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?

Very upset they canceled this show! I don’t like many shows or movies but after watching a few episodes I became I fan of this one. There are so many shows on tv now that are dreadful.. At least produce a second season to wrap up the story line please.

Sitting here wondering when the Dracula series was starting up again. Decided to web search and was disappointed in what I found out ! I hope NBC or some network will bring Dracula back to tv.

I agree with both the below comments. I loved this show, it was addicting. I just found out it got canceled, and it makes me angry. I hate when you leave a show off on a cliff hanger. Freaking put some work into the program if you love it. I watched it on Telus On-Demand, because i couldn’t get the channel, but before that I had never heard of it. Maybe do some more advertising before canceling…

I sent an e-mail to Netflix and TNT if they will get Season 2. I am keeping my fingers crossed so it can come to Netflix.

Here is information to get Dracula on other networks. I already sent e-mails to Netflix, TNT and FOX.I like the show! The show was unique and different from the other TV shows. I loved the Victorian Era and the homes and dresses in the show. It looked so real!

OCTOBER 9TH
THE FIGHT CONTINUES – – – – LETS ALL DO OUR PART – – – – WE WILL NOT GIVE UP – – – – DRACULA WILL RETURN!
The new Fall Season has started and the new series that will be taking our Dracula’s spot as many of you already know is called CONSTANTINE. It will air on Friday October 24th. We need to boycott that show so that NBC will see that the ratings for the shows that they have put there (HANNIBAL and CROSSBONES) have had dismal ratings, far worse than Dracula had. We all know that Dracula was on the upswing in ratings when it ended and NBC knows it too. Lets drive that point in when we contact NBC.
Now, having that said, we still need to write, e-mail and/or tweet the other networks too. We are not giving up, we will not give up. DRACULA was just too superb of a series to let die and even more so knowing that Cole Haddon had written episodes for a few more seasons. We want to see them, we deserve to see them and we will see them! Lets UNITE in this effort and get our Drac back on the air again.
LONG LIVE DRACULA!!!!
