There won’t be a second season of The Wil Wheaton Project on Syfy. The summer comedy series has been cancelled after 12 episodes.
Actor/host Wil Wheaton broke the news on his blog, writing that he got the bad news while on his way home from a walk on the beach with his wife.
Though disappointed about the cancellation, Wheaton says…
I’m grateful, though, to the people at Syfy who believed in us and gave us a chance to succeed. I’m grateful for the creative support we got, and I’m grateful that I got to spend my summer working with wonderful, talented, funny people. I grew a lot of levels in comedy writing over the last 18 weeks or so, and I owe it all to the amazing people I got to work with.
I had made a decision the day we wrapped the show, that I was going to be okay whether Syfy picked us up, or not. I can honestly say that I am really okay with where I am today. I’m looking forward to doing Tabletop and our upcoming RPG show. I’m looking forward to writing more stories, getting excited, and making more things.
The weekly comedy series was announced in April, debuted on May 27th, and ran through August 12th.
What do you think? Did you watch The Wil Wheaton Project? Are you sorry that there won’t be a second season?
