Cult Returning to The CW to Air Its Last Six Episodes
If you need closure on The CW’s cancelled show Cult, there’s good news. The network is planning to air the final six episodes this summer over three nights.
Creator Rockne O’Bannon tweeted the announcement last night, saying, “Great news #TrueBelievers: The CW will be airing the shocking final episodes of #Cult in 2 hour blocks 8pm-10pm on 6/28, 7/5 & 7/12. Enjoy!!”
The show starred Matt Davis as a journalist named Jeff, who’s investigating his brother’s involvement with a TV show — also named Cult. The show-within-the-show had rabid viewers who took the obsession to murderous levels.
Cult — the real-life version — never found the same fanbase as its fictional counterpart. It was quickly moved from Tuesday nights to Fridays, following Nikita. After seven episodes, The CW cancelled Cult and pulled the remaining episodes from its schedule.
