NBC cancels Revolution, Believe; ABC keeps Once Upon A Time, Resurrection, but drops Neighbors

by on May.09, 2014, under Television

It’s something like “Hell Week” in Hollywood, as the networks clean up their schedules to make room for new programs, while they also decide what new programs to take. NBC has decided not to renew Revolution after two seasons. The show seemed to shed viewers this season, somewhat attributed to the “midwinter break” that has been becoming more common but can disrupt serials like Revolution.

J.J. Abrams, who was an executive producer, was hit with a double whammy when another Bad Robot show, mid-season supernatural drama Believe, was also chopped. On the plus side of the equation, the peacock network picked up supernatural detective drama Constantine from Warner Bros. Based on the DC comic of the same name, it follows former con man John Constantine (Matt Ryan, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior), who becomes a detective fighting against dark forces.

On the ABC side, the network decided to keep strong fairy tale drama Once Upon A Time (and wondering what next season’s theme might be…) and the freshman show Resurrection, while saying goodbye to The Neighbors, it’s cult-following “aliens next door” comedy.
