Spike cancels their series The Mist after a single season
Spike has canceled the series The Mist after one season, according to Variety. The show premiered on June 22 and ended Season 1 on August 24. The news comes as Spike prepares to transition to Paramount Network, debuting original shows like Yellowstone, starring Kevin Costner, and Waco, starring Taylor Kitsch and Michael Shannon, which recently released a new trailer. Waco will premiere in January 2018. Yellowstone began production in Utah last month. The Shannara Chronicles are moving from MTV to the network before the rebranding happens.
From TWC-Dimension Television, The Mist stars Morgan Spector, Alyssa Sutherland, Gus Birney, Danica Curcic, Okezie Morro, Luke Cosgrove, Darren Pettie, Russell Posner, Dan Butler, Isiah Washington, Jr. and Frances Conroy.
The Mist was previously adapted as a 2007 feature film, directed by Frank Darabont. The story centers around a small town family that is torn apart by a brutal crime. As they deal with the fallout an eerie mist rolls in, suddenly cutting them off from the rest of the world and, in some cases, each other. Family, friends and adversaries become strange bedfellows, battling the mysterious mist and its threats, fighting to maintain morality and sanity as the rules of society break down.
Bob Weinstein, Harvey Weinstein and David Glasser were Executive Producers for TWC-Dimension Television with Megan Spanjian, Matthew Signer and Keith Levine as Producers. Levy, Ted Gold, Senior Vice President, Scripted Original Series, and Lauren Ruggiero, Senior Director, Scripted Programming oversaw the project for Spike with Vlad Wolynetz as Co-Executive Producer.
