Well, as we saw with “The Dark Tower,” all Stephen King adaptations can’t be winners or even “It.” And it would appear that “The Mist was not one of those winners.
Spike has announced today that they are cancelling their adaptation of “The Mist” after one season. Spikes take on “The Mist” was drastically different than the film and original story it was based on. In the series a small town is still besieged by an ominous fog, but rather than having monsters hiding in the mist, they opted to have psychological terror in the mist. Cause that’s waaaaaaaay cheaper than making monsters.
So pour one out for “The Mist.” A show that underperformed so badly it didn’t even last as long as “Under the Dome.”
