NBC Takes 'Saving Hope' Off Schedule, Final Episodes to Air Online
The medical drama starring Erica Durance was slated to end its season on Sept. 15.
NBC is taking medical drama Saving Hope off the schedule.
Instead, the network will make the final two episodes of season one available online, The Hollywood Reporter confirms. The two episodes were originally scheduled to air Sept. 8 and 15 and will be replaced by encores of America's Got Talent and The Voice.
Led by Smallville alum Erica Durance, the hourlong drama has struggled to make a splash in the ratings. It launched to 3.1 million total viewers and a 0.7 rating among adults 18-49 in June. The news comes one month after scheduling veteran Jeff Bader jumped from ABC to NBC.
Series co-star Michael Shanks voiced his unhappiness with NBC's decision to take Saving Hope off the air. "Wow NBC......way to cheat 3 million people out of a resolution to the story #Disappointed#HardlySurprised," he wrote Wednesday on Twitter.
Saving Hope will live on, however, just not on U.S. television. Canada's CTV renewed the show for a second season.
