It seems the fog has burned off. Spike has cancelled The Mist TV show after just one season. Based on the Stephen King novella, The Mist first premiered on Spike TV on June 22, 2017. The Viacom-owned channel will rebrand as “Paramount Network,” in early 2018. A few months prior to its first and only season debut, Kevin Kay, president of Paramount Network, TV Land and CMT said the new TV series had “potential,” and that they would renew it for season two, if the first season found “success” on Spike.
Airing on the Spike cable channel, The Mist 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 survives a brutal attack, an ominous mist overwhelms the town of Bridgeville, Maine. As it spreads, it threatens the very foundations of the town.
The Mist: A Look at the Ratings
The first season of The Mist averaged a 0.14 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 462,000 viewers. Because The Mist was the cable channel’s first original scripted series, we don’t have ratings data from other Spike TV shows to which we can compare it.
Deadline has confirmed The Mist cancellation with Spike.
What do you think? Did you watch the first season of The Mist TV series? Should Spike have cancelled or renewed it for a second season? Let us know, below.
I really enjoyed the 1st series of “The Mist”
I hate that we are left hanging. There just HAS to be a season 2! Please!
I watched The Mist series, it must have season 2. They can’t just leave people without knowing ending…
How many people even watch Spike TV? Hubby & I saw this series on Netflix and we NEED a 2nd season. Tie up all the loose ends. We need to know why Mrs. Mother Nature was taken after all, and why did the Mist attack Alex when it didn’t before? What could that little kid have done to deserve to die? Adrian needs to get his comeuppance. We need a proper ending!
