NBC Cancels 'The Bible'
Published Jul 03, 2015NBC'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.
