The CW has officially pulled the plug on Cult and has yanked the struggling drama from its Friday lineup after 7 episodes. There are no immediate plans to air the show's 6 remaining episodes. Filling its slot will be re-runs of The Carrie Diaries and Oh Sit. This news has been confirmed via series creator Rockne S. O'Bannon on Twitter:

    It seems like they just don’t wanna give up on TCD. Meanwhile this cancelation was long overdue though. Seems like upfronts will be interesting this year.

  • SeanPaul

    No surprise here. Those ratings were horrible.
    Still hoping for that BATB renewal.

  • Marcos

    TCD reruns? Maybe that indicates they’ll Renew it

  • Craig

    I’m hoping the best for TCD, but, the only Friday repeat scheduled so far is for Friday, April 12, a repeat of the season finale.

    After that, Oh Sit repeats take over that space.

  • Hardline_Pro

    They copied The Following.

  • Charmed

    It’s a shame, it was actually a good show. Now I have nothing to watch on Friday’s :(

    Sounds good for TCD, they wouldn’t be repeating a show they were going to cancel.

  • Dave

    Why reruns of TCD? They should be airing reruns of BATB!

  • Oliver

    The CW have lots of unused TCD reruns as it aired straight through. I don’t think it means much with regards renewal.

  • Derek

    As if reruns of these two low-rated shows will do any better?

  • Mark Wood

    Really surprised they aren’t using shows that actually repeat well? But the shows been dead for many weeks, but always nice to hear it. And you know how utterly horrible you must perform to be a scripted CW show and get pulled off the air.

    Life is Beautiful and Runaways are the only two I can remember this happening to.

  • Michael

    It took long enough!

  • Oliver

    Also, I don’t really see the point in doing this. Its rating were horrible but I doubt repeats will do any better and it’s already been filmed.

  • Greg

    Wow, I guess there is such a thing as too low for the CW.

    It’s not like The Carrie Diaries and Oh Sit will do any better, but at least it gives some exposure for these shows.

  • JQ

    I definitely don’t think airing TCD reruns means it’s getting renewed, but I have to think it at least means they haven’t made a decision yet. If they knew they were going to cancel it, airing reruns of it over any other show makes no sense.

    It certainly can’t be bad news that they chose it over a bunch of other shows that would no doubt repeat with higher numbers (TVD, Supernatural, Arrow).

  • Charmed

    @Mark What is Life is Beautiful? Is it The Beautiful Life?

  • Jane

    Dave, they already rerun BATB all the time.

  • Charmed

    I don’t see why they couldn’t have just let it finish it’s run.

  • s0303

    why bother re-airing tcd, it’s not going to do any better than cult…

  • Jared

    Oh Sit seems like a wildcard. Last Summer it did pretty good if I remember correctly but now that it’s in season I’m not sure what to expect ratings wise. Now that the TCD has finished I wish the CW would move 90210 back to Mondays at 8pm for the final episodes.

  • Mae

    Bummed!

    I finally starting watching all the episodes saved to my DVR. I wonder if the CW will make the episodes available online?
