I previously reported that Spike TV decided to can Blade: The Series for a second season due to declining ratings. Today I get word from Neil Jackson (via is MySpace page), that New Line is still behind the series and is currently shopping it around to be picked up by another outlet. FX? SciFi? G4? Any of these should jump on the chance to pick this series up to play during one of their off season moments. Since Eureak on SciFi is off for a season, now would be a perfect time for Blade to slip in and continue its better than average story.
Thank you to everyone who watched the show, stood in our corner and rallied for the cause. It was a blast to work on, and your encouragement and enthusiasm made it all the more so. I know this sentiment is echoed by the rest of the cast and crew.
The series is yet to air abroad, and there are also DVD sales which all could contribute to the show being picked up on another network, allowing Blade to rise into a new and glorious dawn (sorry… getting a little carried away). But for now I just want to thank everyone for your comments, mails and support.
