NBC has changed its plans to broadcast the rest of Saving Hope‘s freshman season, according to The Futon Critic. The final two episodes were set to air September 8 and 15.
The series stars Stargate SG-1‘s Michael Shanks and Smallville‘s Erica Durance. It premiered to 3.2 million viewers in June and peaked just shy of 4 million in week 2, before dropping to a season low of 2.2 million in week 5.
Over 11 episodes on NBC, Saving Hope averaged an even 3 million viewers per week.
The U.S. broadcaster may opt to make the unaired episodes — titled “Ride Hard or Go Home” and “Pink Clouds” — available to viewers online. The first 11 episodes are currently on Hulu.
In its place NBC has scheduled America’s Got Talent for this Saturday, followed by two episodes of Law & Order: SVU.
Saving Hope continues to air on CTV in Canada, which has renewed it for a second season. There’s no word yet on whether NBC will be bringing the show back next summer.
Fans in the U.S. who haven’t checked out Saving Hope yet can find the first episode as a free download currently on iTunes.
