Just after the season finale of "Blood Drive" aired Wednesday night on Syfy, series creator James Roland took to his blog “Midnight Groundhouse” to announce the series has been canceled.
"Unfortunately, your suspicions are correct. Syfy has canceled Blood Drive after one season. If this news makes you angry or sad, you’re not alone. I found out not too long ago, but have been trying to think of a way to tell you guys since I felt it was up to me to let the fans know," Roland wrote on his blog. "Ultimately I decided to wait until after the final episode aired so the news did not taint your experience. It simply didn’t seem right to burst the bubble so early, especially with how the last episode plays out. We always planned for a season two, but now that the future of the show is uncertain the final scenes seem so much more … final."
The series debuted on June 14th and the premiere episode opened with 834,000 viewers. But the ratings quickly dropped in following weeks and settled into a weekly range of 300,000 to 400,000 viewers.
Last week, Syfy canceled the scripted space drama "Dark Matter" and renewed "Killjoys" for a final two seasons.
