NBC cancels Kyle Killen’s Awake

2 years ago, by

May 14, 2012

Unfortunately, Awake will not has a season 2.

NBC decided to cancel the show after only 13 episodes, which makes Kyle Killen one of the most unlucky TV show creators in the US (his previous show “Lone Star” had been cancelled after only two episodes last year). Awake only averaged 5.07 million viewers.

Will you miss Detective Britten and his two realities? Enjoy the last two episodes remaining!

  • Gabbie

    Nooo! i love it!

  • Melojas

    Awe!!!! I’m so sad. I will miss Detective Britten and the plot twisters. I love that show. I wish someone would give Kyle Killen a break and put him on at a decent time slot cause there were times when it was hard to stay awake cause of the long day. 9pm time slot is good and NOT on a friday.

    I seriously can’t believe they were dumb enough to cancel this show. Absolutely ridiculous. Would be nice if they allowed more intelligent programming to be left on the air and get rid of those stupid reality shows.

    wth this was one of the best shows i have ever seen

  • Jack Isenberg

    Once again, NBC ruins a completely good crime drama. In fact, this is one of the most clever crime drama’s to date. Thus far, my personal favorite; besting even CSI: Miami and leaving any Law and Order series in the dust.

    Another dumb move by NBC Universal. You can’t completely blame them though. The majority of the problem has to do with those reality tv  loving douche bags that have turned prime time television into absolute trash for anyone with an IT above room temperature. Great job America… Great Job.

  • Jack Isenberg

    Fox did the same thing with Lie To Me. Such a disappointment.

  • Asgordon

    great show, this is a terrible decision :-(

  • Johnbullsaxon

    One of the best shows on T.V.  I hate to see it leave.  Just goes to show that NBC does not want good shows to be on their network.  

  • John45doe

    WHAT!!!! I”M FLOORED!!! This show is FANTASTIC!!! I’m sick n tired of one season wonders. I’m guessing people with taste are becoming few and far between!!!

    I feel so ripped off!!! 

  • Kaz

    This show was genius.. I cant believe they are cancelling it, with all the crap they put on TV theses days. Perhaps Kyle Killen needs to be on premium cable channels of showtime or HBO

  • Gaurav

    it was a very good show . i fully enjoyed it.

  • Anonymous

    Well, at least they wrapped it up with both wifey and kid alive. Contrived ‘jump the shark’ ending , but an ending nonetheless. 

  • Mdt9000

    Noooooo! This was the BEST TV show I had ever seen!!!! It was amazing!!!! How DARE they cancel it. Just goes to show how dumb Anerica is becoming. I don’t want it to be cancelled. :_( loved the ending though. :)

  • Mdt9000

    *America…see! Just 10 minutes without this show and I’m already spelling things wrong. :(

  • bubbagray88

    This is almost as frustrating as when they cancled hero’s with no complete logical ending and to many questions left to answer. Who the hell is running this network? Maybe it would get renewed if there were more sex scenes and drunk douchebags fighting.

  • Crons79

    This was my favorite new show of the year.  1. Awake 2. Once Upon A Time 3. Touch. In that order.

  • DannywhohatesNBC

    OMG are they really serious! This is so stupid! Thats why i never used to watch NBC. They finally get a good show and they cancel it! Well back to not watching that stupid Network. #Disgusted

  • Jvirtuoso

    My new fave show too

  • Jakewilliman

    Gosh i always yelled at my mom to stay awake to watch this show every thursday night, I really think that the show should get a season two, I was astonished when i read it was cancelled. Also I read that the season finale was shot before the cancelation was released, so i would bet any money that if a season 2 is coming they will be prepared for it.

    I liked this show very much, and I thin they have a lot a material to conitnue a very interesanting season 2

  • Montague0611

    I cant believe they are not bringing this back! One of the best shows I have watched in a long time.

  • Cbolm

    This was easily one of my favorite new shows. I don’t like all the CSI shows and never watched them but I was hooked on Awake. It added a personal touch to a crime show, and I think Michael Britain did a great job.  I would definitely watch it on a different network, and really hope it makes it! 

  • Cbolm

    My boyfriend (an NYPD investigator) also really enjoyed this show. He would talk about how realistic is was, and actually cried when he found out this show was cancelled.  Team AWAKE! 

  • Amy Prudhomme

    I really liked this series. Sad to see it go. Agreed it was a great twist on crime scene investigation. I looked forward to every episode. Hope another network picks it up. 

  • Trom876

     This is so sad and cruel…
    I really do love the Awake serie and I really hope, on my knees, that season 2 will make it… <3
    I <3 Awake

  • Tracy

    KEEP THIS SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

  • Scifichickmuses

    darn! really liked that show! same thing happened to the great show “life on mars”! figures.

  • Chris

    I agree, I think it totally sucks that you’re cancelling it. It’s all we have been watching lately. so sad .

  • Jc

    Oh my!!! What sad news!! A really good show compared to the reality trash out there!
    I don’t understand this, would another Network carry on with it, I think Kyle was just unlucky with NBC, try another Network, Kyle, we’ll support you!!!!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_FIVPQWWLLLKUGBQZZ3EAUHLT3A Leo

    Seriously! what the heck is the reason for cancellation??? Every person who ever watched it likes this series crazy! WTH man! can some one tell me who makes all this decisions and on what basis? shizzz

    This show was wonderful! It’s a bad move for NBC to cancel it after just 1 season (I suppose they don’t like taking risks–and taking risks is a factor that makes movies and TV shows great and excellent). If at all possible, they need to give it some time–not all shows will catch on the 1st season b/c the show’s still new and thus not everyone knows about it yet.

    This is a sad,sad reflection of what audiences love to watch on TV. The solid shows generally end up getting canceled due to low rate of viewers while the poorly done TV shows end up running for years. This begs the question, do general audiences know how to access good versus storytelling? Do general audiences know what good storytelling is? If not, we have a problem.

    Awake was actually a good show–and I’m not much of a TV person….I find most TV shows to be shallow and lacking solid storytelling, so when I come across something that I think is good, that’s saying something.

    NBC should stick it out another season or 2 to see what happens. It takes time for viewers to even discover new TV shows–and there wasn’t much advertisement for this show, so I bet not many people even know this show exists.

    This is a great show and I wish NBC would reconsider this decision to cancel the show.

  • Tylertribe

    Wow … can’t believe theres not a season 2 …definately one of the best TV shows in a long time . It was not a show  for mindless entertainment , hence maybe why only 5 million deserning viewers

  • Sammm

    Best show, So mad there isn’t going to be a season 2.

  • WhatHasTVBecome

    wow this is absurd, this is one of the best tv shows in a long time! agreed with Erin..

  • WhatHasTVBecome

    wow this is absurd, this is one of the best tv shows in a long time! agreed with Erin..

  • Maelle

    i don’t get it… without another season the show doesn’t make any sense ? It’s still a mistery for me what’s really going on…

  • James

    I t was really nice show. What a shame that it will be no longer

  • rs1188

    Really, when the show got interesting, they shut it down!! Has everyone stopped watching series that involves some thinking ?? I loved the concept …it was quite new not the same simple crime drama elaboration. I loved inception and awake just had another interpretation of dreams.

  • Janet Snyder

    NBC just doesn’t get it, i.e. why they are not #1 in ratings – they are inundated (for those who know what the word means) with stupid reality shows and won’t take a chance on an intelligent drama show.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ttw7813 Terra Waddington Rivera

    I absolutely loved this show, and will be sad not to have a Season 2. However, at least the last episode ended on an upbeat note for me, and I can take some joy from that. Whether or not what we were seeing was really real!

  • sue martin uk

    here in the uk we dont see the series finale till next week and i am shocked it wont b back for a second series brilliant acting fantastic twists NBC what a joke to not at least try a second series

  • remmy

    what idiots. this was probably the best freakin show on their entire network and what do they do?? cancel it. i want to slap whoever made that decision. im officially through with nbs.

  • http://www.facebook.com/marius.e.waage Marius Elvemo Waage

    This is one of the best shows i’ve ever seen on TV. I hate to see it leave. Finally a good show, but I should have known they would cancel season 2. Shit happens….

  • Victoria White

    Just finished watching the finale here in UK, absolutely amazing show, i am gutted they cancelled it, truly gutted!!!! :(

  • A Fan

    Awesome show ! except felt like they finished it too quickly – the last 2 episodes everything happened too quickly. I guess they had to do that cause it was cancelled – reminds me of another cool show ‘the lost room’ where awesome concept was cut off abruptly and not let flourish to its full potential. really really cool show – wish they continued AWAKE !

  • Lynnai McManus

    I agree with you Erin Miller. THis show was great. Every where you turn the channel there is some down grading reality tv show on. That is not television. And when didn’t shows get another chance at least one more season… I think I am leaving watching anything that NBC produces. They just don’t seem like they invest time in it to see it go anywhere… IE Flash Forward was a good show they cancelled also. GOOD BYE TO NBC for me on this one

  • Laurie

    I hate that this series was canceled…awake was my favorite show… Please bring it back!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/ruth.storr Ruth Storr

    omg i am from the UK and me and my partner watched every episode and loved it, we did not see it advertised till about a week before it came out and it needs to have another series was fantastic we was looking forwards to watching it

  • http://www.facebook.com/samuel.vinnik Samuel Vinnik

    this was a awesome show ! watched the whole thing in about 3 days or 2 idk but the end got me thinking there will not be a second season and…. wish there was

  • Guy

    he cried because of it and PD still employs him? …

  • rururu

    i think they didnt cancel it , i think they say they did just to make a publicity to it … it is a great showwwwwww and it will be back , you will see……….. great show great actor

  • Wishing it was still here

    I was so hooked on this show! How could they cancel it!? It was very interesting and hooking! Unlike Snookie and her crew on Jersey Shore.

  • Mia

    The best show ever… How could anyone cancel it??

  • Ashley Wilks

    seriously!! i am really annoyed… Ive been waiting for the second season wondering why it hasn’t came back and this is what i find? very disappointed and obviously more people liked it than they “considered” :(

  • jacklyn

    I am sick of it 2 all the good shows r being taken away I hate the reality shows there stupid and its always the same thing nothing ever new they fight lie act like they r dateing each other then break up fight again its stupid I wish nbc would stop letting those stupid shows taen over

  • Mallory

    I am still fuming over this….*shakes fist at NBC

  • Jan

    Loved this show. So sad it’s cancelled. It was nice to finally get something a little more intelligent that
    took some brains to follow. NBC made a serious mistake!!

  • Sambo

    shame, just finished season 1 and thought it was brilliant. Was very interested in how they would do a second season considering how it ended but I guess now i will never now.

  • Lpa711

    Such a disappointment! I loved watching Awake.

  • dissapointed

    Just found out about the cancelation i think its the biggest mistake ever i hate when series start and leave u clueless nbc had a great show and made a tupid show by canceling it not a good idea but then again nbc doesnt seem to know what shows to do

  • dissapointed

    Nbc u suck i loved that show y wood u cancle it

  • dissapointed

    Now i will never know what will happen

  • Joy Harris

    I totally agree, it is such a pleasure to have shows that have a story and always have hidden agendas that the viewer needs to try to figure out, but NO! just get us hooked on a show and then cancell it and pile a bunch of crap reality shows on the public. You insult us by thinking that the only thing we can comprehend is your crappy reality shit..lGive us back this show, you started now if you can do nothing but write and publish a few episodes to bring us to a conclusion/end………..

  • ahmed emara

    why,it’s a great show,i absolutely loved it and the acting is great

  • bella

    Woow this was my favoiurite show, I waited all season for the secind season to come on and now i find out its cancelled.

  • marie2004

    I think it’s retarded that NBC cancal Awake. So any good shows are being cancaled when they should’nt be. We all wanted to know what else happens. I’m tired of finding shows i like to have them cancaled and no answers.

  • UGotJokes

    cannot believe there won’t be a second season. they take a well acted, thought provoking show off the air but stupid reality shows continue to run. very disappointed with NBC. thankfully, Fox has “Touch”. at least somebody knows what they’re doing in programming.

  • Dimi

    THIS SHOW WAS THE BEST TV SERIES I’VE EVER WATCHED, HOW STUPID NBC ARE, FUCK OFF

  • NikkiP

    Me & my boyfriend just finished season 1 on Netflix!! WHY would you cancel such a great show?!

  • Rod Thorn

    This show focused on what is really going on today. That is why it was cancelled.

  • Justin

    I think a big thing is that some of these rather great shows are not very well publicized. I didn’t even know about it till watching it on Netflix. They have poor ratings cause no one hears about it then when people finally get the chance to watch or catch up it’s over. It really sucks to see one season that was obviously meant to be longer.

  • Luke Cochrane

    I’m from Scotland and just finished watching the season finale. Not much talent in today’s television world but AWAKE was one of those little gems you happen to stumble across. The fact it was cancelled after having 5.07million views an episode is a shame considering the population of Scotland is 5 million.
