So long Reverie. NBC has cancelled the sci-fi drama starring Sarah Shahi and Dennis Haysbert after a single low-rated season. Reverie’s live+same day ratings hovered around 2 million viewers during its summer run, making a second season a long-shot at best. The series aired on this side of the pond on SYFY UK.
Reverie follows Mara Kint, a former hostage negotiator and expert on human behavior who became a college professor after facing an unimaginable personal tragedy. But when her former boss, Charlie Ventana, brings her in to save ordinary people who have lost themselves in a highly advanced immersive virtual-reality program in which you can live out your wildest dreams, she finds that in saving others, she may actually have discovered a way to save herself.
The drama series, which hails from Extant creator Mickey Fisher, is produced by Universal Television and Amblin Television and stars Sarah Shahi, Dennis Haysbert, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Kathryn Morris and Jessica Lu. The executive producers are Mickey Fisher, Tom Szentgyorgyi, Brooklyn Weaver, Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey. The series is currently airing state-side on NBC on Wednesday nights.
