ABC has made the decision not to move forward with a drama series, pulling the plug on the alien drama “The Whispers” after one season, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
“The Whispers,” which starred Lily Rabe and Barry Sloane, aired 13 episodes this summer, pulling decent ratings.
“The series opened to respectable returns — 1.5 million among adults 18-49 in its Monday at 10 p.m. slot — and ranked as ABC’s highest-rated summer scripted premiere since the now-canceled Canadian import ‘Rookie Blue,'” THR notes. “With three days of delayed viewing, that jumped 53 percent to a 2.3 — becoming the highest-rated three-day gainer among summer debuts on any network since CBS’s ‘Under the Dome’ in 2013.”
The series reportedly remains a standout performer among DVR viewers.
