The Brave and Taken Canceled at NBC!

NBC has swung the ax on two beloved drama series. 

The Brave and Taken have been canceled by the peacock network. 

The Brave launched last fall with a solid lead-in from The Voice, but the series launch secured a soft 1.3 rating among adults 18-49. 

Looking For the Weak Link - The Brave

The ratings continued to dip throughout the rest of the season, and The Brave Season 1 ultimately averaged 4.6 million viewers and a 0.9 rating among adults 18-49. 

Despite substantial gains with DVR factored in, the series will not return for a second season.

It starredAnne Heche, Mike Vogel, Tate Ellington and Demetrius Grosse. 

It was one of three big military dramas for the 2017-2018 season, and it means SEAL Team is the only one to survive for another year.

"Thanks to all of you for your support," series creator Dean Georgaris shared with fans on Twitter.

"The network called me an hour ago. They were very gracious, and I’m grateful for the chance they took in putting us on the air."

Meanwhile, Taken's cancellation is unsurprising. Taken Season 2 is averaging just 2.8 million viewers and a 0.4 rating on Friday nights. 

Despite a major revamp, these figures are off almost 60 percent from this time last year. NBC recently pulled the show from the schedule. 

Taken New Tall

The two series mark NBC's first cancellations of the season. The Blacklist, Timeless, Rise, Great News, and Champions are still awaiting confirmation of whether they will continue.
