NBC Cancels 'The Bible'

NBC Cancels 'The Bible'
NBC's latest crop of TV shows were so poorly received that not even Jesus Christ himself could save them. As such, the oft-struggling network has now cancelled it's biblical drama series.

A.D.: The Bible Continues was Mark Burnett and Roma Downey's follow-up to their record-breaking History Channel series The Bible. As its title suggests, the show followed the rise of Christianity after the death of Christ.

While The Bible was a major ratings grab, A.D. didn't win over nearly as many followers. As Variety reports, that means NBC opted to crucify the program.

Still, for all you A.D. fans out there — there is hope for a resurrection. Burnett and Downey are currently plotting to keep the series alive through a digital streaming service, though details are yet to be revealed.
