The CW Cancels Cult

by at .

Let the question officially begin: When will Matt Davis return to The Vampire Diaries?!?

The CW has cancelled Cult, a move that comes as no surprise after the network relegated this Davis and Robert Knepper-anchored series to Friday nights after just two episodes.

The drama was in the unusual position of premiering in February, while many also wondered why The CW paired it with Hart of Dixie, a show with a very different fan base.

"Sadly true," creator Rockne S. O'Bannon Tweeted of the news. "CW Execs once called the last 5 episodes 'outstanding.' I guess too outstanding. You are great, SMART fans. Thx to u all!"

There are no plans to air these installments, however, as returns of The Carrie Diaries and Oh, Sit are scheduled over the next three Fridays.

    I honestly think it is a tragedy that Cult was cancelled, I found the story line interesting. To me Cult was a break from the norm, I would have enjoyed to see the rest of this season. As for The Following, I find the story boring and do not like the actors! Respectfully my opinion!

    I am so disappointed!!!!
    I love this show and yes i havent been able to watch this at the showing time but i watch it on the
    CW App after it aires.
    I think im just going to stop supporting the CW because it seriously cannot even finish a show...
    At least they could do is give us the last 5 episodes!

    I really want to like Cult. I loved Alona Tal on Supernatural and was so looking forward to seeing her regularly and I like Matt Davis. I really tried and I just couldn't continue to watch it for so many reasons.

    Yeah, this is barely a surprise... Maybe now Alaric will come back to Mystic Falls. There's all this talk going on that some dead will come back from the other side in TVD... maybe Alaric will return as well. I miss his bromance with Damon so much. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    Not airing the last 5 episodes! seriously! This sucks the least they could do is finish out the season with the episodes they were already supposed to.

    Cult looked great on paper, but on TV it looked like a cheaply made show from the mid-90s. I gave up after 2 episodes. I do really like Matt Davis though and hope he'll be in a new show soon, but I don't want him to return to the TVD. Even he won't be able to rescue it from those boring storylines from season 4. Hope he'll get offers from other TV stations, he's a little too good for CW, imo.
