Fox have cancelled their adaption of Justin Cronin’s horror The Passage after one season.

The Passage was an epic, character‐driven thriller about a secret government medical facility experimenting with a dangerous virus that could either cure all disease or cause the downfall of the human race. The series focused on a 10‐year‐old girl named Amy Bellafonte (Saniyya Sidney), who was chosen to be a test subject for this experiment and Brad Wolgast (Gosselaar), the federal agent who became her surrogate father as he tried to protect her.

The series, starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar, from Liz Heldens, Matt Reeves, Scott Free and 20th Century Fox TV, got off to a promising start with its January 12 series premiere but the numbers began and continued to fall after that leading to some disappointing numbers  by the double length March 11 season finale.
