NBC has canceled “Game of Silence” after just one season, TheWrap has learned. “Game of Silence” starred David Lyons, Michael Raymond James, Larenz Tatewill and Bre Blair as four friends with a dark secret. It was adapted by executive producer David Hudgins from the “Sleepers”-inspired Turkish TV series, “Suskunlar.” Rotten Tomatoes summed up all of the negative reviews for the show with a Critics Consensus blurb reading, “Competent acting and a sufficiently intriguing premise aren’t enough to make up for ‘Game of Silence’s’ unnecessarily convoluted, heavily clichéd storytelling.” Also Read: Mandy Moore-Milo Ventimiglia Dramedy 'This »

“Heartbeat,” originally called “Heartbreaker,” starred Melissa George as a world-renowned heart-transplant surgeon. The series was scheduled to air in the fall, but was pushed to midseason due to George’s real-life pregnancy. During its run on Wednesdays this spring, it has averaged a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49 and 5.5 million total viewers in Live+7, regularly placing fourth among the Big Four networks.
“Game of Silence,” currently in the midst of its run, will finish out its season, despite the cancellation. The series finale will air on June 5, and a two-hour episode will air June 2.
Premiering on Tuesday, April 12 as a preview, “Silence” moved to its regular Thursday night timeslot on April 14. The dark drama has averaged a modest 1.0 rating in adults 18-49 and 4.8 million viewers overall since bowing last month. It was well-sampled behind “The »

Adapted by exec producer David Hudgins from the Sleepers-inspired Turkish series Suskunlar, Game of Silence stars David Lyons (Revolution) as Jackson Brooks, a Houston attorney who, on the heels of adding a beautiful and successful fiancée to his life, »
Adapted from a Turkish series, “Game of Silence” tiptoes around the events that set the story in motion, setting up an elaborate revenge plot with an overabundance of twists, many of which don’t hold up to close scrutiny. In that regard, this serialized NBC drama — tonally similar to the program it replaces, “Shades of Blue” — is sort of an anti-binge proposition, where it’s easier to get drawn into the episodes if the viewing is spread out enough to overlook some of the absurdities.
The premise starts promisingly enough, and in a way, brings to mind “Stephen King’s It,” where a group of young teenage friends are brought together by a terrible ordeal, only to be forced to reassemble once they’re grown up. Here, it’s an accident that results in a quartet of 13-year-old boys being locked up in a juvenile facility, where they’re preyed upon by those in charge. »

NBC is once again calling on “The Voice” to funnel a sizable audience into a new series, with the network on Friday announcing that a special preview episode of upcoming drama “Game of Silence” will air on a special night, immediately following the music competition series.
“Game of Silence,” originally scheduled to premiere Thursday, April 7 at 10 p.m., will now bow five days later. It will have its special preview on Tuesday, April 12 at 10 p.m., following a two-hour edition of “The Voice,” before sliding into its regular timeslot on Thursday, April 14.
