After only four episodes Drive has been officially cancelled. I’ve got to admit that this caught me by surprise. I knew the show wasn’t getting great ratings, but I wasn’t expecting Fox to cut their losses so quickly. It would have been nice if they gave it a chance to build an audience.
Here’s what Kristen at E! has to say about the cancellation:
Update on Drive: I just got an email from a very highly placed source inside the show, who sadly tells me about the reports of Drive’s cancellation:
“Confirmed. Gone. No word on DVDs, but I wouldn’t get your hopes up. You’re sweet for supporting the show” it’s greatly appreciated, for what it’s worth.”
Studio sources tell me, “I’m hearing it is being pulled from Mondays” we have two remaining episodes that have been produced”waiting to hear if they will air (and where).” Four hours of the show had aired; six were in the can. No word yet on DVDs, but if you live in some far off place where Drive had yet to tour, you can read episode scripts over at http://www.timminear.net/archives/drive/000146.html.
Thanks to Lee Ann for the info.
