ITV exterminates Demons

Demons" link="//demons-uk/show/76510/summary.html"_blank" loc="right"> Just days after dropping dinosaur series Primeval, ITV has dealt another blow to British sci-fi fans-- by axing supernatural drama Demons.

The show will not be returning for a second series on ITV, a Demons spokesman confirmed today. "It has not been re-commissioned," TV.com were told, and although no official reason has yet been given it's believed that budget cuts are again the reason behind the cancellation.

ITV suffered substantial financial losses at the beginning of this year and announced that it would cut jobs and drama production to compensate. The cancellation of popular drama Primeval was also blamed on cost-cutting.

Demons, starring Zoe Tapper and Mackenzie Crook, saw its ratings plummet earlier this year--losing a quarter of its audience in its first two weeks. The show also gained mixed reviews on TV.com, but still managed to gain a respectable average score of 7.4.

Are you surprised the show was axed?

Primeval was cancelled?! Crap, I thought it was the most inventive and interesting show on. I hated Nick being killed, but still....!

Good, it was pish. Just like Robin Hood and Merlin. Primevil was starting to show promise again tho with an actual story appearing as opposed to "monster of the week" episodes.

I thought this was cancelled ages ago, I'm not surprised - it wasn't very good. I thought Primeval was better.

Demons definately sucked, the cast were fair at best, the storylines were incredibly cheesy and lame and the whole premise just felt too childish for most people to invest in it. Definately not up there with sci fi legends as Doctor Who
