As reported by Deadline, The CW has decided to cancel “The Outpost.”
The decision comes as “The Outpost” has been experiencing an overall decline in viewership compared with earlier seasons. Season 1 averaged about 680,000 total viewers, (via TV Series Finale), then dropped to 590,000 for Season 2 (via TV Series Finale). The extended third season dropped even lower, to an average of 397,000 viewers, with only one episode topping 500,000 (via TV Series Finale). Overall, it was just the 26th most-watched show on The CW among the 18-49 demographic (via TV Series Finale). That was apparently enough for The CW to pull the plug.
However, there is at least one silver lining: Deadline also announced that the current, super-sized Season 3 will get to conclude its run, with the finale airing on October 7. So, at least fans will get to see all of the existing episodes of “The Outpost,” even if they might not tell the whole story.
