Rubicon has been officially canceled.


Here's one of the many articles pertaining to the series cancellation.

Makes me sad. I loved the show, it had great potential, but I guess the ratings were too low.

I already commented about this on the previous post, but I thought it might be worth discussing in a new entry...

As the subject says, is there a way we can still salvage the show?  I ask this because I noticed that some have mentioned the possibility of DirecTV continuing the show where AMC left off.  After all, DirecTV picked up 'Damages' and 'Friday Night Lights' after both got canned from their respective networks.  So...perhaps if we're vocal enough, maybe we could get them to do the same for 'Rubicon'.  It wouldn't hurt to try, right?

Anyway, I found this information from the Rubicon-TV website:   (Sidenote:  Nice website to visit, if you haven't seen it yet.)

Now that the series is canceled, some fans have suggested contacting DirecTV to show our interest in having them pick up Rubicon for Season 2 (They have previously saved low rated series such as Friday Night Lights and Damages). You should, also, continue to send your support to AMC.

22 - Rubicon

The actor who played Robert Leckie in the hit HBO mini-series talks about the incredible filming experience, Rubicon, The Conspirator and more.

If you ever wondered what happened to the actor who played Simon in the coveted movie Lord of the Flies, you'll find out that he grew up into one fine actor. James Badge Dale made his feature film debut in Lord of the Flies and didn't resurface in front of the cameras until 2002 with a guest spot on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, which lead to recurring roles on 24, The Black Donnellys and the starring role of Will Travers in the fantastic AMC series Rubicon. The versatile actor also starred in the critically acclaimed HBO mini-series The Pacific earlier this year, which will be released in wonderful new DVD and Blu-ray boxed sets on November 2. I recently had the opportunity to chat with James Badge Dale (a.k.a Badge, as he asked me to call him) over the phone about this World War II mini-series, and here's what he had to say.

I just discovered that one of my favorite scenes in season 1 was the bumper before the credits of episode 4, when Will was making coffee. I just loved the exactitude of how that little interlude was staged and shot. And then of course it leads to Andy's first appearance.

Any other little moments that you enjoyed?
From the beginning, AMC's Rubicon was a slow burn.

Although the show eventually won the approval of many critics, the show's pacing and complicated conspiracy storytelling resulted in a very small — but passionate — viewership, leading to the assumption that last week's Season 1 finale would double as a series finale.

So the question on the minds of the million or so people who followed Rubicon to its first season end: will the series come back next summer on AMC? Its TV ratings numbers have been chronically weak all season.

And after a rally for its penultimate episode (the audience rose by 50 percent in total viewers and 26 percent in the coveted 18 to 49 age group bracket), ratings retreated from merely poor to abysmal for the finale. It came in 17th of 20 rated cable series. But that doesn’t necessarily mean the death knell for the freshman series, noted TV by the Numbers guru and co-founder Robert Seidman, during an interview I conducted with him by phone last week.

Apologies if this is old news to people. but I just discovered that Tanya, Miles, Grant, Will, and even Truxton and Kale have (fake, but I assume AMC-run?) twitter accounts! They are as follows:


I think Maggie has one, too, but er... idc about her lol.

The accounts are being used currently to promote the show and try to get a new season. But I'm looking fwd to reading the back entries to see what they were 'talking' about during the show - haha. I wish I'd known about them before!
