Spike, now rebranded as Paramount Network, has announced they will not be ordering additional episodes of the series. According to Deadline, the series is "actively looking for a new network home after a two-season run at Viacom".

considering how shitty this show was, this is no suprise. I'd still watch it, mind you. but it was full of clichés, the acting can barely deserve that name and the special effects were... well, special. But it was super trashy and fun to watch.

Sad to hear, this show was quite good, with interesting lore, better than a lot of the trashy reality shows that seem to fill our channels week after week.

Disappointing. Season 2 wasn't as good as 1, but it's still an interesting world. I agree with others that it wasn't as good without Amberle in season 2.

I actively lived through the cancellation of Firefly. That did hurt and the sci-fi world was bereft of a jewel. In this case, I did pray, that they would stop the torture (visual, acting and butchering of the story) sooner. Much sooner.

Nooo, I loved my trashy teen melodrama set to post apocalyptic D&D! For those asking about S2, it doesn't end on a massive cliff-hanger, but there was big set up for next season.

I could of watched more of this am ok with it's cancellation. Didn't feel like I was left on a cliffhanger so I think that is why I'm ok with it. Entertaining series though :)

Hope Netflix Hulu or another channel come to the rescue!! I really like the show; yes have a lot of "I know that would happend" but has a very good premise and don't are totally "good ending bad people are bad and the good are always right" and that's the more interesting part of all...The magic and creatures are the cherry!

After having read the books I kow they went completely off the tracks with the story - but it was really good! I love this show! It was the kind of fantasy that you usually only get to see on the big screen, not on TV. It was really well made. Now, I really hope it will be picked up by another network. It was stupid to cancel it! And, again, raises the question why good shows are getting cancelled and trash stays on TV. Every time there is a really good fantasy show on TV, it gets cancelled way too early.
Besides, now I will never find out what happend to Wil.

It had potential, but with the weird Lord-of-the-Rings-meets-Twillight vibe and the bad production values and performances of season 2 I am not surprised it got cancelled.

1st it was on MTV then Spike/Paramount why not sci-fi channel or streaming channel instead like Netflix or Hulu oh yeah because of the cost of production $. Hopefully, the show can find a permanent home.

Not the best fantasy genre show on TV, but a great premise and lots of potential. Still I did enjoy watching. S2, not as good as S1, but the great setup for S3 should be used. It already airs on Netflix, fingers crossed they take it on board as one of their own shows.

It was moved around too much and by 2nd season it killed off too many characters to keep me interested.

If they had stuck even remotely close to the books they might have had a chance. Instead they threw in a bunch of clique garbage tropes and destroyed any chance they could have had to bring in fans of the series. Much like the garbage that was the Wizard of Truth series a few years ago. Or what Game of Thrones has turned into since the Red Wedding. Another show that has predictably gone down the tubes.

Let it die quickly. It was not good, especially season 2 which was near unwatchable because of the decisions made in season 1.
