Valentine: Cancelled CW Series Returns with Unaired Episodes

ValentineIt may be a kinda late but the CW network is finally showing a little love to the fans of the ill-fated dramady, Valentine.

Valentine is a quirky drama that follows a group of mythological gods whose continued existence depends on their helping mortals to find true love. It stars Christine Lakin, Autumn Reeser, Robert Baker, Kristoffer Polaha, Greg Ellis, Jaime Murray, and Patrick Fabian.

The series debuted on October 5, 2008 as part of Media Rights Capital’s deal with the CW network to lease the network’s Sunday night timeslots.

The premiere of Valentine attracted just 1.1 million viewers and a 0.3/1 rating/share among adults 18-49. To put the numbers in perspective, CW’s little-watched Life is Wild drew 50% more viewers one year earlier.

Is Kate really bad?

The ratings for subsequent episodes were even worse and it wasn’t long before production of the show was shut down. The series was then cancelled amidst reports that MRC was going through financial troubles.

Four of the eight produced episodes of Valentine had aired by the time it was pulled from the schedule. It looked highly unlikely that we’d ever see the final installments but now, the CW has quietly slipped them back onto the Sunday night schedule. Episode five airs tonight and “God Only Knows,” the series finale, is set to run on July 19th.

So, is Kate the one that is killing the gods? Is she really up to no good as the oracle has suggested? Will the last episode of Valentine offer any sense of closure for the short-lived dramady? Looks like we’ll have to tune in to find out.

Totally agree, i was fond of the show, and if they were going to end the series, they should’ve completely ended it, rather than leaving Valentine’s viewers wondering. Looks like we’ll never find out what happens. Lame.

I agree with Arnold, Valentine should definitely get another chance. I love the new spin on mythology.

I think they should give it another shot it was a very thought out series it just needed some more love. and a time slot that did not compete with major series. A sunday or saturday showing would greatly help it.

I saw all 8 episodes because I live in Europe by the way, I’m not affiliated with the show, the CW or anything.

I already saw all 8 episodes and Kate isn’t evil. The identity of the evil-doer was very well thought up actually.

UGH! I didn’t read much on the cancellation to begin with except that it was being cancelled, so when I saw a new episode tonight, completely by accident, I was so thrilled — I thought they had decided to produce some more! Although I’m glad they decided to run the last episodes, I would have been thrilled and running down the street in my underwear had they put it back on for real. :(
