on seriously… you’d all be horrible not to. The show was amazing and kept you on the edge of your seat and looking forward to the next week episode after episode. I’d be extremely disappointed if all this talk about no second season would be true!

Ok NBC, you see how many people want this show to stay, so time to sit down and think about this. Exactly who were you polling ? Listen to your viewers, so many of us loved this show and we want it back, why are you keeping the garbage ? Anyone think that NBC takes a look at any of our messages ? Sure would be nice to get an answer on why they would take a show off the air that people really love and enjoy and want it back ! HELLO, NBC , YOU THERE ?
