NBC aired only seven episodes of Save Me but 13 episodes were supposedly ordered in May 2012. What happened?
Well, it seems that 13 installments were indeed produced of the Anne Heche comedy but the network opted to only air the pilot and episodes eight through 13. The Futon Critic suggests that the unaired episodes are likely the ones that were shot before Alexa Junge was replaced as showrunner by Darlene Hunt.
Unfortunately, the peacock network has no plans to air the cancelled show’s remaining episodes.
Though there were some devoted viewers, Save Me did very poorly in the ratings and averaged only a 0.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 2.78 million viewers. The series finale was the lowest-rated episode.
A complete series set of Save Me may be released on DVD at some point but no plans have been announced thus far.
