Less than a week after its season finale, the ax fell on a series that ran for two seasons on the cable channel BET. Variety reports that a BET spokesperson confirmed the cancellation of the drama series “The Quad.”
“Anika Noni Rose starred in the drama series as Dr. Eva Fletcher, the new president of the fictional Georgia A&M University,” Variety notes. “The historically black college struggled in Season 2, with Fletcher struggling to raise money for the nearly bankrupt institution. If she failed, the school would be forced to join Georgia’s largest, public and predominantly white university in order to keep its doors open.”
Other cast members include Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Peyton Alex Smith and Jazz Raycole.
“The series initially kicked off in February 2017 with a two-hour pilot movie,” Variety notes. “Season 2 of the series averaged a 0.2 rating in adults 18-49 and 553,000 viewers per episode in the Nielsen Live+Same Day numbers, down around 30% in both measures from the first season.”
