Also Cancelled: Awake & The River

The axeman cometh – ABC has cancelled the Orin (Paranormal Activity) Oli-created The River while NBC has given the Jason Isaacs-starring Awake the chop.

Neither announcement is much of a surprise as ratings were pretty disastrous for both. But while we can’t raise any enthusiasm about The River to care either way about its fate, SFX will be sad to see Awake go. It was a smart, clever series, but maybe the two parallel time lines proved too confusing to follow for casual viewers.
