Reverie Canceled After One Season at NBC!

at .

Reverie is done at NBC. 

The peacock network has swung the ax on the Sarah Shahi-fronted thriller after just one season. 

Launching in May to 2.9 million viewers and a mere 0.6 rating in the demo, Reverie Season 1 went on to average 2.1 million total viewers and a 0.4 rating.

With such low on-air ratings, the show was not expected to return for a sophomore run, and the biggest surprise was that it got to air all of its episodes without being pulled from the schedule.

"A former detective specializing in human behavior is brought in when the launch of an advanced virtual reality program has dangerous and unintended consequences," reads the official logline. 

Reverie was picked up to series in May 2017 and was considered one of NBC's more promising pilots, but the delayed launch, coupled with the lack of viewer interest is likely the biggest reasons for its demise. 

Still Scheming - Reverie Season 1 Episode 8

Scripted programming during the summer months is becoming less frequent because it's becoming increasingly difficult to sustain the interest of viewers. 

Reality TV still reigns supreme during the lesser viewed months, so it's not difficult to imagine the big four networks continuing to veer away from having scripted originals airing out of the season aside from burnoffs. 

Sendhil Ramamurthy, Dennis Haysbert, Jessica Lu, and Kathryn Morris also starred. 

There was a decent cast on the show, for sure.
