Even before rebranding as Paramount Network in 2018, Viacom’s Spike TV cable channel has once again begun to dip a toe into scripted programming. Is it putting its best foot forward with The Mist — based on the Stephen King’s sci-fi thriller of the same name? Will The Mist be cancelled or renewed for season two? Would a second season make sense?
A Spike horror drama, The Mist TV show stars Morgan Spector, Alyssa Sutherland, Gus Birney, Danica Curcic, Okezie Morro, Luke Cosgrove, Darren Pettie, Russell Posner, Dan Butler, Isiah Whitlock Jr., and Frances Conroy. After the Copeland family’s daughter is brutalized, an ominous mist overwhelms the town of Bridgeville, Maine. In it are countless, confusing, concerning threats. Family, friends, and even enemies form unusual alliances, as they fight the enigmatic mist and the threats therein. Whether they will be able to remain moral and sane — as the fabric of society unravels — remains to be seen.
