BET has canceled drama series The Quad less than a week after its second-season finale, a network spokesperson confirmed to Deadline.
Created by Felicia D. Henderson and Charles Holland, The Quad starred Anika Noni Rose as Dr. Eva Fletcher, a newly elected President of the fictional Georgia A&M University. Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Sean Blakemore and Jasmine Guy also starred. The series premiered February 1, 2017 with a two-hour pilot and was renewed for a second season that debuted January 23 and wrapped March 27.
The series dipped in ratings from its first to second season. Season 2 averaged a 0.2 in the adults 18-49 demographic and 553,000 viewers per episode in Live+Same Day according to Nielsen, each metric down around 30% from the first season.
The news follows the cancellation of BET’s signature drama series Being Mary Jane starring Gabrielle Union last fall.
Variety was first to report The Quad’s cancellation.
