The CW already unofficially cancelled low-rated Cult when it sent the mystery drama from Tuesdays to Fridays after its first two episodes drew a miniscule 0.3 rating in 18-49. Today the network made it official by yanking Cult from its schedule, marking the end of the short-lived midseason series. Sources tell me that while the show will definitely not be back, there is discussion at the network if the remaining six episodes will end up being shown online. In Cult’s place, the CW will air repeats of The Carrie Diaries starting this Friday, and an encore of the reality series Oh Sit! will air in the slot April 19. While the CW did not officially say the struggling freshman thriller series was done, its creator basically did. “#Cult Sadly true. CW Execs once called the last 5 episodes “outstanding”. I guess too outstanding. You are great, SMART fans. Thx to u all!” Cult creator Rockne O’Bannon posted on Twitter today.
