NBC Cancels ‘Reverie’ After One Season
Sci-fi series ‘Reverie‘ won’t be returning for a 2nd Season, after US network NBC announces the cancellation of the show.
The show came from the creator of ‘Extant’, Mickey Fisher, and followed Mara Kint (Sarah Shahi – ‘Person of Interest’), a former hostage negotiator and expert on human behaviour, who became a college professor after facing an unimaginable personal tragedy. But when her former boss, Charlie Ventana (Dennis Haysbert – ’24’, ‘The Unit’), brings her in to save ordinary people who have lost themselves in an immersive, highly advanced virtual reality program in which users can live out their wildest dreams, she finds that in saving others, she may actually have discovered a way to save herself.
The cancellation doesn’t come as a huge surprise given its rather lacklustre ratings for an NBC show. It was averaging 2.1 million viewers on its live+same day rating, which would be fine on some US channels, but not for one of the “big 4” networks. It actually had the smallest audience of any show on NBC this Summer, so the signs were never good.
‘Reverie‘ aired on Syfy in the UK.
