Two of the supernatural show's stars tweeted the sad announcement, giving as well goodbye messages to crew and fans.
Drama thriller "The Gates" sadly only survives one season on ABC. Although the official announcement from the network has not come out, a confirmation came from star Frank Grillo who has been grilling the execs at Alphabet upon the show's future.
Back on Wednesday, October 6, Grillo wrote on Twitter, "I'm told from a friend at ABC that The Gates are closing. No season 2 Still unofficial but that's the latest." Then on October 13 he sent a message to the network, writing "Note to ABC; get off your asses, some people need to feed their families. What's is gonna be."
It is only on Friday, October 15 night that Grillo got what he demanded. He announced to his followers, "Don't shoot the messenger....The Gates is officially cancelled. I new my source was right. Thanks to all of you for supporting us. It made the whole thing worth it. Lots more fun stuff coming."
His co-star Colton Haynes meanwhile tweeted, "THE GATES is officially cancelled. Was a great/fun experience and thk u all for coming along for the ride! THE GATES cast and crew: thk u all for the good times! Learned alot and had a great summer with u all! Cheers to the future!"
The first season of "The Gates" concluded on September 19 with two-hour finale. Despite picking popular supernatural theme like vampires and witches, the show is rating challenged due to lack of promotion and summer debut. The final episodes pulled 2.84 million viewers and a 0.9/2 rating.
