The Brave Canceled At NBC

The Brave is no more. According to Deadline, NBC has canceled the military drama after its first season.

The Brave was one of three military-centric dramas to make it to series last fall. The CW's Valor has joined it on the cancellation heap, while CBS' SEAL Team managed to earn a second season. The show starred Anne Heche as D.I.A. Deputy Director Patricia Campbell, who, along with her team of analysts, is in charge of the world's most advanced surveillance technology.

Campbell helps to lead a team of Special Ops, led by Mike Vogel's Adam Dalton, as they "use their unbreakable bond and commitment to freedom to save lives of innocent people and execute missions in some of the most dangerous places in the world." Sofia Pernas, Tate Ellington, Natacha Karam, Demetrius Grosse, Noah Millsm, and Hadi Tabbal also starred in the series, which came from Dean Georgaris (The Manchurian Candidate).

The Brave received mostly negative reviews from critics, with a 38 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, and was not a solid ratings performer, despite having a lead-in from The Voice. The show averaged a 1.6 rating in the key 18 to 49 demo. This is the second drama cancelation of the day for NBC, with the network also officially pulling the plug on its Taken series. The shows join the medical drama The Night Shift and the Jennifer Lopez cop procedural Shades of Blue on the list of shows canceled by NBC this season.

NBC has already handed down renewals to its Chicago series (Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, and Chicago PD), as well as reliable drama performers Blindspot, Law and Order: SVU, Midnight, Texas, This Is Us, and Good Girls. On the comedy side, they have renewed The Good Place, Superstore, Will and Grace, and A.P. Bio. Still waiting to hear back are Timeless, The Blacklist, and Rise on the drama side, and Champions, Trial and Error, Marlon, and Great News on the comedy side. (via The Hollywood Reporter)
