‘The Passage’ Canceled By Fox After One Season

‘The Passage’ Canceled By Fox After One Season
Vampire drama series The Passage, based on Justin Cronin’s novels, will not be getting a second season on Fox.

The series, starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar, from Liz Heldens, Matt Reeves, Scott Free and 20th Century Fox TV, got off to a promising start with its January 12 series premiere. It notched a 1.3 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic and 5.218 million viewers (Live+same day), building onto its The Resident demo lead-in (1.1/5.522M). But the serialized drama’s ratings then declined, ending the season with new lows in both the demo (0.7) and total viewers (3.122M) in its two-hour March 11 season finale.

Written by Heldens, The Passage was an epic, character‐driven thriller about a secret government medical facility experimenting with a dangerous virus that could either cure all disease or cause the downfall of the human race. The series focused on a 10‐year‐old girl named Amy Bellafonte (Saniyya Sidney), who was

‘The Passage’: The Bleak but Beautiful Apocalypse Finale Demands a Second Season

‘The Passage’: The Bleak but Beautiful Apocalypse Finale Demands a Second Season
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers for the two-hour Season 1 finale to “The Passage.”]

In the two-hour season finale of “The Passage,” Fox’s newest thriller makes up for its lackadaisical pacing by introducing not one, but two apocalyptic events that spell doom for humanity. It also makes a massive time jump 97 years into the future when Amy Bellafonte (Saniyya Sidney), showing no signs of aging except for longer hair, has become a bow-and-arrow-wielding savior. By catapulting the hitherto claustrophobic story to such a grand and desolate scale, the show makes the best case for Fox to order a second season.

In the finale, the dozen Virals — death row inmates who have been infected by a virus that gives them vampire-like qualities — have broken out of the Project Noah facility in Colorado and have massacred and multiplied at an alarming rate. Amy has “turned” also but isn’t like the others; she’s maintained her humanity and has holed up in a cabin with her surrogate dad,

‘The Passage’ Creator on ‘Complication’ Created by Fanning and Amy’s Season 1 Finale Flash-Forward
(Warning: This post contains spoilers for the Season 1 finale of “The Passage”)

Fox’s vampire — er, viral drama “The Passage” wrapped its first season Monday night with an action-packed two-hour finale that, in its final moments, took us over a hundred years into the future via a time jump. And then maybe even further via a flash-forward earlier in the episode.

TheWrap spoke with series creator Liz Heldens about the many twists and turns in tonight’s pair of episodes, including that cryptic vision Amy (Saniyya Sidney) had of herself feeding blood to Fanning (Jamie McShane) in a sunny future. So, why was she helping him in that scene — which she saw in her mind’s eye as she came face-to-face with her viral father when everyone escaped Project Noah?

“Part of it is, she’s tied to Fanning,” Heldens told us. “I really like in the show the struggle,

‘The Passage’ Finale: Amy Initiates ‘Elizabeth Protocol’ and That’s Not a Good Thing (Exclusive Video)
Tensions are rising going into Monday’s season finale of “The Passage.” And it looks they’re going to hit critical mass in just about two minutes, thanks to Amy and a little button.

In a new clip from the Fox vampire drama’s two-hour Season 1 closer, which is exclusive to TheWrap, Amy (Saniyya Sidney) is holed up in a room somewhere in Project Noah, when she decides to initiate “Elizabeth Protocol.” And while we don’t know exactly what that is, it definitely isn’t good.

While fighting back tears, Amy says “I’m sorry,” before hitting a button on a computer that brings up a “System Locked” screen and starts a two-minute countdown.

Lear (Henry Ian Cusick) and Richards (Vincent Piazza) — who are in the same room as Amy, but didn’t notice what was happening until now — look worried, as sirens begin to go off.

We’re nearing the end of Season 1 of “The Passage” and Fanning just keeps getting creepier and creepier by the week. Also somehow more charming, too, if that’s possible?

In a new clip from Monday’s episode, which is exclusive to TheWrap, Fanning (Jamie McShane) is trying to get inside Amy’s (Saniyya Sidney) head (literally) while she tries to enjoy herself in the sun-soaked reality she’s created in her mind. He’s trying to annoy some answers out of her and she’s not having it.

In particular, he wants to know about her relationship with Carter and she wants to know why — and why Fanning isn’t so nice to Carter.

The Passage Episode 4 Review: Whose Blood Is That?

The Passage delivers a thrilling hour of vampire television in "Whose Blood Is That?" Our review...

This The Passage review contains spoilers.

The Passage Episode 4

The Passage juggles a lot of plot threads this week, but it keeps all the balls in the air as it reveals the past and future of Anthony Carter. All this while dealing with a cracked-up Noah agent on a shooting spree, which forces Wolgast and Richards to work together. The viral villains also make first contact with Amy in this thrilling episode.

The Carter-centric flashbacks reveal the heartbreaking story of how he ended up on Death Row, then as a Noah candidate, and one of The Twelve. Actor McKinley Belcher III delivers a solid performance as the transforming Carter, going from the initial effects of the viral injection to being overtaken by the monster Fanning wants him to be.

The Passage Episode 3 Review: That Never Should Have Happened to You

The Passage continues to build steam as the virals pay the price for a cheat meal in That Never Should Have Happened to You.

This The Passage review contains spoilers.

The Passage Episode 3

After a decent premiere, and a good second episode, The Passage lands strong with a third installment that brings all of the main characters together, moves the plot forward, and elevates the virals threat. And if “That Never Should Have Happened To You” sets the tone and pace this series is settling into, then we are witnessing the beginning of a great show that lives up to its promise.

The episode title is a line of dialogue by Richards to Babcock in a cold open. He says it after thwarting an attempted rape by one of the guards bringing her to Project Noah. As it happens, the flashback is Richards’ memory from five months prior, and seems

The Passage Episode 2 Review: You Owe Me a Unicorn

After a decent series premiere, The Passage picks up the pace in its second outing. Our review of "You Owe Me a Unicorn."

This The Passage review contains spoilers.

The Passage Episode 2

The Passage series premiere was pretty good, despite feeling a bit disjointed, a patched-together pilot from two directors. It also felt a little paint-by-the-numbers formulaic as it set the table for quite a few plot threads – including the end of the world. In the age of binge-worthy programming and HBO-level budgets, The Passage's opening hour felt very “network”.

Still, there was potential, thanks to the relationship building between agent Brad Wolgast (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) and Amy Belafonte (Saniyya Sidney), the young girl he is sent to kidnap for the shadowy government operation Project Noah. Episode 2, “You Owe Me A Unicorn” is a step up, with a cohesive tone and does more to flesh out its other characters,

Dr. Jonas Lear (Henry Ian Cusick) feels responsible for what’s happening on Fox’s “The Passage.” That’s fair because, well, he kinda started it. And on Monday’s episode of the new drama, we will see how.

We spoke with Cusick ahead of his backstory-heavy installment — which TheWrap has an exclusive sneak peek from in the clip above — to find out how we’ll dive into the scientist’s story next week, in an episode that is similar to all the ones the actor did while playing Desmond on “Lost.”

“What’s at the core of Jonas Lear this whole season is guilt,” Cusick said. “The guilt about what he’s brought upon his best friend [Dr. Tim Fanning (played by Jamie McShane)] and these test subjects and the world.”

‘The Passage’ Boss Breaks Down Aging Amy and Giving the Virals a Voice

‘The Passage’ Boss Breaks Down Aging Amy and Giving the Virals a Voice
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched the series premiere of “The Passage,” which aired Jan. 14 on Fox.

Author Justin Cronin’s “The Passage” trilogy consists of more than two thousand pages chronicling a post-apocalyptic world in which an attempt at finding a new immune system booster turned people into “virals,” superhuman creatures that communicate telepathically and have a vampire-like thirst for blood. The majority of the action takes place once the virals are already dominating the world, but when adapting Cronin’s tome for her new Fox drama of the same name, executive producer and showrunner Liz Heldens knew she wanted to spend more time playing in the pond that was Project Noah.

“The thesis statement for this season is we’re examining the bad decisions and good intentions that lead to the end of the world as we know it. So we really wanted

The good news? The cure for every single illness in the world has (maybe) been found. The bad news? The cure — or rather, “cure” — turns its subjects into bloodthirsty monsters.

As Monday’s premiere of Fox’s sci-fi drama The Passage opens, scientists at a clandestine government facility deemed Project Noah are working hard to figure out how to turn off the part of the virus’ nastier aspects; because no sane human being would volunteer to be a test subject, the docs work on Death Row inmates.

‘The Passage’ Review: Fox’s Mainstream Vampire Series, with an Extraordinary Child Star

‘The Passage’ Review: Fox’s Mainstream Vampire Series, with an Extraordinary Child Star
From executive producer Ridley Scott and “Friday Night Lights” writer Liz Heldens, Fox’s vampire thriller “The Passage” lacks edge — and that may give it the edge over other fantasy-horror series. As traditional networks lose viewers and their own library content to streaming sites, shows like “The Passage” demonstrate what broadcast television can offer: Likable characters in a serialized story just engaging enough to retain viewers without the pressure of having to binge every single episode right now. This is apocalypse for the mainstream.

Based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Justin Cronin, “The Passage” takes a relatable and heartfelt approach with the introduction to an orphaned 10-year-old Amy Bellafonte. An utterly charming, smart, and tough tomboy, she becomes “the most important girl in the world” as the key to the cure for a fast-approaching global pandemic.

Of course, the purported star of the series is Mark-Paul Gosselaar,
