Dead Zone, 4400 Cancelled

Ausiello reports that the USA Network has cancelled The Dead Zone and The 4400, both
of which have aired their last episodes.

4400 creator and Executive Producer Scott Peters confirmed the cancellation on a message posted on the official 4400 Web board, repeated on TV Guide‘s Web site, telling loyal fans “The 4400 has been cancelled. We’ve had a great time bringing you this story and submersing you in the lives of all these incredible characters.

“I just spoke to Joel [Gretsch, who played male lead Tom Baldwin] and we had a great talk about what we all accomplished and how much we’ll miss our family that is our crew and our cast… and our fans. But at least we got to go out with a bang! I had an awesome time directing the last episode. I think I got to make almost every single cast member cry (on camera). How much fun was that?!”

The Dead Zone was an impressive hit for the USA Network in its early seasons but the show was revamped for its sixth season and the re-formatting proved unsuccessful.
