It is being reported that Spike has cancelled The Mist after just one season. The science fiction thriller ran for 10 episodes over the course of the summer with its finale airing in late August. A second season appeared to be in doubt after the show received mixed reviews and failed to draw a sizeable audience.
Based on a story by Stephen King, The Mist followed the story of a family torn apart by a brutal crime, after which an eerie mist rolled into their small town, isolating its residents from the rest of the world. Family, friends, and even adversaries are forced to band together as the rules of society break down, in order to battle the mysterious mist and the threats it brings.
