Blade: Sucks to be Cancelled
Well, it was fun while it lasted, but Blade: The Series has been axed. I can’t say I’m surprised, but I am disappointed. The series started out a little shaky, but it it managed to build up some nice mythology which would have served it well had it been able to run for a few seasons.
What’s interesting about the news of the show’s axing is that it has come from one of the shows actors (Jill Wagner)… and to make matters worse, it was posted on her ‘myspace’ page!:
Just wanted to say thanks again to all of you who supported me and Blade the Series. I was just informed today that there will be NO 2nd season of Blade the Series. I really enjoyed playing Krista and i hope that i did her justic at least for one season! However, that is not the end of Jill Wagner’s acting career. I will keep you guys posted on what’s next for me. Again i say thanks for the support. Hey, there is always the DVD right????
Blade: The Series was SpikeTV’s first attempt at a scripted series, I just hope that it doesn’t fall into the Fox habit of killing off shows before they’ve had a fair chance. I’m not comparing Blade to Firefly or even Greg the Bunny, but I do think that they have made a mistake i axing the show… Having said that, the word still isn’t official and it could just mean that Jill’s character is going to be killed off. After all, if you’ve been watching the show you’ll know that the season ended with her in a rather sticky situation. [source]
