CBS has pulled the plug on a drama series that has been a part of the network’s summer lineup for two seasons. Variety reports that the network canceled ‘Salvation.”
“The series centered on Liam Cole, an MIT grad student, and Darius Tanz, a tech superstar, who bring Pentagon official Grace Barrows a staggering discovery — that an asteroid is just months away from colliding with Earth,” Variety notes. “In the second season, the secret of the asteroid got out, setting off a global panic.”
The series starred Santiago Cabrera, Jennifer Finnigan, Charlie Rowe and Jacqueline Byers.
“The second season of the summer series debuted in June. In Live+Same Day, it averaged a 0.3 rating in adults 18-49 and 2.7 million viewers per episode, down approximately 36% in the demo from Season 1 and 24% in total viewers,” Variety notes.
