ABC's 'The Gates' Is Officially Canceled


ABC's 'The Gates' Is Officially Canceled


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.

    I think you guys should bring back The Gates. I thought the tv show was pretty good and the books were phenomenal. I was very disappointed to see there wasn't a season two once I finished the first season up on Netflix.

    ABC...you suck. I just finished this show on netflix and had my heart ripped out because this is the first link that appears when I search "The Gates season 2" on google. PLEASE bring it back!!! I bet you so many more people have found this on netflix. And if you actually PROMOTE it this time, it could be a success...especially now because of Colton's fame since Teen Wolf.

    Please bring back the gates! I never heard of this show until Netflix. I watched it in 2 days. Great actors! Great story lines! So much potential on new stories. Plus you left us hanging! What happened. I hate series like this that just end. Like terra nova! Great shows that some idiots don't know how to advertise so the show fails. Too bad your loss! Don't want to see your shows again if that's what you do to these great shows and the viewers! Please bring it back. Or at least to Netflix

    I LOVED this show. I am so sick of getting stuck on shows that end up canceled. THIS is exactly why I am not a TV person. I HATE when I am left hanging like this. Just like the series firefly. At least with that one they made a movie to give up some closure. The least you can do with this show to give all us Gates fans some closure. Just sayin. I'm not gonna watch anymore ABC shows till I start at least gettin closure to the shows that have gotten canceled.

    I just finished watching this show on netflix and decided to see if there was a season 2. I was sadly disappointed that there wasn't. I belive that if there were more advertisment for the show then more people would watch it. Also you can not end a show with loose ends..What the hell is CHARLIE? What happens to Devon, Dylan and Caire Radcliff?!?! This is not right!!!!!

    Really ABC! You guys are so stupid for not keeping this show going. If you had made another season and ADVERTISED it you would have got all the viewers you ever could have wanted. I just watched this on netflix and if I had actually seen advertisements for this show I would have started watching long ago. I was sooo dissapointed when after watching the first season I went online to find out about the second and discovered there was no more! You cannot just start something and never finish! You had a wonderful thing and obviously could not see that.

    I just finished the season 1 on netflix... and the way it ends leaves you wanting for more. I'm not a fan of regular TV but this was/is a great show... I find all the Season Series on Netflix that have been ABC aired/broadcasted.. are great but ALWAYS Canceled. Not a promising feeling ... but advice to the network "advertising brings ratings" I'm sure if you bring this one back now... and advertise - the ratings would soar! "Just a thought"

    I am so disappointed that they would do this. This show was very well done. The cast was good. The story was excellent, the only thing bad about it was the time slot, they would get so many more fans and views if they just pushed for it to be earlier they would have a legit show. OMG i finally watched the first season again hoping there would be some miracle or statement saying it'd be on again. Please bring it back its been about 2 years aarrrrggggh!!!

    Jun 05, 2012

    Ok I friking love the Gates and to end it like that was ridiculous. The only reason it didn't do well is because of timing if you have the right show on at the wrong time no one is gonna watch it. You cannot put a new show at a faulty time because then people already have other shows that they wanna watch at that time and if it is already an old favorite then they will choose that one! You have to bring it back and you have to change the time! You are going to loose a lot of people watching your channel if you haven't figured that out by now if you don't bringing the gates back. PLEASE just TRY ANOTHER TIME!!!!!!!!!!!

    May 18, 2012

    I only recently discovered The Gates and watched the first season within a few days. I was so engrossed in it, the characters were good, old ideas were put together in an original way, the writing was good, the graphics, and the actors were amazing (especially Luke Mably). I am so angry with ABC and other television networks for always cancelling good shows after one season and then keeping a bunch of crappy shows. So I just wanted to say that ABC sucks! and I wish someone would bring back this show.

    I can't believe this was cancelled on such a cliffhanger. What a kick in the teeth. This channel has no respect for their viewer, you would think they would at least try to wrap up the story before they cancelled it for the fans who had gotten into it. It isn;t the fans fault they didn't advertise the show at all! I would have watched the series a lot sooner but I had never heard of it. Now I'm gutted I watched the whole season 1 for no reason. Absolutely gutted.

    i find it interesting that even though they had a popular cast, dedicated fans, almost 3 million viewers on its finale, and people STILL begging for it back a year later, ABC is ignorant enough to not bring it back. without viewers the station is nothing. if you want to be as successful as FOX, USA, TBS, abcfamily, and NBC, bring the show back. you actually had a future with it -__-

    Please ABC you have to put the gates back on the game.here in brazil we love this series. At least why don't you think in a end for the series on the video games? imagine we controlling nick monohan on a xbox 360.

    I won't loose hope. The Game, which is awesome show was cancelled and later picked up by another network. The word will get out and someone will pick them up. This show is better than Twilight and any other Vampire movie or series. And I am a serious Twilight and Buffy Fan. It's coming back...just believe it. ABC you made a big mistake.

    Feb 17, 2011

    I would like to apologize to ABC on behalf of all the potty-mouthed comments left by the angry viewers. It is the cancelation grief talking. I wish I could get in touch with someone who would listen to me about the show. I fear I googled this way too late and I repproach myself. I find myself getting very annoyed because at this time NBC is airing "Outsourced" and "The Gates" was canceled? I guess I'll go to bed and think about this then one day in the distant future we will all be dead and "The Gates" will be a fond memory for some of us and a blemish on the face of ABC. Oh the humanity!! If anyone is aware of an online support group for those devastated by "The Gates" cancelation please drop me a URL here.

    Please, please bring back the Gates. This is "Twin Peaks" all over again. If you bring it back with "marketing" things will be a lot different. The show had a following and excitement and intensity and a lot of actors who really did look like Vsampires and Werewolves when they were their regular selves. There was something for everyone as it appealed to several generations. Only in "The Gates" could you have lesbian vampires but I digress. I have bad teeth and can't afford dental treatment and I DO have insurance. "The Gates" was a great distraction to the shame of my mouth. You might think that sounds stupid but trust me when I say I am being very sincere. I know networks have to make hard decisions after all ABC is a business but I beg you to reconsider. You really have something good on your hands. When "Twin Peaks" came back it was then that I got hooked on the show. Poor Laura Palmer but I disgress again. On behalf of many Americans feeling drenched by the projectile vomit ABC has spewed on us, please for the sake of the country and the pain and boredom many Americans are feeling, bring back the show and I predict ABC will prosper beyond their wildest expectations. Sorry for the run on sentence and I am not a psychic "by trade".

It has only just started on Australian TV which makes me even angrier that they could start a show, get people sucked in and then know that it wont be back for another season. GGGGGrrrrrrrrr. So mad. this was my new favourite show, and now I get let down yet again.

    I dont understand why ABC keeps really bad shows, especially the reality shows and stupid half hour sitcoms, and cancels a really good, creepy show. The show never got the promotion it deserved and it's way better than Supernatural and just as good as Vampire diaries. Really don't understand it at all.

    IF ABC was smart, what they would do is give 'The Gates' a re-run. RE-RUN all the episodes WITH promotion, and see how good the ratings are this time!! IF ABC was SMART, they would bring back 'The Gates' for another season. The REALITY crap, needs to go! Who cares about rich nagging housewives, or celebrities trying to dance or skate, or stupid crap like that. It's old! Bring back "The Gates" and promote it right! You'll get your ratings!!

    Nov 30, 2010

    ABC this was truly a great show that kept us eagerly looking forward to Sunday. 10:00 p.m. wasnt the best time slot considering work/school the next day, but because of how great the show was, we watched at 10:00p.m. anyway! Andie, Brett, Charlie, Claire, Devon, Dylan, Leigh, Marcus, Nick, Peg, and Sarah, thanks for a great job. Thanks for giving us something to look forward to and obviously voice our concerns over. The staff that portrayed you on the screen really brought you to life for us. Thanks for those memories. ABC, you had a chance to capture the True Blood fans from HBO but I guess that wasnt the goal. I hope another network picks them up and Kills ABC with the ratings!!!

And the airing time for gates - SUMMER, 10pm, SUNDAY, some have to work, some are on holiday, whatever, summer isn't a god time to start a show! and I feel they didn't promote it enough, I've got the feeling people just didn't really know about the show and ABC can F off if they don't pick it up and give the show the shot it should've got in the first place. I am royally pissed ABC!

    After reading various boards...it is a SHAME...that once again....the people in power and the advertising execs only care about the dolllars. I remember a time when Friends, all 3 CSI's, Desperate Housewives, Friends and other long running shows struggled in the beginning only to gain viewers as the seasons progressed. Nowadays, with so many shows being cut off after 5 or less episodes is a real shame. Like others, I record my shows and watch them when I have time. I also watch more cable instead of the major networks for they keey cancelling shows...mainly ABC is the front-runner for doing this. Why even come up with a new show if you do not give it a chance to grow and shine???? I hope another network can pick it up. This show has so much potential and it has a great cast. So sick of all those reality shows... Further....that is why I never watch to many new shows for I know if they are on ABC...they will be axed..... I hope another network picks them up.........

    Oh, and one more thing: Did you cancel Scoundrels too? I can't find any confirmation on that, but I'm sure you did. I watched both of these shows faithfully. Scoundrels was a really great show too. I don't get into a whole lot of tv shows, but I did get into these two, and it's really disappointing that their already canceled. Two really great shows that were MISMANAGED by ABC.

    Oct 21, 2010

    It's not fair to drag the fans out for a whole season, then cut them off so they never know what happens next. The show came on at 10:00 PM after a lot of people have to go to bed. And in the SUMMERTIME when it's very difficult for a new tv show to do well anyway! Why couln't you have given it a second chance?! I bet if it were aired after Desperate Housewives, or promoted a lot during Desperate Housewives, the show could have a much better chance, because this is the kind of show that would appeal to that audience. Most people I know have never even heard of the gates! Or what about promoting during, or airing it after V (whenever you decide to start airing new episodes, which I heard you are)? The two shows are kind of similar, and might go well together. Bottom line is, The Gates was a great show, it has fans, and it would have even more if ABC hadn't mismanaged it. PLEASE GIVE THE SHOW ANOTHER CHANCE! - A FAIR CHANCE!!!

  •

    The Gates was a fantastic show! I am shocked ABC canceled the show. Bring it back, there are so many of us that truly enjoyed the Gates...it was very different and unique, not like any other vampire -werewolf show.

    This is crazy!!! I was really looking forward to next season. I agree, the time slot needs to be changed. This was really a great show that both my husband and I got into.

    funny..everything you see on tv and in movies now are just remakes, and the one show that actually comes from scratch and gets a fair amount of views get canceled, bullshit in my books

    The show rocks! I am so upset that its not getting picked up! I think the reason its got such low ratings is because it was on at 10PM at night!!! If it were given a better time slot, I think things would be way different. Who the heck wants to stay up watching TV untill 11 o’clock on a Sunday night when they have to work early Monday morning! I don’t know about anyone else, but I try to get to bed as early as possible come Sunday night. I really hope another chanel makes a smart decision and picks The Gates up for another season, change the time slot, and do a bit more promotional means for the show. There are so many directions they can go with this show at this point!!!!!
