After initially reporting a few weeks back that the Boris Kodjoe spy series, 'Undercovers,' was on the verge of cancellation, NBC officially pulled the plug after the show consistently produced dismal ratings.
Its recent airing brought out a 1.3 rating in the 18-49 age demo. While the show is still filming its 12th episode, NBC will not commit to anything past its original 13-episode order.
Produced by J.J. Abrams, the show made headlines as it featured two black actors (Boris Kodjoe & Guba Mbatha-Raw) as the leads. From the initial start, 'Undercovers' never got off the ground running as its first episode generated a 2.0/6 share, with less than 10 million viewers watching.
While other NBC freshman shows, such as the Blair Underwood series, 'The Event,' were given a full season commitment, the best 'Undercovers' could get was an order for four additional scripts.
Its committed episodes will air on Nov. 10, Nov. 17 and Dec. 1.
It's the second series on NBC to be given the boot, following last month's cancellation of the Jimmy Smits legal drama 'Outlaw.'
On his Twitter account, Kodjoe thanks his fans for their support.
"Hey fam. I'm sad and disappointed. I wish they'd given us a chance to find our place. I love the show and I love you all for your support. Now I gotta find a job. Let me know if you hear of any openings.
